Objectives of the Intensive Interior & Retail Design

The Intensive Interior & Retail Design Course is designed for those interested in the world of designing spaces used by people. The programme combines theory and practice and is divided into several phases of study, ranging from design method to in-depth examination of construction techniques. An ongoing practical workshop lasts throughout the course and culminates in the completion of a full interior design project.

On this industry-focussed programme, participants will explore various different expressions of contemporary living. In order to do this, they will first acquire the design and management skills used in the creative process. They will then master the choice of production techniques and technologies and be able to present project ideas using advanced communication tools. Finally, they will acquire the knowledge to be able to create contemporary interior architecture that enhances the unique distinctive features of each space.

Participants will be supported in their creative development under the guidance of expert teachers who have a wealth of knowledge and experience within interior design. They will be encouraged in experimentation and innovation and will have access to a wide range of activities such as workshops, visits, seminars, networking opportunities and sector events.
