Purpose Of The Program

The Interior Design program educates and trains individuals capable of producing creative solutions while taking into account ergonomic, physiologic, economic and cultural properties in the design of spaces, 3D surfaces, furniture, colors and products using technological developments and techniques.

A student enrolled in the Interior Design program can transfer to another program within the same institution after 1 semester through the horizontal transfer system by consideration of their Cumulative Grade Point Average or their Central Placement Score.

Our students must successfully complete their internships so that they become familiar with situations related to their fields. Upon completion of their internships students will have had the opportunity to apply their theoretical knowledge and skills to practical situations and applications. As a result, students are better equipped when they enter the workforce. 
Students of the program can conduct their internships in the fields of architecture, furniture production or construction. 

Each year, Istanbul Rumeli University offers students the opportunity to participate in the exchange of students with universities abroad within the extent of exchange programs administrated by the International   Relations Office of Rumeli University.
