Choosing this course was one of the best and most productive decisions I have made.
If you're interested in Art, Architecture and Design, you have come to the right place.
In my personal opinion, this is the best Diploma course you can find online, because this course is easy, fast, enjoyable and convenient.
I've had a lot of fun during the journey and my tutor was helpful throughout the course.
I consider this course as a stepping stone to further my career. I'm going to do a course in AutoCAD and I aim make Interior Design my full time career option.
In other words, I thoroughly enjoyed this course!
I have thoroughly enjoyed completing the Interior Design Institute online course. I was able to work at my own pace and study around my full time work and social life. I have always been interested in interior spaces and how to make them work better and feel more comfortable. This was the perfect course to study from home to improve my abilities and obtain the required skills to create new spaces that are special and functional.
My tutor was available to answer every question I had, quickly and concisely. This made me confident in completing each assignment, which made it fun and also made me look forward to reading the notes after it was marked by my tutor.
I found all 12 modules interesting and have learnt so much not only about the history of interior design, but architecture around the world.
I recently met with a client who is requiring my services to design and decorate new buildings for show, both commercial and residential. I am extremely excited and have the confidence from this course to complete the job successfully.
This course has opened my eyes to all the things that make up a space. I am now constantly looking at my surroundings and observing every space I'm in. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who has a passion for Interior Design as it provides all the information to acquire the skills to make a space unique as well as functional.
The Interior Design Institute has given me the knowledge and courage to pursue my dream career of being a professional Interior Designer. The course has provided me with invaluable understanding of the Interior Design profession while allowing me to have hands on experience in designing and planning and interior space with the modules so expertly devised.
It was a tough 12 months, especially with it being an online course. You will be tempted to procrastinate, however, if your passion for Interior Design is true, you will find a way to complete the modules within the given time.
The assistance given to me by my tutor and the student support team were immensely helpful to understand the modules better. I felt comfortable asking my tutor any questions I had. The comments my tutor gave were constructive and concise, allowing me to better grasp the concept the modules taught me.
Joining the IDI social media sites gave me a sense of belonging as I found comfort in knowing there were people all over the world, of all ages, doing the same modules as I am. Exchanging design ideas, networking and inspiring each other, students like me greatly supported each other in the groups as we made our own individual way through learning the craft.
With the confidence I gained from the IDI course, I was able to acquire a job in an Interior Design firm and the knowledge I gained greatly assisted me with the projects I have been doing so far for the firm.
The Interior Design Institute provided a great framework for my first studies in the area of Interior Design and Decorating. The course instilled me with the confidence to start my own business and commit my career to the design industry.
I finished with renewed passion for the industry and a keen attitude to get in there and do it.
The tutors responded to my questions and delivered results promptly and consistently. The course covers all the necessary elements about Interior Design so you can get a feel for what areas will suit you best.
The online component makes the work easy and stress free. Going at your own pace means that you can study as much or as little as you like to complete your assignments in the timeframe that suits your lifestyle.
I recommend the course to anyone who is looking for that kick- start in a new career or a great guide to improving your own home as a hobby. I've already started my own business!
I have always been interested in Interior Design and I was thrilled to find out about this course, as it promised to provide the student with the insight and foundation of Interior Design with the ability for students to study at their own pace.
The course materials were well written and included "local examples" (in my case Singapore), in order to make the reader able to relate and understand the information better. Not only that, in each chapter it would include practical examples along with the Module which helped teach me how an Interior Designer would think.
Each of the twelve assignments were clear and we could always ask for assistance when we did not understand the task well. My personal tutor and support team were always quick to reply and provided me with great assistance. This resulted in each assignment submission being a smooth experience for me.
I would strongly recommend this course for anyone that has an interest in Interior Design as this course will provide you with great knowledge through a flexible learning approach.
I used to work for a finance company doing marketing which, as the years went on I found less and less interesting and I knew my heart wasn't in it. A few years ago I was involved in a pretty bad car accident and following that it made me realise that life is too short and you shouldn't be in a job you hate you should be doing what you love.
My passion has always been Interior Design, I used to do it as hobby, then my brother opened up his own cafe and I did the Interior Design for him, then I realised I was pretty good and I decided to make this into my career and do something I enjoyed so much. So I decided I wanted to learn more about it and get a qualification in Interior Design.
So I did a Google search and the Interior Design Institute was top of the list, the course seemed just want I was looking and it was also very reasonably priced. So I decided to take a huge gamble and leave my secure boring marketing job and I took a few months off and started the course.
I was enjoying it so much before I knew it I was half way through, it didn't feel like a chore to have to do the assignments as I enjoyed them so much. I loved the detail of history it informs you about, how Interior Design came together from all.
I now run a successful franchise focusing on property styling, home staging and show homes and I am now so happy to be able to turn around and say that I love my job and that I am finally a qualified Interior Designer, all thanks to this course. Thank you.
Interior Design has been a passion I have longed to explore. I have spent most of my career in various sales roles, including three years as a legal recruitment consultant. I have always enjoyed looking at architecture, art and interior spaces.
I first thought about studying Interior Design after purchasing my house which required refurbishment and Interior Decoration work. I thought it would useful to have the technical knowledge and skills to transform the house into a beautiful home. Due to work commitments at the time I was unable to pursue any studies. However, last year I decided that life is too short to miss out on opportunities and it is imperative to follow your dreams and ambitions, thus prompting me to research potential online courses.
After reading the outline of the course and the testimonial page on The Interior Design Institutes' website, I just knew immediately that this was the right course for me.
I found the course comprehensive and thorough, leaving no stone unturned. This allowed me to gain employment within a residential interior design shop in the beginning, where I have benefited from having the opportunity to put colour schemes together. During the latter part of my course, I decided to approach a commercial design practice where I was successful in being offered a position. I believe the course has given me enviable experience and exposure to the world of residential and commercial interiors.
I have found the whole team a pleasure to deal with. The prompt response from the support team was especially impressive. Advice and feedback given to me from my wonderful tutor was really helpful and encouraging throughout the course, which enabled me to move onto the next module in confidence knowing I had truly understood the module and assignments required.
I am ecstatic about achieving my Diploma. Without this Diploma and experience of studying via distant learning, I would not have been able to realise my dream of becoming a professional Interior Designer.
I would recommend this course to any like-minded individuals thinking about studying through this method. My whole experience with The Interior Design Institute has exceeded my expectations of surpassing my goals of becoming qualified in the wonderful world of Interiors.
