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.

For anyone interested in interior design and wanting the flexibility of studying from home, I would highly recommend this course. Being able to set how slowly or quickly I worked through each module while looking after young children and part-time work, was really ideal.

I had often considered a career in Interior Design but always thought it either to hard to get into or really didn’t know where to start. My confidence and skills have increased immensely since studying for this Diploma and I have a new outlook on the future – not to mention my house which is now looking pretty fantastic!

As it was not only affordable, but it is also self-paced therefore being able to fit my study time in around a busy life!
