About the Institute

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 Institute offers you a complete online solution to learning.

Online education is quickly becoming a preferred method of study for people all around the world who are looking for additional skills to help them make more money, start successful careers, turn a favourite interest into something more or accomplish a personal quest for self-improvement.

While distance learning programs have been available from a variety of providers for some time, it is the invention of the web, which has revolutionised the opportunities available to students wishing to study in this way. Our commitment to providing a quality training program has resulted in unique teaching and student support systems that produce unparalleled results.

Our Interior Design Course brings you everything you need to achieve the success you want.

Although some full time schools run interior design correspondence courses as a sideline, we have specialised in teaching interior design solely online, and our course is specifically tailored to suit busy individuals who cannot give up work and domestic commitments to attend full time courses and lectures.

Discover your true potential now by taking the next step. Enrol today and take your interior design skills to another level!

The Interior Design Institute is your partner for a better and brighter future.

My tutor made me feel like she was my best friend, and always gave the most valuable feedback. I really enjoyed every comment from my tutor, her feedback was invaluable, the marking was always prompt, and the return of assignments was excellent.
