It's what's on the inside that counts

This qualification will give you the practical skills and knowledge to find creative and technical solutions for built interior environments.

Interior design includes planning and detailing complex residential, hospitality, retail, commercial and institutional design projects with an emphasis on space creation and spatial planning. Interior designers consider aesthetics, function, branding, manufacturing, marketability and construction of interior spaces, including materials and sustainable environments and special needs for the benefit of the user.

You will learn to adapt to global design trends and technical innovations while developing contacts with interiors sources, products, and suppliers.

Graduates may work as interior designers for interior design and architectural practices or become self-employed design consultants. And employment opportunities are good in the commercial sector including interior decoration work in office-fit outs for large businesses.

The Advanced Diploma of Interior Design is a great precursor to further study at University. With a higher qualification, you can improve your earning potential and employment prospects.
