The interior designer has evolved greatly over time, becoming a key player in the development of contemporary living spaces. The design of spaces for the habitat, the studio, commercial spaces or even sanitary facilities cannot be understood today without an interior designer.
At ESADA we offer the Official Degree in Interior Design, which is a qualification from the Ministry of Education equivalent to a university degree for all purposes. These studies are part of the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and are therefore valid internationally.
If you dream of creating meeting spaces that respond to contemporary culture, anticipate change and dialogue with our past, this is the profession for you!
Studying Interior Design will allow students to acquire a large number of skills to tackle the different disciplines that make up their work (architecture, graphic design, decorative arts, furniture and lighting design, textiles...). All these skills have to be learned in a practical way with methodologies that respond to what students will really need for their professional development.
ESADA's main interest is to guide students in their training until they become professionals capable of critical thinking, effective communicators, and have the ability to work as part of a team. All these goals are achieved with a teaching team of great professional experience, and an innovative methodology of Project Based Learning (PBL) that allows students to put into practice the different knowledge in integrated projects of a professional nature from the first year of the degree.
The projects that students will tackle will increase in complexity, and are strategically planned to address the different aspects of interior design.
From the first year onwards, students will have the opportunity to participate in international design competitions, where ESADA students have won several prizes that guarantee the quality of their projects.
At ESADA, formal training is complemented by lectures given by leading figures on the national and international interior design scene.
The creative process is different in each project, which means that it never ceases to surprise and interest the designer.

ESADA, aware of the revolution that digital marketing is bringing about in communications and the importance this has in the professional development of our students, has developed a specialisation in this discipline that all students at our school will be able to access.
Three subjects related to Digital Marketing are offered and the aim is for students to obtain the necessary knowledge to manage their own brand or to obtain an alternative outlet in the labour market, related to these new professions in demand:
Students will be able to take these subjects within the optional programme of our study plans. At the end of the course, they will receive a certificate from the centre accrediting their specialisation in Digital Marketing.
The objective of higher artistic education in Design will be the qualified training of professionals in the field of design, capable of understanding, defining and optimising design products and services in their different fields, mastering scientific, humanistic, technological and artistic knowledge and the methods and procedures associated with them, as well as generating values of artistic, cultural, social and environmental significance, in response to the social and technological changes that are taking place.
As it is a regulated education, the regulations that develop the Degree in Design in the speciality of Interior Design establish a series of Specific Competences that students must acquire, which are:
It is necessary to consider the Interior Designer as the professional currently required by the market, with a technical-artistic profile, occupying the place that other professionals, due to their mainly technical profile, have not been able to develop (as is the case of technical architects), or excessively artistic professionals who have limited themselves fundamentally to working with volumes and urban spaces (as is the case of professional architects).
In practice, what career opportunities can I find by studying Interior Design?
