Training Diploma in Interior Design: Professional Practice

This robust Diploma is a step up from the foundation Interior Design Diploma and allows students to walk straight in to the working world with confidence. Throughout the courses students will cover all facets of computer programming needed in the market. Students will be given documentation, gain supplier lists, learn how to charge, make their own websites and promotional material and more. By the time students receive their Diploma, they will be armed with an eye-catching portfolio and skills required to make them sought after candidates for internships and employment, they will even be able to work with their own private clients. The Designers’ Studio assists many students with opportunities though their industry contacts.

If students successfully complete 10 courses (shown below) with The Designers’ Studio, they will receive a graded Diploma approved by the KHDA. To qualify for a Designers’ Studio Diploma, students will need to complete the following courses:

  • Residential Interior Design Level 1, 2 & 3
  • Commercial Interior Design Level 1
  • Computer programming courses:
                  – SketchUp Level 1
                 – AutoCad Level 1
                 – Photoshop Level 1
  • An additional 4-week course of your choice
  • Project Management
  • Professional Portfolio (Final course)

The internationally recognized Diploma is accredited by the KHDA (Knowledge and Human Development Authority). Certificate courses take four weeks to complete while Diploma courses can be completed within an academic year with course combining. However, the ethos of The Designers Studio is flexible adult education, therefore students can take up to 36 months to complete their studies on Diploma Programmes. By the time students receive their Diploma, they will be armed with an eye-catching portfolio and skills required to make them sought after candidates in the field.

To maximize their grade, it is recommended that they demonstrate competency in all courses. Grades are awarded as follows:

Distinction– Student has shown a consistently excellent standard of work across all areas of design.

Honours– Student has shown a consistently high standard of work across all areas of design.

High Merit – Student has shown a consistently good standard of work across all areas of design.

Students do not have to apply for the Diploma immediately, we have a 30 day conversion offer whereby students are able to take one full course, then make a commitment to the Diploma. This allows students to get to know the studio, tutors, understand the learning and take their time with the decision. Students who do want to convert to a Diploma have two options after 30 days:

1. Bundle Package: The first is to convert to the Diploma Bundle offer (which is a discounted package rate as it is paid in one lump sum). It is the course price deducted from the bundle package offer.

2. Pay as you go: Students can be more flexible with the pay as you go package. You will need to pay a deposit of 2500 AED  at the end of the 30 day period. 1000AED is redeemable against the final Photoshop Portfolio course. Students are then able to pay course by course as they climb the Diploma ladder.

*** Students who do not convert after the 30 day period will not be able to convert to the Diploma. Your intent must be known.
