The MA Interior Design course has been developed as a coherent part of the School of Art, Design and Fashion Masters Programmes and shares the same values and philosophies that unite them. The same course is delivered at AAS College, franchise partner of the British University of Central Lancashire.

The focus of the MA Interior Design course is rooted in ‘creative practice’. As a postgraduate student, you will be able to form a uniquely individual, tailor made programme of study. You may choose to work either within an established area of contemporary interior design practice or explore the potential for design diversity.

In the second semester you may choose to undertake field studies and take a more outward looking focus and more rigorous validation of their ideas through professional networking or even external placement.

By the end of the course all students should have completed a cohesive body of creative work to a professional standard and be able to clearly articulate a sound intellectual rationale and broad critical viewpoint.

Career Opportunities

The MA will further career opportunities within commercial design practice.   Research has shown that graduates who have undertaken some form of work experience are significantly more likely to be in employment than those who have had no work experience.  The MA is, however, not seen as wholly vocational as it also recognises the value of personal development, satisfaction, and enlightenment.
