Course Feature: Interior Design - Modules 1, 2 and 3
Interior Design – Module One
This course is the starting point of the programme, you do not need any experience of interior design as you will be taught everything you need to start on your interior design journey. At the beginning of the course you will be introduced to a project brief – this brief will form the basis of a residential project that you will undertake during the course.
Each week your tutor will introduce you to new skills and techniques covering all the essentials including; concept boards, drawing plans and elevations and bubble diagrams. You will also have lectures on hard finishes, soft furnishings, model making, lighting, colour and sourcing materials. As you begin to finalise your designs you will also learn about mounting and labelling before presenting your finished project in week 12.

If the dates we have available don’t suit your schedule, you may choose Introduction to Interior Design – Part 1 and Introduction to Interior Design – Part 2 instead. These two courses, taken consecutively, will teach you the same content as Interior Design – Module One. Each course it taught over 10 evenings or 5 days, during which you will work through a carefully designed project covering all essential skills, just as in Module One.
Interior Design – Module Two
Following a similar structure to Module One, this course will take your knowledge and skill set to the next level. You will focus on a commercial project by designing a bar or restaurant. These new skills will encompass surveying, detail drawing, designing staircases and one-point perspective drawing. There will be a range of new considerations to make whilst designing for a commercial space including fire regulations and disabled access.
By week 12, when you present your finished project, you will have solidified and built on the skills acquired during Module One. You will have a new-found confidence in your designs and the ability to present these professionally.
Did you know…
Digital CAD drawing is not taught during the module courses, as it is essential students have confidence and a fundamental understanding of how to undertake technical drawing by hand first. This also means you will have all the skills to design and communicate your ideas to clients without needing to invest in software after you complete the programme.
If you are intending to work for an Interior Design company it may be a good idea to take a stand-alone CAD course during this module. Courses such as AutoCAD for Interior Designers or Vectorworks, are desirable if your planning to undertake an internship or work in a design studio.
