Educating the next generation of Interior Designers

Why is a tech-friendly interior design course better than a traditional interior design Course?

  • Efficiency & productivity

    Our courses leverage the power of technology to enhance efficiency and productivity by integrating the latest design software and digital tools into the curriculum. You’ll learn how to use Programa, the ultimate specification, project management, and collaboration software for interior designers and architects.

  • Visualisation & communication

    You’ll use digital design software to enhance visualisation and communication. You’ll learn how to leverage 3D modelling and rendering software, virtual reality (VR) and computer-aided design (CAD) software to visualise and simulate designs.
    These tools will enable you to create realistic representations of your ideas, experiment with different layouts, materials, and colour schemes, and make informed design decisions.

  • Adaptability skills

    Interior design is a dynamic industry that experiences constant changes in trends, styles, and preferences. Adaptability allows designers to embrace new ideas, experiment with different styles, and evolve design approaches to stay relevant and competitive. Mastering adaptability skills will enable you to tailor your work to suit different aesthetics, budgets, and functional requirements, ensuring client satisfaction.

  • Career opportunities

    Gaining proficiency in the latest tools will better position you for a wider range of career opportunities, offering you greater career advancement and financial success.

These relationships enable us to tap into the current design community to offer engaging guest speakers, industry placements, or potential employment opportunities to our students. In addition to this, many of our graduates who have built their own unique interior design businesses still work with us today, mentoring and guiding our next generation of interior designers.
