BA (Hons) Interior Design

If you’re interested in art, architecture and interiors, as well as in people, this well-established Interior Design course will prepare you for a career in this growing and competitive industry.

Live projects are a key feature of this interior design course, and thanks to excellent links, our students’ work is regularly selected and used by partner companies. Some of our recent briefs have been for clients such as Interaction; Paramount Interiors; HLM Architects and Stride Treglown Architects.

Starting with the principles of interior design, you’ll progress to larger projects, explore spatial design and specialise in the remodelling of existing buildings for new use.

Studying interior design in Cardiff, you’ll be a part of our inspiring community and have the chance to collaborate with other creative industries students such as artists, photographers, designers, writers and musicians.
