Diploma in Interior Design: Advanced Case Study

Description

LAUNCHING SEPTEMBER 2024- PRE BOOK NOW FOR  LAUNCH RATES

This advanced course allows students to gain an internationally recognised Level 3 Diploma focusing on the application of theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a practical comprehensive home project. This hands-on course will require students to physically go into a real home, with real clients using the current market and utilise the skills they have gained to complete a comprehensive interior design project through a detailed case study. Students will explore the synthesis of various design elements from design contracts, spatial planning, furniture selection, material choices, lighting design, and technical drawings. This course will require 4 in person lessons but students will have up to 12 weeks to submit and complete their final project.

Optional add on: Training Diploma in Interior Design: Advanced Case Study students have the exciting opportunity to add on a Final Field element to the course. Students who select this option will study and work with our partner interior design and construction firm for a 3-4 days of hands on training and then spend 4-6 weeks working on real interior design projects. This course aims to enhance students’ ability to conceptualise, develop, and execute interior design projects to professional standards.
