Frequently Asked Questions

INTERIOR DESIGNER’S BUSINESS SCHOOL

How much is the program?

It is £600 pounds in total.

Is there a payment plan?

Yes, £200 each month.

Where is the program based or is it available online?

The program is an online program with videos, webinars and workbooks. Once you sign up you will get a special link to access the material (released weekly). Saturday morning calls are for answering questions, discussions and working through specific problems. There is also a private Facebook group for support.

How long is the program?

The program is a 90 day (3-month course).

How much time will the program require each week?

If you were hoping to just do the bare minimum, which is return the homework modules and attend the live calls then you would get through the program with about an hour a day. If you cannot commit to this time, you will have lifetime access to the course content and recorded calls.

The program has been created so that you can not only set up and put in place all of the things you need to start your career as an interior designer but also learn the things you need in your new career in a practical way. This should be fun and exciting and if you are serious about setting up your new career you will be motivated to work on the material.

Do I need to be UK based?

No, the course is structured in a way that means you can work from anywhere in the world. If you have any particular concerns, please do get in touch.

What can I expect from the program?

You can expect to learn everything you need to know about how to set up and run a business in interior design or start working as a freelance interior designer (for yourself or someone else). This is valuable for you if you don’t want to undertake an evening course at a college or undertake prolonged work experience working in an interior design firm. This isn’t a decor course.

The program is set out in a way that you should be able to start taking on clients or start work for an interior designer by the end of the 90-day program (earlier depending on where you are at and how steep your learning curve is).

Do I need to have experience or previous project examples to start the course?

You don’t need to have previous project experience but having an established career or degree in another field is beneficial to success.

I want to work in commercial interiors is this still suitable?

Yes, but please do specify what kind of projects you are likely to work on so that we can make sure the content is suitable for you.

I have a specific style and look that I want to build my career around. Are you experienced in different styles of design?

Every educated designer is experienced in different styles of design. This course has been created to help you develop your style, but to give you the knowledge you need to provide intelligent solutions for your clients.

What is the deadline for signing up?

The deadline for this round is the Wednesday 28th of February 2018. You will need to fill in a questionnaire that also needs to be returned by this date.

I can’t start this course right now, will there be another round and if so when is the next course starting?

I run this course 3 times a year. If you would like to get on the waiting list for the next program or would like to ask more questions please leave your details below.
