Year in


Ben Salter,
Course Leader

The Interior Design course enables students to develop their own unique perspective and personal approach to design thinking as a way of addressing contemporary social challenges. Interior design defines so much of our daily experiences; it enables us to live the lives we wish to lead whilst embodying our collective ambitions.


This year’s degree projects vary in scale and scope, from the most intimate to the most public. The key themes of wellbeing, inclusion and sustainable practice underpin the student’s approach to responsible design.

The creative opportunities that have been developed afford space to explore and challenge preconceptions, to propose new ideas for the spaces we inhabit. Collectively this year’s degree projects encompass 21st century crafts, material innovation, contemporary construction, user experience and adaptive reuse.


From the evolution of workplace and education spaces to a growing awareness of urban wellbeing, all projects not only represent the student’s ambitions but also a desire to use their design skills to affect positive change.

Course community

This year’s graduating cohort have been exceptionally supportive of each other, whilst cultivating their own unique career aspirations. They have had a significant impact on the course community, not only in supporting each other, but by helping and inspiring other year groups. We look forward to following their successes.
