"In our first year, we can explore all three disciplines of 3D Design before choosing Spatial and Interior Designer."

BA Honours 3D Design: Spatial & Interior Designer
encourages inventiveness and experimentation through the creation of spatial environments both internal & external.
The course provides students with a means of investigating and increasing their understanding of the man-made environment whilst giving insight into shaping the future.
The curriculum crosses the boundaries between public realm design, place making, urban landscape, ecological design, design for performance, interior architecture & interior design.

Our brand of Spatial Design ...
... reflects the emerging connections in the practice of spatial design, crossing the boundaries of interiors, architecture, landscape, ethics, art, engineering, furniture and lighting schemes.
We challenge you to be innovative, develop new connections and possibilities between materials, structures, furniture, objects and their manufacturing processes.
Our projects are run with 'Life' client project briefs, with advice and scrutineering from outside professionals.
And we have fun doing it!

Furniture & Interiors is:
You are taught in a vibrant Open Studio environment to develop creative thinking to find the best aesthetic and functional characteristics of a scheme.

Becoming a Spatial Designer
We teach you skills to develop and create innovative, practical and contemporary spaces.
You learn this through gaining a hands-on understanding of material, processes, construction and model making methods.
By developing your own robust ideology, you can gain confidence to develop ground breaking concepts, backed by high levels of CAD visualisation skills.
Graduates from our course are working at major design consultancies like Foster & Partners, as in-house designers, doing teacher training and postgraduate research.

"It uniquely blends interior design, architecture, art, and engineering. Great for our employability!
