Its 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 global design trends and technical innovations, while developing contacts with interiors sources, products, and suppliers.

    Graduates may work as an interior designer 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.

    Course fees are made up of two components, tuition fees and resource fees.

    Tuition fees are determined by multiplying the course fee rate by the nominal hours, which is the number of hours in which an average student could be expected to complete each unit. They are not the hours of training or instruction.

    Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by NMT to be used by students during the course.

    Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount has been shown. You will be given the exact amount of your fees at enrolment. Part time student fees will vary depending on the number of units you are enrolled in.

    Please note, you may also need to buy textbooks or equipment for your course.
