Course Outline

The Interior Design Course is delivered online, consisting of 12 comprehensive modules and 12 corresponding interactive assignments. The course is designed to be self-paced. Normally you would expect to be dedicating on average about 4-6 hours per week for 24 weeks. However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.

Advanced Modules

Students also have the opportunity to delve deeper into areas of Interior Design through the purchasing of Advanced Modules that are available to students who have demonstrated a strong foundation knowledge of Interior Design.

I (a person with NO prior interior design knowledge) started to work through my modules thoroughly and started focusing on every detail of my assignments. I have since received a raise and my boss asked me to not leave for at least three years, and help her to build this company. Any person who just gives their all to the modules and assignments, will flourish and become more than they ever could have expected.

The platform of use with this online study was not a big decision, I opened up the website and immediately knew that I wanted to study here. The freedom of working in your own time and with the help of the online Tutor (which is amazing) gives you the choice of when and where to do it.

Taking on this course coincided with being at a complete career crossroads. I was working as a project assistant for a logistics company but I knew that I wanted to be an interior designer. Over the past few months, I have been motivated to carry on, encouraged by my tutor and the nature of the course.
