As climate change and a range of ethical considerations forces us to address the true cost of new buildings, you'll practise sustainable interior design through creative re-use of existing structures.

As part of your course, you’ll:

  • Study in a well-equipped studio environment and award-winning building in the vibrant city of Leeds
  • Use traditional art and design inspiration and processes, along with digital media, to sculpt, draw and model innovative interior architecture
  • Develop your place-making talents to shape sensory, emotive and tactile contemporary interior landscapes
  • Complete design projects in response to human issues, live briefs and external clients
  • Become an imaginative, ethical designer at the forefront of interior architecture and design practice and be supported in your individual aspirations and creativity
  • Showcase your design talents to the public and impress industry professionals by exhibiting your work at the end of your final year

You’ll be taught by experienced practitioners whose backgrounds are in top architecture and design industry consultancies and practices. Live projects will give you the opportunity to engage with real clients, user groups, experts, practising designers and architects.

You can find out more about our teaching staff on our Meet the Team blog. We have also produced a blog and podcast that offer advice on preparing your portfolio for the application process.

IAD community support network
We have an effective IAD community support network and peer-to-peer support sessions which have been particularly beneficial during lockdown. You’ll have access to evening events free of charge that include a range of social activities to support all of our students’ mental health and wellbeing during this time.

Our alumni community
We have a strong IAD Alumni Community, and pride ourselves on the connections we have with our graduates. Our annual Professional Practice lectures explore the careers of graduates who have gone on to work in some of the most highly regarded design studios. These events are very well attended by both our students and alumni, so you’ll be introduced and embedded into a strong employment network.

Our mentorship scheme
‘M’ is our IAD mentorship scheme, which pairs our final year students with practising designers and alumni who can offer professional guidance when entering the workplace.
