Project Management – The Designers' Studio

Project Management

Project Management


This course is for interior designers that would like to understand the processes of managing a project on their own and promoting their business. Whilst we must note all companies have their own processes, when taking on a full interior design project without support, one must follow certain processes to complete a project successfully. Throughout this course templates will be given on all topics mentioned below, real project files will be shared as well as recommended suppliers.

Internship & Work

The Designers’ Studio runs an active Internship Programme whereby we collaborate with several interior design companies and showrooms such as Pottery Barn, Ethan Allen, Crate and Barrel to name a few. The end goal of our training is to secure work in the industry for our graduates and we actively facilitate this. Work shadowing is organised for top students during holiday breaks. Great care is taken to match the student’s aspirations and abilities with a suitable practice.
