About The Course
Our 4 year BA(HONS) in Interior Design takes you through fundamentals of visual culture, building science and design principles and equips you with the practical studio skills. You’ll be brought from initiation through to successful completion, becoming a graduate who can create, design, problem solve and act professionally in all related working environments. This degree is available as a full-time programme. At the end of the 4 years, you will be industry ready, creatively and technically equipped to propose innovative solutions and problem-solving expertise within the built environment.
This Interior Architecture course has been created with consultation from industry professionals, and lecturers include practising designers, architects, and subject specialists. Amended in 2013 to current best practice within the industry and approved by QQI, the programme now includes Revit, AutoCad 3-D, AutoCAD, as well as traditional communication tools such as model making and free-hand drawing.
The quality of our students’ work has been recognised throughout the interior design and architecture industry in both awards and exhibitions.
The Institute of Designers in Ireland (IDI) recognises the BA in Interior Design (Level 7) and the Griffith College Dublin Diploma in Interior Design.
During the course you’ll be taught by practising architects, designers, buyers, and art historians, ensuring that the faculty maintains strong industry links. Our courses are regularly reviewed by industry professionals to ensure we are meeting the current needs of the industry and following best practice. Professionals from the fashion industry are regularly invited to give guest lectures, and in our award years, participate in critiquing student work.
Interior Design Internships
Design students have also internships with HJ Lyons and Jonathan Adler N.Y.C. to name just a few.
Experiential learning is an important part of our courses, therefore most modules have class trips as a part of their curriculum. Every year the faculty travels internationally and nationally to places with both current and historical interior design importance. Previous trips have included London, Rome, Milan, Berlin, Paris, Bilbao, Barcelona, and Venice.
A key date in our calendar is the annual Creative Week showcase. This showcase gives graduates of Interior Design a platform to present their work alongside those of media, journalism, computing, film, and photography. Not only will this exhibit give you the experience of showcasing to industry standards, but it allows for extensive PR and networking opportunities.
