Bachelor of Interior Design

Qualification of Interior Design
Academic year: 2019-20
Field of Study: Architecture
Study load: 180

The impact of our interiors on the quality of our life is remarkable. It goes without saying that a snug, safe, pleasant and tailored living and working environment has now become a basic need. The interior design course produces professionals who can make an analysis of these needs and can translate these into a high-quality, functional and esthetic design. The study programme focuses on a high level of flexibility which the interior designer needs to deploy in order to meet the ever-changing demands in the areas of architecture, interior, art, culture, design, ... In addition to displaying technical insight and initiative, the young graduate must, first and foremost, excel in creativity, imagination, empathy and personality and have an eye for changing trends. To this end, a wide, practice-based study programme is offered with a strong level of coaching and support so that students can make choices and develop their own style in interior design. Starting from specific topics and projects, students learn to draw up lists of requirements, make a visual and technical analysis, compile a complete dossier and communicate on the same: from draft sketch, preliminary draft and final draft, right through to implementing documents and inspection of the implementation of their drafts. The bachelor project and work placement in the final academic year allow the students to further develop as professional interior designers. For a whole year, they will be invited to flesh out a chosen interior design area, topic and subject, and thus acquire competences with a highly practical relevance that will enable them to make the transition to the workplace.
