Content

The BDes (Hons) Interior and Spatial Design programme is taught by expert practitioners in Edinburgh's vibrant interior design, exhibition and lighting design industries, producing graduates with a profound understanding of real projects, real clients and real materials.

Underpinned by a studio culture designed to foster collaboration and peer learning, this course offers you the opportunity to undertake live projects with clients such as the National Museum of Scotland, engage with internationally recognised practices for work placements, go on international exchange with partner institutions in countries including Australia, Canada and China, and to immerse yourself in study trips to leading centres of design such as Berlin, Copenhagen and Lisbon.

You'll design interior and exterior spaces relating to a wide range of themes including social (e.g. schools, hospitals, libraries), commercial (e.g. retail, leisure, offices) and the arts (e.g. theatres, museums, galleries).

The primary focus is to allow you to develop a sophisticated design language and an understanding of the relationship between space, form, structure and materials within the context of building purpose, the end-user and the wider environment.
