However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.

Carina Ferguson

For anyone interested in interior design and want 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.

My love for interior design has always been strong, I went looking for a course to do that I would be able to afford and when I stumbled across The Interior Design Institute, I knew it was the perfect course for me. 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!

I had often considered a career in Interior Design but always thought it either too 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!
