Bachelor of Interior Design (Honours)

Working in a highly creative studio setting, you will develop rich experiential sensibilities and a sophisticated array of approaches to the design of interior environments. These could range from detailed, material-focused projects including furniture and joinery, to event-based situations like exhibitions, installations and performances, or large-scale complex projects, such as commercial spaces, retail precincts and public or community centres. 

Different interiors are considered, from architectural, retail, exhibition and urban environments to digital and filmic spaces, performance and theatre design, art installations and more. 

Your studies conclude with the highly-celebrated graduate exhibition INDEX. This event brings together industry, staff and students to celebrate the discipline of Interior Design and its future through the work of these emerging designers.

Selection task requirements 

You are required to provide the following: 

a statement outlining your interest in interior design (maximum 150 words) 

a statement describing your experience such as employment, voluntary work, etc., or a description of what you have done, over what periods and how it strengthens your application to this program (maximum 150 words) 

a two part design exercise which provides an opportunity to communicate your creative thinking through an image and written responses. You should draw on your own experience, imagination and skills in putting forward a thoughtful and creative response of your own. There is no one correct response that we are looking for and we do not expect you to have any substantial prior knowledge of interior design. In this task we are looking for you to demonstrate a critical and considered understanding of your own work. 

o Part 1: Provide a piece of your own work (a single image) that demonstrates your creative abilities. You are free to use any medium, including drawing, illustration, model making or sculpture, photography, collages, painting, anything that you think will express your creativity. The image must be formatted as JPEG or PDF and must be no larger than 3MB or you may provide a URL to your single image if hosted online. 

o Part 2: In no more than 300 words, discuss the thinking behind the creative piece you selected in Part 1 including the reasons why you selected it.
