Lecturer in Interior Design

University of Salford - School of Arts & Media

The programme offers a broad grounding for professional Interior Design practice. The first year establishes good practice in industry standard software and visual representation, whilst exploring notions of spatial interventions and the concept of building narratives. Appropriate selection and use of materials is studied via practical project based modules including the investigation of sustainable materials and technologies. There is a focus on creativity and experimentation in studio and workshop practice to develop an individual approach, and students are encouraged to take risks in design projects to develop ideas.

In the second year, architectural technology is explored via detail design for manufacture exercises in relation to the built environment. Building analysis and feasibility reports are prepared for real buildings which address current legislation and building regulations. During the second trimester specialist tutors deliver a live module normally in the field of film and set design. Students are encouraged to take a placement towards the end of this trimester to forge links with the industry.

In the third year students undertake a negotiated major project that is backed up by a module of advanced research strategies. Throughout the course students undertake a curriculum of critical and theoretical studies as well as personal and professional development.

BA (Hons.) Interior Design has extensive links with the architectural and interior design industry and is taught by tutors who have led well-established careers in the field. The programme also has a strong record of inviting key figures and specialist design professionals to deliver guest lectures and contribute to the teaching and learning experience. Visits to developments, buildings, practices and showrooms are embedded within the course in order to ensure practice-based learning, as are overseas exchanges.

Work placements and industry sponsored projects form part of the course allowing students to experience the cutting edge of design practice. Graduates have gone on to work in all areas of design in architectural and interior design practices including large retail organisations, construction departments, film and TV companies.

This is an exciting time to join the School where we have moved into our brand new building and are growing our links with industry and international institutions, particularly in China and North America.

We are committed to being an inclusive employer and are working towards developing an inclusive working environment celebrating the diversity of our University community.
