    You might want to consider universities in the U.S., Ireland, Canada, and Australia.
    As with most professions that entail visual arts and creativity, it's difficult to find anything resembling a definitive ranking system for institutes of higher learning. A world-wide list compiled by Design Observer offers a good snapshot of some universities with high standards in interior design courses, including Kansas State University, Ryerson University (Canada), Trinity College Dublin (Ireland), the National University of Singapore Singapore NUS (Singapore), Kingston School of Art (UK) Australians schools like RMIT and QUT are also well respected for their Interior Design programs.

And it notably includes stints abroad where students have studied lighting design liturgical design churches and buildings around Italy. Unsurprisingly maybe - Miami is a hot spot for world-class designers at places like Seaside Resorts or Miami Beach Convention Center Resort who are shaping destinations around the globe.

    The Interior Design Association of Canada and the Architectural Engineering Institute of Canada have a map on their website listing accredited schools for those who want to pursue an education in architecture. Likewise, the American Society of Interior Designers has a US university list. Best to do research and see what offers courses on interior design in your area. Most graduate programs offer HD/HDIR but not many undergraduates offer it.

    It can be hard to definitely prove or disprove the answer to this. The interior design industry is smaller and more exclusive than architecture so it is very difficult for many designers to get published articles in respected publications like Architectural Record. This makes it hard for potential students or employers in other fields to research university programs.
    You might consider asking a designer which universities they graduated from themselves, and prioritizing schools that are well represented by designer alumni at your desired level of study (new graduate/master's student).
    Here аре some top ranked universities with academic departments that have interior design programs:
    1) Rhode Island School of Design- RISD
    2) Illinois Institute of Technology- IIT Chicago; IIT Chicago

    The best university for interior design is the Rhode Island School of Design. This institution has a Preindustrial major and Chair that are dedicated in their pursuit to fully understand the history of art and how it plays an integral role in design moving forward.
    The right artistic approach is crucial for creating concepts that are faithful to both function and form, while also addressing style needs or one's aesthetic sensibilities. Excellent designers may come from many different arts backgrounds, but they all share certain key principles such as visualization skills as well as evaluation, synthesis, invention (or creativity), all tied together with problem solving tenacity.
