This is a 2 year, full-time program.
This program focuses heavily on industry-led, real client projects. This approach mirrors the consultancy practice of interior decorators and designers with clients and stakeholders in industry.
Second year students have the opportunity to enter a variety of competitions including the Design Institute of Australia Graduate of the Year Awards.
Graduates of the program are work-ready due to the amount of exposure they have to industry projects, scholarships, competitions, industry networks and mentors.
Students are expected to attend 20 hours of classes over four days and undertake a minimum of 20 hours extra study and research weekly. Concentrated periods of self-directed learning are often required out of class hours when assessments are due.
You’ll study residential briefs to develop your understanding of:
- architectural views
- space planning
- decorative arts and contemporary interior style.
Visual technology and communication skills underpin the presentation aspects of working as a designer/decorator. You will work with computer-aided design (CAD), Photoshop and other industry-standard software.
You will deepen your knowledge of residential and commercial briefs. Sustainability underpins the approach to all projects including lighting, soft furnishings, colour, interior building materials and techniques.
You'll develop your 3D visualisation and modelling skills to produce detailed and accurate spatial documentation.
You'll also hone your presentation skills in design practice studios for both concept and finished presentations and engage with experienced professionals through the industry-mentoring program.
