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.

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.

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.

Gaborone, Botswana

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!

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.
