This interior design course gives you the opportunity of being your own boss and working from home.

Work opportunities for trained interior designers are everywhere. You can operate your own business, work freelance or seek assignments in design or architectural consultancies, in department and furniture stores, hotel and restaurant chains, antique dealers, furniture and textile manufacturers, as well as in display and merchandising.
