We have recently (May 2022) had a very successful outcome to a Periodic Review of the undergraduate programmes offered by the Joint School, and have successfully validated 3 new Masters level programmes to be offered in China from September 2022. The highly successful UCLan research initiative ‘Research Centre for Cultural Preservation through Creative Practice’ is also now based out in China with facilities within the partnership. This provides exciting new opportunities for staff to build research profiles within a unique, dynamic and cross-cultural environment.
We are seeking an enthusiastic and resourceful experienced Lecturer in Interior Design to join the team delivering the BA (Hons) Interior Design programme. Subject to qualifications and experience, the successful applicant may also be required to contribute to the new MA Interior Design programme.
