The course is designed to be self-paced. 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.
You can contact your tutor at any time through our secure student site, which you will gain access to once you enrol. Your tutor's role is to assess your assignments and provide you with feedback. They are also available to answer any questions you may have about the course.
No. The courses are completed online. This means there are no classes to attend. You can study in your own time and at your own pace.
No. The course is designed to allow for students who have had little or no experience in interior design.
Our course is compatible with both PC and Mac devices, and basic computer knowledge is required. You will need:
- Microsoft Office with Excel, PowerPoint and Word (or similar software)
- Internet access
- Scanner or digital camera
As the course is provided online, you have the flexibility to start when and where it suits you. If you enrolled today, for example, you could start straight away.
We recommend students source the following items. These are completely optional:
Scale ruler / Standard ruler / Lead pencil / Eraser / Fine liner black pen 0.5mm / Blank paper to draw on or a visual diary / Tape measure
If you need more time, you can purchase one of our affordable extensions. We currently offer 3, 6 and 12 month extensions. Alternatively, you can purchase an Advanced Module, which will come with a 6 month extension.
Yes. We have a dedicated student Facebook group with over 20k active members. This group allows you to connect with other like-minded designers where you can discuss your assignments, the course and all things design.
No. When you purchase our course, the Advanced Modules will not be included. Our Advanced Modules are short courses and are optional for those who wish to further their studies. They will be available to purchase for students who are enrolled in our course and have completed the first two modules. They are comprised of one module and one assignment and you are mentored by a specialist in the topic selected.
No. Unfortunately, we do not offer our Advanced Modules to the public. Only students enrolled in our course can purchase them.
While it is desirable to be able to draw as an interior designer, it is not a requirement for our course. Our patient tutors are passionate and will teach you the correct techniques to express your ideas through drawing.
Our courses are delivered online and all information is provided digitally. As soon as you enrol, you will gain access to our online student site. You can download the course materials as you proceed through each module. As the modules are provided in PDF format you can keep them for future reference and print if you wish. The only time we mail something out is when you successfully graduate our course.
Our course does not include any CAD software. We do, however, teach AutoCAD, ArchiCAD and SketchUp through our Advanced Modules. These can be purchased as you progress through the course.
