As an Interior Designer , you have the ability and power to craft and transform the experiences of everyday living.

At the Diploma of Interior Design (DID), you will be equipped with skills to go beyond mere interior decoration. You will learn and engage in design research to develop your ideas and create interior spaces that are functional and purposeful. You will be taught how to combine design aesthetics with technical knowledge, and develop techniques to best communicate your ideas.

Interior Design students are also exposed to Specialisation workshops and Studio projects. This introduces them to various research and experimentation processes, helping them assemble a Design Portfolio that has gained recognition by employers in the design industry, as well as local and overseas Universities.

Making space your playground

The Diploma in Interior Design opened my senses to different paths that I might be able to venture into upon graduation, be it graphic, architectural or industrial design, we were able to gain substantial theoretical and practical knowledge beneficial to the workforce. Though I had no design background such as Art or D&T, I was able to learn quickly and grasp well in this course. Through this course you will start to notice your spatial surroundings, where the wall floor door does not simply form a cold space, but one that gives meaning and evokes emotion, inspiring thoughts as well.
