The Student Experience

client board"I started off pursuing my bachelor in education, however after one year decided my interests lay in design and in particular interior design. It was through a lot of research that I picked and enrolled in the Diploma of Interior Design at AICD. I started not knowing exactly what to expect of the course, but was pleased to spend the first 6 months understanding core elements and principles of design.

The next 6 months was putting this into practice and into more industry focused scenarios and working on things like client briefs and presentation boards. Through client briefs I found my career path, which is redesigning and redecorating residential homes. The practical approach of the course, including excursions and teachers experience has cemented my knowledge of the industry. Apart from learning the best part has been meeting new people and creating new friendships."

—Margie Rose, Interior Design graduate.
