Subject

Interior design and architecture

Learn to think about the spaces where we live, work and play. Come up with exciting solutions to create and modify them. We’ll turn your aspirations into the skills and knowledge you need to work as a professional interior designer in a dynamic industry.
This course will help you develop your creativity, and discover new ways to think and communicate your ideas, turning your aspirations into the skills, processes and knowledge needed in professional practice.

Guided by industry specialists and practitioners, you’ll study the theory behind interior design and gain project management skills, both of which will help you meet, and adapt to, the changing demands of the industry.

At Cambridge School of Art, our students have plenty of opportunities to explore the creative processes that underpin their practical and technical skills. We value your creativity and, with our optional modules, encourage you to collaborate with students from other art and design disciplines, such as fine art, fashion and film. This will let you delve deeper into your interests, or try out subjects you’ve never even considered.

Your final year will prepare you for professional life. You’ll identify and develop your specialism, and produce a body of work that forms the basis of your interview portfolio. The connections you make through networking opportunities will help you to find the right place to begin your career.

You’ll emerge from the course with a developed skill set, clear visual communication abilities, and an understanding of how you’ll fit into the interior design industry.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Want to work in a growing, creative sector where we are a world leader? Welcome to design! The UK has a proud reputation as a centre of design excellence, and last year just over 14,000 design degrees were awarded. At the moment, the jobs market looks a little better for fashion and textile designers, and not as good for multimedia or interactive designers — but that may change by the time you graduate. In general, design graduates are more likely than most to start their career in London, although that also varies by subject — last year fashion designers often found jobs in the North West, graphic designers in the South West, illustrators in the South West, East Anglia and Midlands, textile designers in the Midlands and the North West, and visual designers in Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Midlands. Design is also a good degree for people who want to work for a small business - more than half of graduates start at a small employer.

The Longitudinal Educational Outcomes dataset combines HRMC earnings data with student records from the Higher Education Statistics Agency.

While there are lots of factors at play when it comes to your future earnings, use this as a rough timeline of what graduates in this subject area were earning on average one, three and five years later. Can you see a steady increase in salary, or did grads need some experience under their belt before seeing a nice bump up in their pay packet?
