Our dynamic, contemporary and creative provision in arts, design, architecture and media is delivered from our unique campus in the heart of the City of Norwich. Teaching at NUA has long been recognised as being of the very highest standard, and this was recently confirmed with the University achieving a Gold Award against the metrics of the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) 2017. Graduate employability, curriculum relevance and creative practice are key factors in our acknowledged success and national profile. 

BA (Hons) Interior Design at NUA is an exciting venture for NUA and this vibrant course will see its second intake of students in September 2017. We embrace diversity and promote innovation in our approach to studying interior design and the curriculum is designed to support students as they embark on careers within the industry. The course is located alongside other practice-based disciplines in the Faculty of Design and Architecture where students benefit from becoming part of a wholly creative community of makers, doers and thinkers. Well-resourced workshops, library, open lectures, exhibitions, events and collaborative projects with students across disciplines enhance the student experience at NUA.

Following the successes of the current post-holder in developing and launching the course, we are now seeking to appoint a Course Leader with the drive, ambition and experience to continue to lead, promote and deliver this flourishing award. The successful candidate will possess a comprehensive knowledge of contemporary interior architecture and design together with a deep understanding of the requirements for an undergraduate award that is clearly focused on preparing students for their future careers.

You will be able to demonstrate excellent skills in organisation and management. You will have a background of working professionally in a related area of interior architecture and design and bring with you strong professional relationships with high profile industry contacts. You will demonstrate an understanding of the current and future drivers for curriculum content and design and have an understanding of the wider Higher Education context and the current strategic imperatives faced by UK universities.
