The learning and teaching in the Associate Degree in Interior Decoration and Design emulates how you would work in a commercial design and decoration studio. Teachers will interact and work with you as if you are a junior designer.
This associate degree promotes independent learning and inquiry. You’ll learn through lectures, workshops, studios, online learning and industry presentations and briefs and on-site visits. Practical demonstrations may be held in class or in an on-site industry environment. You will acquire a broad range of hands-on skills (rendering, architectural drafting, sketching, perspective drawing, CAD, Revit, model making, Photoshop, client presentation) alongside learning the history and theory of colour and design.
During your studies you will interact with key people from external companies on live projects. This models the consultancy practice of interior design and decorators for client presentations.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester includes concept design development, digital and verbal presentations, reports, groups projects, research and practical tasks.
It is recommended that you have your own computer, but this is not a requirement as students have access to computer labs on campus. Students have access to industry standard software and can purchase these at discounted rates.
All degrees are delivered in English. You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
Blended learning options
Courses offered as part of blended learning programs include a meaningful blend of online, on-campus, and workplace based learning tailored to the type of study you undertake. This learning is active, prioritising tasks that involve exploration and development of skills and knowledge through interaction and engagement.
Online aspects provide positive benefits such as flexibility and adaptability using digital activities and materials, while also strengthening the interaction and connection with timetabled and on-campus experiences such as tutorials, practicals, or workshops.
