I really didn’t expect it to be so amazing. I've built up a great portfolio so I can show what I'm able to produce. The course helped me to set up my own business because I've learned so much.

The Academy is absolutely brilliant - the support is amazing, the tutors are fantastic. I would definitely recommend this course to other people. It provides great flexibility and a fantastic avenue to express your creativity.

Honor Bates

I applied myself to the course 110 percent, graduated, and then got a job. The course is the reason I got the job because I took all my work and showed it to somebody that has a design studio and she loved every single piece.

What does interior design meant for me? It's all about being creative - helping people visualise the potential of a room and bringing it together into something that they like.
