Our Interior Architecture MA at the University of Westminster promotes a speculative approach to spatial design that is rooted in theory and the world of ideas. Those ideas, however, are deployed to confront contemporary questions and challenges.

This MA  Interior Architecture MA at the University of Westminster , therefore, is both conceptual and pragmatic; experimental and rigorous. With a special focus on people and place, the course will encourage you to develop a deep sympathy for the needs and aspirations of the users of a space, as well as a sensitivity towards (and response to) physical and social contexts.   

Located within the School of Architecture and Cities in central London, you’ll be taught and guided by research-active and industry-experienced staff. Increasingly international, and ever growing, our sought-after Master's course offers you the opportunity to develop your own pathway and focus on a contemporary issue of special importance to you.


  • The broad range of skills taught on the Interior Architecture MA has enabled our graduates to either strengthen or change their career paths. We strive to encourage our students to develop their professional interests while studying with us to allow them to build a portfolio of work that they can then use to find appropriate work in the sector once they graduate. As a result, the course has helped many students to relaunch their careers after graduation. Former graduates of this course practice in a variety of areas of design. These include interior architecture, retail design, exhibition design, set and lighting design, product design, and interior conservation, as well as multidisciplinary and traditional architectural and design practice. Our MA may also form a platform for continuing study with a career in academia or research. 

    For students who take the course and are interested in further study, we offer suitable applicants the opportunity to study for an MPhil/PhD degree, not only through the traditional research mode, but also through a PhD by design route.
