The Master of Interior Design will provide you with a diverse range of learning experiences, combining learning through designing, doing and making, experimentation, self-directed research, analysis, reflection and discussion with peer and industry interactions.
Design studio-based learning sits at the core of this course, and is supported by workshops, excursions, collaborative projects and interactive class activities. The studios are viewed as intensive design laboratories in which academics, professional partners and students develop creative strategies, innovative approaches and unique responses to contemporary interior design issues. Studios are organised as a series of workshops, master classes, tutorials, presentations, intensive symposia, travel intensives and exhibitions.
You will learn how to constructively critique your own work and that of others. Project proposals and presentations will be directly related to industry-specific needs, and will involve collaborating with industry practitioners on contemporary issues in the field.
The assessment you undertake will be designed so that you can receive ongoing feedback on your strengths and areas for improvement. This approach will enable you to improve on your performance throughout the course, as well as continue to refine capabilities for your professional practice and lifelong learning. Both the project produced in your final semester and your portfolio will form a capstone experience, designed as a culmination of your learning throughout this degree.
You will attend approximately 12 hours of classes per week, combined with intensive self-directed extra study or research per week.
You will have access to online resources through the student portal.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
