Course Outline

The Interior Design Course is delivered online, consisting of 12 comprehensive modules and 12 corresponding interactive assignments. 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.

Jennie Lytton

So I have decided to set up my own interior styling and e-design business (just on a part-time basis for the moment), hopefully as I learn and progress, this will turn into something full time.

Gerard McGuickin

I enjoyed the trajectory of the programme - it was structured and made sense. My favourite modules included the visual language of design, styles of design and furniture design. I also enjoyed the fictional, but very practical and useful, client project that bridged several modules.
