RMIT is a global university of technology, design and enterprise. Our mission is to help shape the world through research, innovation, teaching and engagement, and to create transformative experiences for our students, getting them ready for life and work.

The School of Architecture and Urban Design delivers innovative scholarship in architecture, interior design, landscape architecture and related fields of design. Innovation in learning and teaching is a key strength of the school. Practice-based and vertically integrated scholarship involving students, staff and practitioners provides an engagement in research-led design projects. The School is leading the establishment of international excellence in research which is aligned to and working with RMIT’s global network of partnerships, industries and cities, another of the University’s key strategic aims. It is recognised as the world leader in Design Practice Research with distinguished practitioner PhD cohorts geographically clustered around activities in Melbourne, Barcelona and Ho Chi Minh City.

Interior Design at RMIT University is engaged as an expansive practice that addresses the relation between people and their environments—how we live, work, learn and play—in a dynamic and changing world. A global leader in Interior Design education and research, we position interior design as a critical practice that contributes to and transforms social, cultural, technological and environmental conditions in the twenty-first century. In 2020, a Master of Interior Design will commence and become part of the discipline stream which includes the Bachelor of Interior Design (Hons) and PhD by practice research. The discipline staff is currently composed of 12 academics who have practice backgrounds in interior design, architecture, curation, installation art, sculpture, digital design, history and writing.
