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

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!

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.

I decided to embark on my interior design journey with The Interior Design Institute, which turned out to be hugely rewarding and really gave me the tools and the confidence to turn all my ideas into a reality. Although I have done many decorating projects in the past, I wanted to know about interior design at a deeper level to help my work be more professional and informed as I continue to progress.
