At The Interior Design Institute, we don't just teach interior design; we encourage every student to access and nurture their own natural sense of flair and creativity. We also teach the technical and practical skills necessary to translate those design ideas into reality.
The Interior Design Course is delivered online and consists of 12 modules and 12 corresponding assignments. You can study in your own time and at your own pace to get the most out of every module. Normally, you would expect to be dedicating an average of 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. Extensions are available for purchase if required.
Students have the opportunity to delve deeper into specific areas of interest in interior design by purchasing Advanced Modules. These are similar to short courses and are specially formulated materials to challenge motivated students to achieve more.
Expand your knowledge and skills with our online, live workshops. As a student enrolled in our course, you’ll gain exclusive access to our exceptional lineup of online sessions, carefully curated to empower you on your learning journey.

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.Read More
On every trip, I would log onto the IDI website and feel the need to subscribe as my passion was there... interiors. Well, I did, and I can attest that it was worth every penny.Read More
I started this course with the love and passion for decorating spaces only with no clue of designing, not knowing the importance of interior design elements and principles, the use of colours and style design. But after completing this course, I can complete floor plans, design kitchens, and play around with different colours and fabrics with confidence!Read More
It was so manageable to do this course while working. I worked part-time, and when projects got intense, I'd take a break from the course, picking up where I left off as soon as work quietened down.Read More
