The Online Interior Design Course

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.

Interior Design Course Outline

The Interior Design Course is delivered online and consists of 12 modules and 12 corresponding assignments. You can study in your own time and at your own pace to get the most out of every module. Normally, you would expect to be dedicating an average of 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. Extensions are available for purchase if required.

Interior Design Advanced Modules

Students have the opportunity to delve deeper into specific areas of interest in interior design by purchasing Advanced Modules. These are similar to short courses and are specially formulated materials to challenge motivated students to achieve more.

Interior Design Workshops

Expand your knowledge and skills with our online, live workshops. As a student enrolled in our course, you’ll gain exclusive access to our exceptional lineup of online sessions, carefully curated to empower you on your learning journey.

For anyone interested in interior design and who wants 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.
