Students will be immersed in an industry-partnered, project-based design studio experience to address social, cultural, technological and environmental challenges associated with the production of contemporary interior environments—the spaces in which we live, learn, work and play—in a dynamic changing world.

The Master of Interior Design will provide opportunities for students to position themselves in relation to current interior design practice through collaboration with clients, industry and a network of peers. With an emphasis on ideas and a design-led approach to research and experimentation, the knowledge and skills that will be developed in this course will enable graduates to work in a range of practices while engaging interior design as an agent of social and cultural change.

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, symposia, travel intensives and exhibitions. The course will offer 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. Critical and conceptual abilities will be developed in the engagement of interior design as an expansive practice.

Graduates of this course will be highly effective team contributors with strong communication and technical skills. They will learn how to be a valuable collaborator through the process of developing a collective response to real industry briefs. They will engage with clients (encompassing commercial, institutional, civic and social organisations) and industry practice partners (interior design and associated design practices) together with their fellow students on live projects and challenges. With a strong focus on design challenges affecting the broader Australasian region, there will also be opportunities to undertake global intensives to locations within Asia.

Graduates will be able to take up pivotal design, research and management positions within the Interior Design profession and make significant contributions to its future directions. Career trajectories include working in commercial design and architectural practices where commissions include restaurants, hotels, retail spaces, corporate offices and public buildings as well as employment in advisory roles and strategic positions that utilise design skills, critical thinking and spatial knowledge in broader fields of work including cultural institutions, placemaking, local government, business, cultural events and education.  

Applications are invited from people across the fields of creative practice including interior design, interior architecture, spatial design, landscape architecture, architecture, spatial arts, theatre design, exhibition design, service design, industrial design, experience design and more.

Applications are now open for semester 1, 2020
