Study type Taught


Our MA Interior Architecture and Design degree looks at the relationship between ‘interior design’ and ‘interior architecture’. Although there’s currently a divide between each discipline, we feel the opportunity exists to fuse together the most influential elements of both. In other words, the creativity, process and thinking of designers; with the science, knowledge, and pragmatism of architecture.

The course is aimed at students from art, design and architectural backgrounds. It offers a range of studio projects, specialist subjects and cross-disciplinary theoretical courses. Ultimately, it’ll give you the chance to develop your own project, along with concepts that test and challenge perceived norms.
