One-Year/ Semester Courses - Interior Design

Tuition fee €15,000.00 per programme


One-Year / Semester Course

This program focuses on the interior spaces of building, emphasizing the physical, psychological and social needs of people at work and leisure.

In order to create appropriate and inspiring interior environments, interior
 designers must understand their clients’ interaction within society and be
 capable of translating this understanding into designs. In practice, they
 develop projects for the whole spectrum of human activities, designing
 offices, shops, restaurants, resorts, hospitals, schools, residential interiors.
In preparation for this wide range of design opportunities, our students will
 be introduced to academic grounding in problem-solving, formal design
 skills, and pertinent historical and technical knowledge. Each level of the
 student’s education engages knowledge and skills in problem discovery
 and resolution, critical and imaginative thinking, communication, and
Students will develop a deep understanding of how human beings inhabit
 and experience spaces, and become fluent in the expression of the
 elements and principles of interior design: point, line, shape, form, color,
 light, texture, time, rhythm, balance, scale, proportion, harmony, and unity.
Interior Design is a competitive field, and your portfolio is crucial. Students
 are encouraged to present a graduation portfolio that combines different
 media: a traditional portfolio and a CD-ROM, a video or web page version.
