Master of Interior Design

RMIT University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00122A

The Master of Interior Design will provide you with an opportunity to position yourself 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 you develop in this course will enable you to work in a range of practices, and to engage interior design as an agent of social and cultural change. Graduates of this course will be highly effective team contributors with strong communication and technical skills. You will learn how to be a valuable contributor through the process of developing a collective response to real industry briefs. You will engage with clients (encompassing commercial, institutional, civic and social organisations) and industry practice partners (interior design and associated design practices) together with the student cohort on live projects and challenges.


Year 1 - During the first year, you will undertake two industry-partnered interior design studios and two core subjects that will operate as a direct support to the partnered design studio project, providing opportunities to refine specific skills and design techniques. These include communication (written, verbal and visual), technologies (manufacturing, materials, and experiential) as they are relevant to the project, and provide a base for further extension. You will also choose from a suite of elective subjects from allied areas of business, communication, social science, environment and technology. Year 2 - In the second year, you will continue to develop your design capabilities through the completion of two further industry-partnered interior design studios, as well as core subjects, and further electives. In your final semester, the design studio will be complimented by a portfolio-based subject that will support you in identifying, evaluating and communicating key areas of interest, skills and expertise which will together form a profile of your practice, enabling you to position yourself within the design profession.
