Interior Design in Brussels

Professional Bachelor / Exchange Programme

When choosing Interior Design, taught at our campus Sint-Lukas Brussels and our campus Sint-Lucas Ghent, you'll be challenged to immerse yourself in spatial design as a whole.


Interior Design is a 3-year professionally oriented spatial design course. A thorough technical and cultural training goes hand in hand with a significant amount of practice based learning. The programme concentrates on interior design, installations, scenography, furniture design and object design.  Students are encouraged to develop their talents and interests and to thus find their place in the professional field of interior design. LUCA offers this programme in Ghent and Brussels. The course programme on both campuses is identical. Students from both campuses jointly take part in workshops and excursions.

By hands-on learning you'll discover which design methods and fields of activity suit you best. The singularity and identity of each student form the basis for becoming a (self)critical and authentic designer.

Programme for exchange students: Exchange students are welcome to join the programme in 3BA (first semester).              

After taking part in an interactive introduction week, students start the semester with the LUCA work placement programme (LUCA-Upstairs) which will run during the first few weeks. Luca-Upstairs is an internal professional agency in the center of Brussels. You'll focus on social and cultural (real-life) projects where you go in depth into these projects by exploring good practices, among other things. One example could be learning how to design for a vulnerable group of people or how to design a well-being space for various social groups.

Working together (in team) with real clients, partners and target groups is a challenge and an excellent learning process for your development, in which social service and sustainability are central!

After this intensive start, you continue your programme at the campus of your choice. Among other things, you’ll learn to develop a prototype based on an idea you designed earlier (furniture/ scenography/ object), you’ll learn to analyse and investigate a given context and actively participate in cultural visits (lectures, biennials, exhibitions, dance and music performances, guided tours or interior visits).

What do you need?

A good command of English (level B2) is required to make the most of your stay with us.

    Campus Sint-Lucas Ghent:

    At LUCA we attach great importance to the quality of our courses

    If the basic principle of the policy plan means that 'quality is our driving force', and that every aspect of the policy can be tested against this, then LUCA undeniably wants to develop and nurture a strong quality culture: a culture that leaves based on trust in people with talent and expertise, and which is aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

    The formal quality framework for training within LUCA was named KOPERA, which stands for: Critically Analyzing the Quality of Training with Peers in Own Direction.
    For KOPERA, LUCA starts from a vision of quality care that is based on trust and aimed at valuing, inspiring and improving.

    During the six-year KOPERA cycle, each training course receives a panel of critical friends who examine the implementation of the quality characteristics and examine how the training contributes to the general LUCA policy.
    The final element of KOPERA is the ultimate assurance of training quality. The key question is: "Does the program have a good quality culture that follows the 'plan-do-check-act' circle?"

    LUCA publishes a quality sheet for each course. You can find this on the Education Quality page.
