The course embraces the truth that true creative spirit is born out of a radical review of the interior design process. This course provides the opportunity for interior designers to further develop their creative values, processes and practices. This taught programme addresses topical design issues and trends. There is a blend of design theory and practice, combined with critical thinking within the creative and managerial process. This questions the existing boundaries of interior design, pushing the international platform for the profession forwards into new and versatile directions.
A good quality degree in interior design or a closely related three dimensional design discipline, or equivalent qualifications. Applications from European or International mature students (+21) with alternative qualifications and/or substantial work experience are considered on their merits/portfolio. Advanced English skills are essential as this is a taught MA and all project work requires accurate and appropriate communication in English language. Non-English speakers ideally should have IELTS 6.0 (reading, speaking and writing). However, applicants may apply with lower IELTS if they successfully participate in the BCU Pre-sessional English Language courses that are delivered just before the main programme begins. As a minimum, applicants should have a portfolio demonstrating their critical thinking, technical abilities and creative process in a range of media.
Modules include: Design systems; design culture; design futures; personal project: research; personal project: practice; personal project: communication.
Informal reflection and debate are at the heart of the seminars and group tutorials where peer reviews, active learning exercises and self-appraisal help our students to shape their assignments towards self-determined outcomes. Project work is always professionally presented and will be assessed formally by a team made up of internal and external experts and academics.
