Interior Design BA (Hons) at Northumbria University is a commercial interior design course focusing on designing innovative interiors within new architecture and via the adaptive reuse of existing buildings.

Design projects will cover all aspects of the interiors industry including leisure – such as bars, restaurants and nightclubs – hospitality and hotels, retail, exhibition, workplace, education, museums and public space design.

Projects explore complex architectural intervention down to the finer detail of commercial interior design practice, supported by the study of design history, theory and the wider social context, which we as designers both draw from and help shape.

The subject is explored via investigations into existing site and architecture, function, materials, brand, tactility, space, form and user occupancy, experience and interaction.

Your skills are developed in both hand techniques and digital methods including technical drawings, 3D visualisation, sketching and model-making.

We have excellent employability results for our graduating students and our unique relationships with national and international collaborators allow students to work on real-life project briefs with companies and institutions such as Bauhaus Dessau, Gensler, MillerKnoll, Checkland Kindleysides and Dalziel + Pow.

Our on-campus, studio-based course is an affiliated member of Interior Educators, representing established UK degree programmes in interiors education.

Applications to this course have now closed.
