In this course, you will be taught in a studio format that is reflective of commercial design studios. Your teachers will interact and work with you as if you are a junior designer.
You’ll learn through lectures, workshops, studios, online learning, and classroom and industry presentations, real-world briefs, and on-site visits. You’ll acquire a broad range of hands-on skills (rendering, architectural drafting, CAD, Rivet, model making, Photoshop, client presentation), and develop knowledge of the history and theory of colour and design.
During your studies, you’ll work on live projects with members of industry, modelling the consultancy practice of interior designers and decorators for client presentations.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes concept design development, digital and verbal presentations, group projects, research and practical tasks.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches including lectures, seminars, studios, workshops, presentations, group discussions and syndicate work. These are primarily in English.
You will have access to online resources.
Learning at RMIT
The types of classes you have will depend on the course you’re studying. Classes are offered in various formats designed to provide meaningful engagement with staff, industry and peers and provide for access and use of spaces where learning can be applied and active, including an array of specialised equipment.
Most RMIT courses do not include passive large-scale classes such as lectures, instead the content traditionally provided in lectures is made available online. This may be in the form of readings, videos or other on-demand learning materials. This content will also support the basis of interactive learning that takes place in on-campus classes.
