As an alternative to flexible online study our live ‘In-Studio’ Course Diploma in Professional Interior Design allows you to join other like-minded design enthusiasts for a more hands-on and collaborative approach to learning. Working with a client brief, you will work on an array of skills to take you from concept stage, through to design development and final proposal stage for a residential project.

With these skills, you will be able to tackle your own projects more professionally, start your own business or enter the interior design industry with the practical knowledge required to work with potential clients.

You’ll also learn how to establish industry contacts, where to source materials, samples, furniture, lighting and start to build a design community with your peers.

Whilst receiving hands-on advice directly from our highly experienced NDA Tutors, the In-studio course brings together a fantastic mix of students, helping to create an exciting, friendly and dynamic class and the chance to share ideas with fellow up and coming designers.

I would recommend anybody with a willingness to study Interior Design to consider the National Design Academy. The tutor support is fantastic and it is a great way to gain qualifications without having to put the rest of your life on hold.

The Diploma course consists of 1 week in-studio (Mon-Fri) followed by a six week home study project (around 40 hours) then a second week in-studio (Mon-Fri); meaning students can complete their diploma in as little as eight weeks!

We are passionate about delivering high-quality courses to our students, and we believe that students learn faster in smaller groups, which is why we cap the number of students who can attend each course.
