Additional entry requirements

Tutor approval is required for this course. Please apply online and someone will contact you to arrange an interview. This course is designed to follow on from the BTEC L2 Certificate in Interior (3D) Design, or for those with equivalent experience in Interior Design (i.e. approximately one year studying one day per week). An understanding of perspective, scale drawing and model making is essential, as is a passion for interior design and a willingness to experiment with new materials and techniques. Previous art and design experience (e.g. life drawing, painting, illustration etc.) is highly desirable. No knowledge of AutoCAD/Sketch Up is necessary, as you will learn these programs to some extent during the course. This is essentially a practical, project-led course of learning, not a theoretical or lecture-driven course, so you must be prepared to study and progress your projects independently, both inside and outside the class. One-to-one tuition will be given and an individual learning plan drawn up to help you achieve your personal goals.

Continuing and also going to try the Portraiture class. Richmond College is excellent.
