Interior Design in Ghent

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 focusses on designing interiors, spatial installations, scenography, furniture and objects. 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 in BA Interior Design

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 which will run during the first few weeks. You’ll work directly in a professional environment while being coached by LUCA tutors. You’ll be working alongside LUCA students and other exchange students which gives you the opportunity to get to know each other from the start. After this intensive start, you continue your programme at the campus of your choice. Amongst 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.)

If you are studying in Ghent, you can also register for Dutch language classes off campus.

The exchange programme represents a study load of of 30 ECTS credits. Detailed information about the offered course units can be found via

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.
