In this module, you'll choose your own live project for an existing client or an imaginary project of your choice such as a boutique hotel, shop or residential property, and build on the knowledge gained in Modules One and Two. Expect to sharpen your drawing, presentation, analytical skills and gain practical advice on how to carry out a professional interior design assignment, as well as develop your understanding of interior design's technical and professional demands. Please note that this course requires dedication; students should therefore allow time to work on their project outside of the class.
You'll have learnt how to confidently take a project all the way from the brief to appointing a builder. In addition, you'll have learnt how to set up a design practice, work with contractors and look for a job, giving you a strong base for embarking or building on your career.

'Intensive and productive. Well organised.' - Anon.
'After I had completed Module Three – the designer that I was interning for hired me full time, and I'm still working with the team! Since then, I have been very busy working on large-scale residential projects all over the world, as well as developing a private lighting and furniture collection.' - Eleanor Busing
'I managed to get a job as an interior designer while I was studying. I worked in the company for 2 years after the course and have now set up my own company now with couple of projects in London, Korea and Kuala Lumpur; I am focusing more on high-end residential projects at the moment. These courses provided me with EVERYTHING I needed to be an Interior Designer - it has been an amazing journey for me.' - Saemi Kim
