About Chelsea College of Arts

Chelsea College of Arts has an international reputation as a prestigious inter-disciplinary art school, with leading artists and designers starting their careers at Chelsea for over 100 years.

Interior and spatial design is one of the largest subject areas at Chelsea. A wide range of programmes are offered, such as short courses, undergraduate degrees, postgraduate degrees and research. Our large teaching faculty have expertise in everything from residential and commercial interiors, design of large-scale public spaces, design management and business skills, as well as related areas such as visual communication and research, and furniture, textile and product design.

As a student of a large art school like Chelsea, you will learn interior design as a subject that is situated within a broader art and design context. This means you will study in a more open way, exploring wide ranges of influences and ideas, and being challenged to experiment and think creatively about your designs. You will also be encouraged to achieve very high standards in both your technical and creative execution.
