DESCRIPTION

Interior Design has never been so popular. Interior spaces are where people spend the greatest proportion of their time. Interior Design is a rewarding profession allowing the designer the opportunity to enhance people’s everyday lives by creating new environments in which they work, live and play.
The course has a good atmosphere where creativity is nurtured and students and staff enjoy an excellent working relationship. Interaction between students from other design courses is strongly supported through the use of some common projects, social events and educational visits.
The course team embodies a broad range of recent professional and academic experience. They are keen to promote students’ experimentation with conceptual space underpinned with the knowledge of current professional practice. Staff philosophy is supported by their research and involvement in current interior design.

Programme of Study
The BA(Hons) Interior Design course at AAS provides a unique programme of study with the interaction of design and technology through the creative process and imaginative use of materials. Offering more than just decorative solutions, interior design is a broad based professional discipline.
The course encourages students to consider challenges interior designers face in a range of engaging dynamic thematic areas, which include retail, the workplace, leisure and entertainment and life styles of the future. Central to all years of study are design modules that provide the framework to explore real and imagined projects. These projects are commercially based in urban environments. Underpinning the projects are the theoretical, historical, technical and essential skills required to enable students work in an informed and professional manner.
