Take the creatively challenging BA (Hons) Interior Architecture & Design programme that introduces you to all aspects of interior design. Develop the range of practical and intellectual skills that encourage risk-taking and inventive problem-solving approaches.
- Access to specialist lecturers with professional experience.
- Enhanced and relevant programme design through collaboration with design practitioners.
- Broaden your creative horizons with visits to world-famous centres of design in South East Asia and the UK.
- Participate in an industry internship programme that offers real-life industry practice and the opportunity to develop a professional network.
The first-year challenges students to explore diverse approaches to design problems and apply their creative skills in different ways. It will also challenge any preconceptions that students may have about Interior Design. During the first year, students will also learn many of the essential skills needed to work in Interior Design.
- Interior Design Space, Form and Architecture
- Interior Design People and Place
- Building Construction & Materials (Elective)
- Green Design (Elective)
In the second year, design projects are often company-sponsored and involve working directly with the client (live projects). The subjects will help students to meet this challenge and develop their skills and knowledge to a professional level. Other projects involve working to a national or international design brief. In this case, students need to demonstrate the ability to communicate their design ideas professionally, using a variety of media and techniques.
- Building By-Law (Malaysia)
- Interior Design Application
- Interior Design Context
An International Study Tour will be scheduled in Year 2.
Through a process of research and discussion with academic staff, students determine a body of self-directed study that allows them to develop a personal area of interest related to the field of Interior Design. By taking increased responsibility for the management of their own work, students are prepared for life as a professional designer.
The number and content of the projects students undertake in the third year can be negotiated. However, the academic team will offer advice that enables students to develop a portfolio that best supports their career aspirations. It is also essential that students support their dissertations and design projects with a body of thorough and convincing research and development.

Studio-based learning enables students to develop creative and technical skills. They will work both collaboratively and individually while taking part in small group tutorials in a studio environment.
Students will have opportunities to visit design consultancies, industrial facilities, museums and exhibitions. These visits contribute to the development of a deeper contextual and industrial understanding of interior design, with direct links to studio-based projects or theoretical studies.
Students will also continue building an understanding of the design industry by working with clients and industry professionals on 'live projects', mirroring the employment experience. These commercial projects will also help students understand the business context of design, preparing them for a career.
