Course content

Graduate Diploma in Interior Design at Chelsea College of Arts is a full time, one year programme. This course provides students with the skills and experience required for a career in the field of interior design, or further study at MA level.

Content

What students can expect:

- To develop a flexible, open-minded approach to thinking about interior design or critically engaging with contemporary design approaches

- To connect with interior design in a variety of ways such as designing, writing, visual communication and research

- To explore the possibility of making narratives from interior design

- To develop an open way of thinking about interior design, and give students the opportunity to critically engage with contemporary design approaches

- To design small-scale interiors and explore new opportunities within existing architectural spaces

- To be assigned a personal tutor who supports your development

Structure

The course runs over a total of 30 weeks and offers a combination of taught study, self-directed negotiated study, personal research and written assignments. There are also two major practical projects undertaken during the year and each is the subject of a book.

The course is studio based and delivered in three units of study:

Unit 1 - Commodity and Design

This is a design programme that explores a small-scale domestic interior. This project focuses on how the client / user can be given a new opportunity to perform within a space and the various methods students have to envisage and communicate this opportunity.

Unit 2 - Negotiated Design Programme

In this unit students are expected to initiate a design project. They will choose a location, make an analysis of an interior and establish a design brief for a new programme of habitation. Students are asked to find a context in the public realm rather than the domestic one, and are expected to reflect upon and discuss how habitation is improved by their contribution.

Unit 3 - Professional Context

This unit is concerned with critical reflection upon professional practice and creative processes. Students will learn about professional communication within the practice of interior design, and specifically the writing requirements of an interior designer when they are reflecting upon and communicating their design proposals. This will prepare students for professional practice and support the critical position of their design proposals.

Work experience and opportunities

During the year students are involved in live projects. One of these, the making of a Christmas-themed installation for a highly regarded hotel in Westminster, has become an annual event.
