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

I have found this course to be such a detailed, thorough and well thought out course. I have learnt so much not only about interior design but also the crucial elements of launching a design business, which I think is key to having the confidence to launch my own interior design business.

During the course, I had the opportunity to have my work featured on the social media of The Interior Design Institute and of a famous Australian interior designer. This was a great encouragement for me and has pushed me to always give the best and to pursue this as a career path.

The module layout and online interaction were perfect for my circumstance and so I signed up immediately. I feel that I have learned so much and had questions answered through the course material and my very helpful tutor, Sophie Seeger. Having been to university and dealing with tutors face to face, I was anxious as to how successful the online interaction would be with my tutor but Sophie was brilliant. She helped me feel welcome and was a fountain of knowledge.
