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

The modules were not only enjoyable, but they provided USEFUL information - the kind that I'm sure will be a big help in the future as an interior designer. My tutor was super nice, helpful and had amazing ideas on how I could improve my work, and the community was also very inspiring and motivating! It was so good to read all the IDI student success stories, as I'm hoping to become one of them!
