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.

This course teaches you more than just “how to make a space pretty”; it teaches you the foundation of design as a whole, going in depth about colour and shape language, some history on architecture, the different styles in different eras, how to create floor plans and much more.
