This Higher Education course is designed to expand students’ creative, analytical and technical skills and to prepare them for employment or self-employment in the profession of Interior Design. The course equips students to meet the increasing demand for well trained designers with strong design flair and sound technical and managerial knowledge. Design projects are exploratory, experimental and large in scale and students are expected to work independently on own projects while being provided with on going design support through regular tutorials. There is the opportunity for students to gain a genuine understanding of both design and management principles. A group exhibition will take place during the summer term. At interview students will need to show a strong portfolio of work in their specialist area. This course is equivalent to a first year BA course and leads to a BTEC Higher National Certificate qualification.
