Recognised by the SBID and the ECIA as being one of the leading courses in the UK and Europe.

Through the adaptive re-use, re-branding, re-modelling, re-cycling and re-communication of existing spaces, structures and environments this course will offer you the skills, knowledge and work experience you need to become a leader in one of the most dynamic, creative, economically valuable and diverse areas of design.

Often working with real clients on real design projects in a studio-based and professionally-focussed learning environment the course will teach you to understand the three-dimensional potential, the atmosphere and the identity of the spaces in which we live, work, rest and play.

Course programme

To accomplish this we look at all areas of interior architecture (the remodeling of existing spaces) and interior design (the creation of atmosphere and identity) through the placement of objects, manipulation of space, colour, texture, lighting and structure. We do not draw a distinction between interior ‘design’ and interior ‘architecture’ – but we are not an interior decoration course.

BA (Hons) Interior Architecture and Design at the Arts University at Bournemouth is recognised by the Society of British Interior Design (SBID) and is also a member of the Interior Educators Group (IE Group).

Study is divided across taught hours, studio and/or work environment time, and independent study. Excellent professional and technical support is available and students are encouraged to experiment and work collaboratively on self-initiated projects. We expect students to spend an average of 40 hours per week on their studies, although it is likely that these hours will vary throughout the academic year.
