Do You Dream Of Being An Interior Designer?


Interior Design is a unique discipline that involves creativity, architectural knowledge, spatial awareness, problem-solving skills, and good business practice.

With many exciting opportunities to pursue a career in interior design or as a designer in the retail, exhibition, theatre set design, lighting design, leisure, surface pattern, merchandising, housing areas, or continue to postgraduate study (including teacher training), an interior design degree or diploma can open many doors.
