Diploma course

This full-time course is aimed at students wishing to gain an understanding of interior design to change career, continue in further education or for individual property development. No previous experience is required. Emphasis is placed on understanding the design process and developing an idea from client brief to presentation. This is taught through practical studio projects that introduce you to spatial and conceptual design issues and the skills that will allow you to develop your creative, technical and analytical abilities. The course encompasses, residential and commercial interiors, creative 2D and 3D exercises, computer training and career guidance.

Evening classes

There are three evening classes – ten-week introduction, 30-week certificate and 60-week advanced certificate. There are two Saturday workshops in each ten-week term. The courses are taught by a combination of lectures and residential design projects developed in the studio. The advanced certificate is the equivalent to the first module of the three-module diploma.

One-day Inspiration course

This is a stimulating and practical day that introduces the process of creating a design brief for an interior – whether you’re interested in designing your own home, or thinking about interior design as a career. These courses run throughout the year and the cost is refundable against any of the longer courses.
