have a side hustle, the stay at home mums (and dads) who want to
learn how to renovate their own home or prepare themselves for a
refreshing career.

We provide the technical and practical skills necessary to translate

design ideas into reality, and our commitment to providing a quality
training program has resulted in unique teaching and student
support systems that have produced unparalleled results.

Not only is our program unique and interactive, but it’s fun, inspiring
and provides you with the skills to start your own business!


Our online course is made up of 12 written modules and 12
knowledge and skill-based assignments.

You have up to 12 months to complete the course, with the option

to extend if required.

by a highly experienced professional interior designer and educator.

interior designers in the industry.

skills required for a career as a professional interior designer or to

“I found this course to be completely practical, inspiring

and most importantly exactly what you need to know when
starting out your journey in the design industry.

To the highly skilled tutors, easy to navigate online assignment

submissions and the outstanding support and design
community, I really can’t recommend this course enough.”

“ Mary Langley @theacreagehome

After graduating in 2019, Mary used her knowledge

from our course to build her dream home on the Gold
Coast. Long before purchasing the block of land with her
husband, they had always envisioned building something
special, and were particularly drawn to modern Australian
homes. They loved simple, minimalistic designs, that
blended seamlessly into their surroundings.

“The course was comprehensive, challenging and
rewarding! Each module was well thought out, with a
combination of great content and beautiful imagery and
the assignments were challenging yet enjoyable.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking

of pursuing their dream in interiors or even anyone who is
planning to renovate/build their home.”

“ Leanne Abrahams @lilyroseinteriors

Our IDI graduate, Leanne Abrahams, has an amazing eye

for detail and uses the skills she has learned in our course to
produce beautiful domestic spaces.

“My greatest love (apart from my family) is creating beautiful

homes for my clients... what sets me apart as an interior
designer is my hands-on approach to dreaming up gorgeous
family spaces that are affordable and functional.”

In a partnership with UNICEF, we at The Interior Design Institute are donating $5
from each enrolment to the children in the Syria crisis. This money will help to
provide a safe education to the children in war-torn Syria.

Last year UNICEF assisted the education of 2,239,884 Syrian children affected by
war in the region.

Currently, one out of three schools in Syria have been destroyed or rendered
unusable due to the crisis. This, added with the lack of essential learning materials
in the remaining schools, creates a significant barrier to the education of children
in the region.

UNICEF’s aim this year is to assist in providing a formal and safe education for 1.2
million children in Syria. This includes the provision of facilities, school furniture,
qualified teachers, rehabilitation, safe learning environments, and learning

We are very privileged to be working with UNICEF towards this goal.
