Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Interior Design

PROGRAMME 
OVERVIEW

The Glasgow School of Art

Bachelor of Arts with Honours in
Interior Design

Interior Design involves the creation of imaginative and stimulating environments in specific places — often within existing buildings. The revitalisation, reuse and re-imagining of the latter requires a sensitivity to the particular qualities of a site and host building, along with an understanding of the needs of the people who will populate it. In proposing fresh ways people might use a building, a skilled interior designer is able to creatively embrace the constraints of brief and context, engaging in a dialogue between existing architectural form, and contemporary approaches to the organisation, detailing, and decoration of a space.

Intelligent interior design is a key contributor to an improved quality of life, and it helps generate business success. It has an established professional structure which allows graduates the opportunity to gain invaluable experience at various levels of responsibility before choosing to set up in independent practice or take leading roles in established studios.

The majority of graduates work in the UK - a global centre for interior design - either for major companies including BKD, Brinkworth, Fitch, Foster and Partners, Graven, Gensler, Imagination, Landor Associates and Universal Design Studio, or independent, self-founded studios such as NOMAD. A significant percentage work overseas in Australia, China, France, Italy, Ireland, Japan, The Netherlands, Norway and Spain.

All GSA degree programmes are validated by University of Glasgow, a member of the prestigious Russell Group of leading UK research universities and a founder member of Universitas 21, an international grouping of universities dedicated to setting worldwide standards for higher education.
