The spaces where we shop, drink, eat, sleep and work – each of them has to be designed to ensure that they are fit for their purpose. This course aims to get you thinking about the functional and aesthetic potential of our interior environments. We encourage you to think about just what's possible, and how you can make the most of any space.
Interior Design transforms ideas into experiences. And we'll give you the opportunity to be able to create entirely new experiences and relationships between people and the places they spend time in. The emphasis is on creativity, as we explore current design thinking and push the boundaries to come up with new ways of looking at things and transforming our environments.
We also focus on the practical side of things, with the aim of helping you to prepare for a career in interior design. So we'll give you the chance to get involved in a range of projects set by some of the country's leading interior and architectural practices. It's going to be challenging, but it will be engaging and inspiring too.
To give you the best chance to succeed, we'll aim to give you a thorough grounding in all the technical demands of construction detailing and specification. So you're not just thinking about the creative potential of an interior space, you know the practical possibilities too.
Whenever possible we'll get you out into the real world, taking you on field trips to see what professional interior designers have achieved. You'll also have the chance to take a placement year, working in a business such as a professional interior design practice. It will give you the chance to gain hands-on experience, build up your professional portfolio and develop real-world skills. You'll have the chance to gain a real insight into the industry during your placement year, and gain the experiences you need to have the best chance to become a professional in your chosen career.

Application deadline details:
Huddersfield was a challenging and fun experience for me. The lecturers really inspired me to think creatively and forced me to consider new perspectives. The city life is ok, there’s not tonnes of clubbing but you can always hop on the train to Leeds or Manchester for a mad one. I prefer to hang out in the pub after lectures, anyway. There are loads of great facilities here too, the library is particularly amazing. The careers service is also incredibly helpful, I walked straight into a job after graduation!
