Our Interior Architecture and Design (including foundation year) BA (Hons) is designed to help you build a portfolio of work, while developing the skills necessary to begin an undergraduate degree.
This course is also a gateway into an undergraduate degree if you don’t meet the necessary requirements for the three-year course.
This course adopts an innovative approach to teaching, designed to help you explore your capabilities and guide you towards establishing an individual direction within creative practices at The Cass.
The intensive foundation year will be shared with other students at The Cass and will help you develop knowledge and skills related to a range of specialist undergraduate degree programmes. In your first term you’ll start by taking part in a range of short studio and workshop projects in visual imagery and practical making. The following term will cover spatial and orthogonal drawing, inhabitation, materials, process, modelling, structure, scale and surface.
The subsequent three years of your studies will be shared with students starting their studies on the three-year course. To learn more about the course content during the final three years please visit our Interior Architecture and Design BA (Hons) course page.
If you’d like to change your specialism following the foundation year, there will be flexibility to allow you to do this.
Your assessments during the four-year course will consist of presentations, illustrated documents, essays, seminar papers tests and a dissertation.
In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:
To study a degree at London Met, you must be able to demonstrate proficiency in the English language.

If you need (or wish) to improve your English before starting your degree, the University offers a Pre-sessional Academic English course to help you build your confidence and reach the level of English you require.
Year 2 modules include:
Year 3 modules include:
On graduation you’ll be able to work in design or architectural practices or continue your studies at postgraduate level.
This is a four-year degree course with a built-in foundation year (Year 0). A foundation year at The Cass is the starting point for many of our art, architecture and design students and acts as an introduction to the wide range of creative practices explored within the University. You may join us with a clear idea of the subject you intend to study or you may use it as an opportunity to explore a number of different directions or experiment with your creativity. A foundation year degree is also a great choice if you don't meet the necessary entry requirements for the standard undergraduate degree. You'll graduate with a full undergraduate degree with the same title and award as those who studied the three-year course.
Please note, in addition to the tuition fee there may be additional costs for things like equipment, materials, printing, textbooks, trips or professional body fees.
Additionally, there may be other activities that are not formally part of your course and not required to complete your course, but which you may find helpful (for example, optional field trips). The costs of these are additional to your tuition fee and the fees set out above and will be notified when the activity is being arranged.
