    Think about what you'd like to do in the future in terms of jobs or career and then search online to find out what career paths are available to get there. That should give you an idea.

    Hi there,

    What about a combination of both in one course? At BCU we offer Interior Architecture and Design BA (Hons), so rather than just being about the interior aesthetics you'll learn about materiality, how to adapt space of existing buildings and meet human needs.

    This is a new course but you can sign up for updates and more details such as modules and fees on our website here.

    All the best!

    That course isn't approved and has no industry accreditation.

    It isn't an architecture degree.

    Interior architecture and architecture are two distinct subjects and degree areas. Completing an interior architecture degree would not allow a graduate to advertise their services as an architect.

    Someone qualified as an architect could quite easily specialise or gain CPD qualifications and experience in interior design. But qualifying as an architect takes 7 years.

    http://www.sbid.org/accreditation/wh...a-designer-do/ would be worth reading around - they support all of the different industry sectors you're considering and explain some of the common routes into those jobs.

    Plus they have a list of universities offering approved degrees in interior design/interior architecture http://www.sbid.org/education/12977-2/
