COURSE ACCREDITATION

The Institute strongly recommends that a course you choose should be provided by an accredited course provider. Whilst at the time of writing the Institute does not accredit any courses and there is no specialist interior design organisation that assesses or accredits interior design courses or providers of interior design courses, there are other forms of accreditation that can help to inform your decision. We therefore recommend that you choose a course that meets one of the following criteria:

  • An HND, FdA, BA, BSc or MDes in Interior Design/Interior Architecture/Spatial Design offered by a university or college recognised by the UK government.
  • An HND, FdA, BA, BSc, or MDes validated by a university recognised by the UK government but delivered by an independent course provider. Please note the Institute does not have a list of these courses or course providers. The course provider will be able to inform you whether or not their course is validated in this way.
  • A Certificate or Diploma offered by a course provider that is itself accredited by a recognised national accrediting body such as the British Accreditation Council or the Open and Distance Learning Quality Council. Please note the Institute does not have a list of these course providers but your course provider will be able to inform you whether or not their course is validated in this way.


Please note the Institute does not have a list of these qualifications or awarding bodies.
