Interior Design Online Learning - Professional Diploma Course

Flexible study options: You can register for one course Unit at a time, for one year at a time, or for the full Diploma Course (three years). There are also several opportunities to study Units simultaneously or in any order.

This professional online interior design course includes tutorial supervision: for each Unit you will be assigned a tutor who will provide feedback and advice as required, and will grade all of your assignments.

This is the right option for you if wish to be trained to a professional standard - you can graduate in three years or less.

This professional online interior design course trains you to know, understand and put into practice the essentials of professional interior design.

The personal nature of the training is particularly helpful, and your studies with our fully illustrated study materials will be highly enjoyable.

The Online Interior Design Diploma Course comprises ten individual Units: see the detailed list of subjects.

The Diploma Course materials are presented as separate pdf files for each lesson and test, which are downloaded and viewed as you progress through the course. You are able, if you wish, to download all pdfs for an entire online Unit as soon as you have access to that Unit. Answers to tests are uploaded using standard file formats: pdf, ppt or zip.

On registration for a Unit or block of Units we will assign you a tutor and grant you to access that Unit or block of Units online using our dedicated VLE (Virtual Learning Environment). Click the image above left for a large screenshot of the VLE in action.

Your success in the Professional Online Diploma Course in Interior Design will be measured partly by continuous assessment of your work during the course and partly by the Final Test. This will evaluate your achievement over the whole course. We don't anticipate that you'll memorize all the material you read in our courses. Interior design work doesn't depend on how much information you can cram into your memory, but on whether you can apply the principles involved in any future design. Nor do we believe that interior design is a subject in which a student should be examined behind the closed doors of an examination room.

We want to simulate as far as possible the conditions under which a designer will work, so the Final Test is based on design projects which will be carried out under office conditions (in your own office or your home used as an office) and will then be submitted to Rhodec representing the client. In this way you'll be gaining practical experience of how work is carried out in a professional design studio, and any problems you encounter in running an office can be unravelled with our help.

Diploma Course Model Answers

We appreciate that it can be quite a leap to take on a major new course of study, especially 100% online when this delivery system may be new to you.

With this in mind, you will have access to at least one "model answer" for every single Diploma Course assignment.

All these model answers were submitted by actual former Rhodec Diploma students who uploaded their own work to the VLE as they progressed through the Diploma Course and who have given permission for their work to be reproduced.

While not necessarily flawless, these model answers are of a very high standard and as such provide an excellent indication of the quality and volume of work that your tutor will be looking for in your own assignments.

You should not become too disheartened if your own work doesn't meet these standards: few students will produce work of "Model Answer" quality, so do bear in mind that these examples are given in order to encourage rather than to intimidate.

We appreciate that you may have many questions about our course, and with this in mind we have prepared an extensive FAQ.
