This career-orientated higher education program combines both the practical and theory-based aspects of design. The Bachelor of Design (Interior Design) has been developed by experts with extensive interior design experience. It places emphasis on design in the real world.
This three-year professional degree will prepare graduates for employment in the interior design industry in Australia and overseas.
The degree will be delivered at the Design Centre Enmore, one of the best design schools in Australia. Our students and graduates regularly win national and international prizes and are employed at some of Australia's most successful design companies.
You will learn and apply the skills and knowledge required to function as an effective creative design practitioner. You will learn how to:
- generate innovative and original interior design concepts
- identify and explore the spatial, structural and material elements of interior environments
- develop an understanding of the interaction between people and spaces

During the final year of study, students will undertake an internship in a professional interior design practice. This internship will account for a single subject in assessment and is a compulsory subject.
In certain agreed circumstances, where students are already working in industry or a suitable internship cannot be found one (previously unselected) elective may be chosen from DSEL201A Design for sustainability, DSEL202A Total experience design, and IDEL203A Lighting interior environments, as an alternative.
The degree has been developed to ensure you develop technical familiarity with all aspects of interior design. There are also 10 core subjects that are fundamental to all aspects of creative design. You will also be able to select electives from other design disciplines.
Each subject equates to 10 credit points. Students require a total of 240 credit points to complete the qualification.
