Course overview

The Certificate in Interior Design (Level 1) Residential is a training course focused on both the architectural and decorating aspects of interior design. Available full or part time, it is the first of two programs in our Professional Diploma in Interior Design.

In this course, you will learn every aspect of the residential interior design process, from the client brief through to design implementation, and graduate with the necessary skills and knowledge to complete an interior design project.

Focusing on two real-world projects (one on interior architecture, one on interior decorating), you will get the chance to interview clients, survey sites, and present your final project to them, giving you a deep understanding of what it’s really like to be an interior designer.
With access to Insight School’s industry contacts, you’ll also be able to develop and expand your network and tap into potential future employers.

I was a former banker and choose Insight to help me with my career change when I decided to take over the family property business. The course surpassed my expectations! I am already applying lessons learned at Insight bringing our property projects to another level.

At Insight I learnt that creativity is not just a random crazy thought, there is actually a logic sequence behind it, to develop and arrive at the creative idea.

The course last year gave me a real kick start -- studying art history, style references, form and function, software etc etc -- all of that was useful in getting me to stay alert and switched on.
