Overview

The Interior Design from London Metropolitan University is one of several postgraduate design courses that co-exist at our School of Art, Architecture and Design, offering rich opportunities for the collaborative multidisciplinary approach that is a feature of the current and future design sector and a requirement for success in the field.

The overall theme and content of the course is intended to encourage independent design thinking in the field of the interior. In this respect, the curriculum focuses in an advanced and systematic way on aspects of the profession and practice. Design and research for design occupies a large proportion of the course and the process of design is rehearsed through the vehicle of project work. There is an emphasis upon putting you in a real, complex and ambiguous context for project work, with many more parameters that cover social, political and economic contexts as well as the physical context.

Modules and projects are delivered within a design studio unit that sets a theme for your design work over the academic year, which creates a collaborative working model. The studio runs projects in a range of research interests, sites, building types, cultural and theoretical contexts. The School's Interiors cluster shares a commitment to contemporary design and its global and local contexts, a passion for building, and desire to test the premises of the interior, theoretically as well as practically.

The course addresses the needs of graduates from interior, spatial and architectural backgrounds where traditional roles are increasingly blurred and design skills may be needed in a variety of guises. It emphasises generic and transferable skills in design of the built environment, and locates the subject in this broader context to encourage you to seek and create opportunities for the practice of their discipline.

Where this course can take you

Recent studies show that globally, the growth of creative and cultural industries is more than twice the rate of the world economy. The creative industry in the UK is huge and about half of all those involved in the design sector work in London. London supports one of the highest concentrations of designers and design related businesses in the world and our unique location offers many opportunities for students and professionals to showcase cutting-edge design.

Typical career opportunities include work as design consultants, design directors in interior design or architectural practitioner as spatial designers.

Our alumni work internationally for all sectors of design, such as branding, retail design, exhibition design, residential design, digital design and environmental design. We have alumni who have gone on to work at Norman Foster and Partners, Bill Dunster Architects, Orbit Architects, Orange and United Designers. Career paths in the cultural industries, design journalism, education and marketing are also open on completion of the course.
