BA (Hons) in Interior Architecture and Design add-on (Online)

This is a one-year add-on L8 Honours Degree. The major focus of both semesters is a major (yearlong) Thesis Design Project of the student’s choice that consolidates and showcases their design skills. In supporting modules, students strengthen their professional knowledge, explore their interests and refine their graduate portfolio in preparation for practice.

Programme/Course Structure

Design Studio is at the heart of the course. All students participate in interactive design discussions with peers and lecturers, enjoying the encouragement of small study groups and a supportive studio culture.

In Design Project VII & VIII, a yearlong design thesis project of the individual student’s choice forms half of the overall programme. Here, the student consolidates their design, communication and technical skills in one major design project.

In Research for Design and the Arts I & II students research a personal design interest in depth, further enhancing their Thesis Design. Reflective Portfolio and Professional Studies for Interior Architects prepare the student for practice. All applicants should contact Rowan Watson at for further information.
