You will learn how to successfully complete all aspects of design projects from initial site visits and client briefings through to final presentations. We will teach you studio and workshop based model-making skills using our laser cutting and 3D prototyping equipment. You’ll be taught drawing and CAD visualisation techniques using AutoCAD, Rhino and Photoshop, so that you can present your work with confidence.
We teach historical and contextual studies, giving you a knowledge of the relationship between design theory and practice. You’ll also analyse the material qualities of spaces so that you can specify fixtures and fittings.
Through group reviews of work and presentations to clients, you will develop your communication skills to a professional standard and learn to work as part of a design team. Developing as a multi-disciplinary designer with a diverse portfolio, you focus on a particular area of Interior and Spatial Design with your final major project in your third year of the course.
Tutors on our long-established course are involved with design practice and research. Members of the course team have experience in interior design, exhibition design, landscape design, engineering, model-making, design for performance, design visualisation and animation.
We have a wide range of workshops, enabling you to produce work in a wide variety of media. For each of the three years that you are with us, you’ll have your own designated work space in our design studios.
Recently, students from the course have worked on projects with Bouygues Development, Murray Chalmers Music PR, the Victoria and Albert Museum, The Showroom London, Space-pod Bourne End and Pentagram London.

We also offer you the opportunity to travel to New York and a European city for study tours and to participate on our Erasmus exchange programme.
