RMIT offers three programs centred on the design of interior spaces. Here's a brief overview to help you choose what's right for you.
The Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours) is a four-year degree positioned as an idea-led design discipline. It explores the potential and future of interior design as a practice concerned with the spatial and temporal relations between people and the surrounding environment. Students investigate how the design of interiors is not confined to simply the inside of a building, but ranges from the intimacy of a finely crafted object to the urban fabric of a city.
Working in the interstices between people and spaces, the Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours) students develop a sophisticated level of sensitivity and sensibility to imagine and project the experiential and phenomenal qualities of the interior. Graduates find employment in interior design and architectural practices.
The Associate Degree in Interior Decoration and Design and the Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration are both two-year qualifications that focus on skills development and application to interior design and decoration projects, both residential and commercial.
With a focus on space creation and planning, graduates have a high level of knowledge in the areas of textiles, soft and hard finishes and their applications and sustainability, and project documentation, along with the ability to visually communicate to clients and other stakeholders.
