What universities are best for studying interior design?

I am a second year BA Interior Design student at Bath Spa University, but I am looking for another university to apply to for my final year as I am not happy with the course that BSU is offering. I am trying to find out what other universities in England offer some valuable interior design courses (possibly not the top ones like the Royal College of Art or UAL, as I don't think they would accept me). Any suggestions?

Did you find another uni to go to as I was thinking of going to bath spa for this course? What made you not like it as would you not recommend? X
The 4 SBID centres of excellence are AUB, Coventry, Solent and Teesside.

Hi there!

We can’t speak for Bath Spa, but thought we’d talk you through some of the key points about our interior Architecture and Design course here at AUB. As mentioned, we’re one of four of the Society of British and International Interior Designers Centres of Excellence [https://www.sbid.org/sbid-centre-of-excellence/], meaning we’re well-known and respected in the sector.

Employability is super important to us, so we work closely with organisations on live briefs. We pride ourselves on our success in promoting work experience for students and graduates; the variety of positions that the students achieve is a reflection of the philosophy of the course, namely that the study of Interior Architecture and Design is broad, dynamic and exciting and allows you, the student, to work to your strengths and follow the path that is best suited to you. We now also offer an optional placement year to give you experience in industry.

Finding the right course for you should depend on the kind of interior design that interests you the most. Our graduates work in all kinds of spaces, from super yachts to hospitals, and we believe in helping you find your passion. Sustainability is also increasingly at the heart of what we do, reflecting broader trends in industry. We also embrace technology, both in the digital space (CAD, VR etc.) and the physical (modelmaking, 3D printing etc.). Really, we want to prepare you as well as possible for the world after graduation and the changing landscape of the industry.

If there’s anything more you’d like to know, we’d be happy to answer over here or put you in touch with the course team or our Admissions team.

Hope this helps,
AUB ☀️

I think a good way to see what course is best for you is to see what is covered within them as all universities offer different modules etc. See what your interests are and what universities course is best for those interests and future aspirations of yours. I know people at the university who love it, but again, the courses vary content to courses under the same title at other unis!
