It involves an exciting range of projects embracing commercial, social and temporary projects such as workspaces, hotels, retail, museums, exhibitions, and health and educational spaces. This Interior Design BA will introduce you to the latest research as well as industry professionals who will bring their knowledge and experience to the course.<br/><br/>Your first year – through an active and holistic learning and teaching programme – is designed to develop your thinking, key skills and understanding of the industry and related practice, allowing you to produce a portfolio and discover your career aspirations through explorative approaches. You’ll explore sketching, drawing, sketch-modelling and the production of scaled accurate models through workshop practice and orthographic techniques, with digital software also used to strengthen your ideas and skills. This will guide you into your second year where we ask you to choose a studio in which to cultivate your design philosophy, sector specialisms and professional skills. The course also offers an opportunity to work within the industry and gain real life work experience with an interior design company, which is assessed as part of your degree. We then build on this in the third year and advance your individuality and expertise through both studio specialisms and a mentoring scheme leading you towards successful employment.<br/><br/>**What our students say**<br/><br/>Returning to education after 20 years with limited computer skills was not an easy journey. But London Met, alongside its inspirational teaching, has given me the ability to soar... <br/>Cavell Browne Richardson<br/><br/>The journey I have made has been immense, significant and challenging, but most of all life-changing. Completing my degree will be the start of a new chapter in my life, built on the foundation of London Met. <br/>Beata Piotrzkowska<br/><br/>In the second year I had the pleasure of winning an internship with Fitch and in the third year to be nominated for the D&AD Pencil Awards. The mentoring offered a great opportunity to connect with people from the industry and helped me to get a job. The final year exhibitions helped give my portfolio more exposure and many positive responses. <br/>Anna Czarnowska<br/><br/>We were working across so many projects, but I found it wasn’t just about your skill, at Jestico + Wiles its developing lots and lots of ideas too. What was the most fascinating was working with a huge range of materials. It’s a really interesting and important aspect of design that I didn’t understand before, getting to know the kinds of materials you can work with influences your choices in design.” <br/>Yasemen Gokce, on her second year work placement at Jestico + Wiles
