During the course you embark on an exciting study of the history of interior design whilst learning about the most important concepts and features of the practice. You’ll also be getting ‘hands on’ along the way to prepare you fully for the real world of interior design!

This creative and practical course from Cambridge Open College provides masses of information and guidance on the subject. It ensures your proficiency and success in all core areas, and successful completion results in the award of an Endorsed Qualification under Focus Awards’ FQP (Focus on Quality Provision) Scheme.


The Interior Design course comprises five foundational units, all of which have been constructed to give students the necessary understanding and skills to further their practice of Interior Design.

Each unit is unique. While the first unit explains the background and principles of Interior Design, Units 2 and 3 research the fundamental or underpinning concepts of Design Elements and Room Elements.

From space and scale to furniture and fabrics, these units ensure students develop an intelligent and informed awareness of the various elements that influence interior design.

Alongside this theoretical approach, the course provides insight into the practicalities of the discipline. By undertaking your own projects, you gain an understanding of the step-by-step processes necessary to create inspiring Interior Design. You also learn important specifics in relation to what you need to make a living from interior design, giving you a realistic and practical success path to follow.


Applicants do not require any previous experience within the field of Interior Design and candidates from a variety of backgrounds are suitable. Whether you’ve just finished school or fancy a change of career, this excellent course is available to you.
