Got your heart set on a career in interior design? Our Diploma of Interior Design will give you the skills to get there. This practical and interactive course has sustainable design practices at its core. Gain an in-depth understanding of design processes and principles – and a folio that’ll open endless doors.

Create and plan furniture, fittings and surfaces, colour schemes and concepts for commercial and residential settings. Learn how to document your designs in 2D – through drawing, illustration and drafting, then take them one step further with 3D modelling. You’ll also build your business, communication and presentation skills so that you can communicate your creative vision to clients with confidence and clarity.

Get set to roll up your sleeves and work on multidisciplinary, industry-based design projects. You could find yourself collaborating on design projects with everyone from entrepreneurs and small businesses right through to global tech giants.

Find your creative calling as an interior decorator, interior stylist or in-house designer in retail, domestic and exhibition spaces. Or take the next exciting step with the Advanced Diploma of Interior Design.
