It was a very informative course. We certainly learnt a lot in 8 weeks. I'm now even more interested in becoming an interior designer.

I think the school is exactly what is needed here in Hong Kong. There is nothing like it at all. The hands-on aspect really takes the learning to another level.

Great class with fun, hands on project! I was really surprised to be able to work with a real client in an introductory class. It really helps with understanding the process and got me thinking like a designer.

I thought it was a very well run course, very informative and great teacher that exhibited a lot of passion. She also gave great creative input. I also liked the last session – the critique at the end was very well structured"

I loved it! Loved, loved! I thoroughly enjoyed coming in every week. I thought that Insight provided a very professional course and in particular the quality of the teachers/trainers was excellent. The space is amazing and most conducive to a creative learning experience. Actively working towards a project for a 'real-life' client greatly added to the enjoyment of learning and I found myself mentally consumed by the process even during the days between the courses. Overall I was thrilled to be part of the first round of students and would highly recommend the course to others.

What I liked the most about the course was the ability of the teachers to encourage you to look for and use your hidden creativity. They also opened my eyes suggesting to look at some old things in a different way!

The programme is very well designed using real life case studies, making learning more fun and relevant. The teacher and teaching faculty are outstanding professionals and provide good technical and aesthetic advice. I had a very enjoyable learning experience and will continue to take more courses with Insight School.

I was so impressed that our very first class was a consultation with a "real" client and that we would spend the next 8 weeks creating a "real" project. The practical application of our weekly classes was invaluable and has secured my decision to pursue my passion as an interior designer. Thanks again for sharing your experience and wisdom with us all!
