The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Interior Design gives students the opportunity to study the aesthetic response of the elements of design which include, for example, space, shape, form, mass, line, texture, pattern, light and color in two and three dimensional space through experiments and projects. Coursework is structured to assist students in the development of their goals as they acquire the knowledge and skills common to interior design professionals.
The goal of the BFA in Interior Design is to provide students with the skills needed to improve the quality of life, to increase the productivity and to protect the health, safety and welfare of the public through creative and innovative design solutions.
In this industry-focused curriculum, students can investigate the principles of interior design, including unity, balance, proportion, scale and rhythm. They will be challenged to develop practical applications by completing a design project, using their acquired knowledge of contextual analysis, color psychology, client analysis, selecting finishes through mood and sample board as well as various other presentation techniques.
The AIU BFA in Interior Design gives students the opportunity to investigate the fundamental elements of interior design and conveys their use through practical and theoretical research. In this curriculum, students can learn how to:

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
