240 ECTS

The Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design is equivalent to a University degree (240 ECTS). Taught in English.

This course prepares professionals who are capable of planning  from a private house, a commercial space, a stand for a fair or an exhibition space, as well as furniture or special pieces thanks to their basic knowledge on product design. 

The students get a multidisciplinary training based on the skills needed to develop spatial and multi-sensory perception, creative thinking, an understanding of the aesthetic-emotional dimension, and management and innovation skills.

The Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design focuses on the user experience, light control, finishes, technology and materials.

Information to decide


The studies undertaken in the first year focus on acquiring the basic concepts of interior design, as well as the project methodology and culture.

The second year is centred around developing the student’s creativity through a more individual approach, delving deeper into the project culture and introducing the key computer software related to the specialisation.

In the third year, more technical and complex projects are developed with models and real costs. New materials are also studied and work is carried out in transversal teams including students of Interior, Product and Transport Design.

During the fourth year, students choose their professional profile and undertake a compulsory internship within a company. The final project is also carried out with real companies.

Students learn to observe trends and how styles evolve in social and cultural contexts, and also to comprehend and interpret the specific exigencies and expectations of each client, while encouraging creativity and expressive freedom, and respecting the demands from a future user and the technical problems that may be involved. These abilities arise thanks to acquiring a great sensitivity towards projects and an interdisciplinary culture.
