Certificate course in Interior Design

The certificate course in Interior Design is an introduction into the fascinating world of Interiors. It acts as an introduction course for budding enthusiasts and is a great course if you just need a bit more knowledge in order to tackle your own home or a new build.

The classroom-based certificate course covers the same topics as the home study course but with the added benefit of live classes conducted by our expert tutors. This blended learning approach ensures that you receive the optimum support and knowledge with the least amount of disruption to your working schedule.

The classroom-based certificate course takes place over a two month period with either three full-day Saturday classes from 09:30 to 16:30 or six Thursday evening classes from 18:30 to 21:00.

Throughout the course you will complete five practical assignments. Our aim is for students to receive as much guidance and support during the tutorials as possible so that they will be able to plan their assignments in class and complete them at home.

You can choose to enrol for either the Thursday evening or full-day Saturday classes in Dublin (University College Dublin).

Deadline for enrolment: 12th of December 2017.
