Overview

BA(Hons) Interior Design teaches you the skills you need to take up employment in the interior design industry.

You’ll be based at Bower Ashton Studios, part of the City Campus. Exceptional facilities and resources include industry standard digital studios and fabrication workshops.

This is a technical learning programme, with a focus on lighting, heating, ventilation and acoustics. You’ll work with traditional tools and the latest technology and examine the principles underlying space, detailing, finish, craft and digital processes. Develop the conceptual ability and technical skills to design for bespoke one-off projects and industrial production.

Learn to view spaces differently and seek new design opportunities within them. Build the skills base to transform your vision from concept to reality with a real understanding in materials, details and design theory.

Attend regular guest lectures and events to help you explore employment opportunities. Past speakers include Arup Lighting, Wylde IA, Amarelle, 2 Feet Below and SJP Interiors, with technical demonstrations provided by industry suppliers such as Corian, Egger, Vescom, Abet Laminati and Altro Flooring.

Develop your own independent projects and follow live briefs set and assessed by professionals in the field. Take on work experience and placements throughout the degree, including international exchange.

Our City Campus is a creative powerhouse. It spans across Bristol and is made up of Bower Ashton and renowned contemporary arts centres Spike Island, Arnolfini and Watershed.

Our strong industry links within Bristol and beyond ensure ongoing input from individual designers and established design companies.

Career opportunities

The course provides excellent preparation for a career in commercial and domestic interiors, retail, leisure, and exhibition design. You could also choose to specialise in furniture, product or lighting design.
