Through the University I won an award to work for an architectural practice on a two-week placement and was hired full-time after I graduated. The regeneration work I did on my course and the experience gained in the design studios helped me get noticed in my job and take on projects that gave me invaluable architectural knowledge.

A number of alternative career paths in related areas will also be available to you, from lighting and events design, to teaching, graphic design and TV, film and theatre set design.

    We are a haven for anarchy, intuition and emotionally charged mavericks. Through interior design you can indulge in an ultimately accessible art form, shape spaces which tell stories, toy with emotions and cause tingling sensations. It is a course that can fire and fulfil your creative passion.

  • Julie has worked in furniture, interiors and exhibition design, but her true passion is design education. Her design inspiration comes from poetry, music, theatre and observing what makes people tick, all in the belief that creativity is heightened by working with others. Julie's personal research interests include the role of senses and emotions in design activity.
