Interior Architecture

Our Interior Architecture degree with embedded honours offers the highest undergraduate Australian qualification for the Interior Design industry. Through this degree you will explore human experience as central to interior architecture, particularly as the information age generates significant change to the design of schools, workplaces, retail properties, residential spaces and more, including the adaptive re-use of old buildings.

We understand our students to be future thinkers who will learn to think differently and become responsive designers, building design knowledge and accessing relevant skills to progress their agile and dynamic careers.

From your first year your experiences in this course will be enriched by close collaborations with exciting, highly regarded local and global practitioners. In this internationally networked realm of design, you will be challenged by real world problems and mentored by experienced practitioners and academics.

Numerous ‘work ready’ experiences are available, including opportunities to undertake international internships. From 2017 Interior Architecture has enabled students to study overseas at one of our partner organisations with support from the SIDA (Society Interior Designers of Australia) Foundation’s International Exchange scholarship program.

Before graduating from this degree, you will need to undertake a minimum of 10 days’ discipline-related work experience.
