Having graduated BS Civil Engineering and now studying Master of Professional Accounting, ironically, I have always yearned to design. Walking in a room, I would often catch myself mesmerized by how thoughtfully everything was arranged and how everything was detailed (yeah, I wasn't really interested in the designs of columns and beams). I wouldn't have thought that I could do that too...until I found IDI.
While waiting for the application of my accounting course, I decided to pursue my interest in interior design. Researching through several online courses, The Interior Design Institute was what interested me the most--its online study platform allowing flexibility to study at your own pace, its curriculum and course outline, its online community and having your own tutor, so I thought, why not?
Taking this course has been one of the most rewarding and fulfilling experiences I have ever had. It has equipped me with all the technicalities that I wouldn't have learned if I were to just study on my own.From learning the history of design to color theory to making your own 3D visualization of the room, this course has covered all the essentials to become a professional interior designer.
I want to thank the whole IDI community for this amazing opportunity. To my tutor, for helping me throughout the entire course and the constructive feedback in each module; to the IDI Facebook group for the support all the way; and the IDI team behind this course for making this possible.@eartheninteriors
One of the main reasons why I took up this course is because I have always been passionate about design in its many forms. It's what I also studied in college and to extend my knowledge in design, even further, is crucial to me. While our house was being renovated, interior design instantly caught my eye. The construction was fascinating to watch and it just amazes me how you can build or recreate a beautiful space from just the resources around us.
Living in a large city, where the traffic just keeps getting worse and worse, I always find it to be such a hassle and time-consuming when moving from point A to point B.
That's why I am so glad that there's an online platform like The Interior Design Institute. I can study remotely anytime, anywhere! I don’t have to sacrifice my other commitments at all. The course is good quality content at an affordable price too! And honestly, as much as I like going back to school, I'd rather not face Manila traffic every day. I'm sure a lot of students can relate to how I feel! With or without the traffic though I am still a fan of online education and its benefits.
I truly enjoyed each and every module (even the ones on the more difficult side!) and even if there's lots of useful information involved I didn't feel so overwhelmed by it because the content was well-composed. It was easy to learn and understand. The visual aids are also quite pleasing to look at and they were definitely a big help in making my study experience more enjoyable. I like the presence of the social community because it gives me more insights aside from the tutor and the Modules perspective. The Facebook group, was a delight for me, just reading about what’s on other students’ minds and it doesn’t make me feel isolated even when I’m studying remotely. To top it all off, the assignments were also really fun to do. From space planning, making mood boards, to working with clients, the assignments and modules let me discover my own personality and preferences as I go along the creative process of designing. The options for inspiration, truly are limitless.
I’m looking forward to what’s in store for me as I start my career in this industry. I know that it’s always nerve-wracking at first but now I’m more ready for the challenge to apply what I’ve learned in the real world. The course has covered the essentials for one to be competent in the world of interior design. Now, I’m seriously considering taking up the advanced modules as well!
You guys have been a big part in making me fall in love with interior design more and more and so my desire to learn just keeps on growing. I thank you all in this institution for making everything possible and most especially to my tutor, for guiding me in every step of the way. It is such an honour to be able to receive tips and insights from renowned interior designers. To more power and may the force be with you IDI team!
I am very grateful that I have found this online course for Interior Design through The Interior Design Institute. The Modules are very easy to understand for a beginner, like me.
It has kept me occupied for the whole year which I needed to keep myself balanced by doing work, and at the same time, doing what I love, Interior Design.
I learnt a lot from this course, to the basics, creating Floor Plans, Mood Boards, as well as communicating to the Clients effectively.
I am also thankful to my Tutor, Wendi, for helping me, especially with the Assignments, she has been very patient from the first Module up to the last Module.

When I was young, I have always been fond of art, décor, designs and the like; however, I’ve never been able to try and give it a go. I always had an excuse – no time, no money, no support, and not knowing where to start or even how to start.
Up until this point.
I stumbled upon the Interior Design Institute one night and it got me thinking to finally start pursuing something I am passionate about. Trust me, the excuses I told myself before were still there, but as it turns out, this course is the answer to all my prayers. No time? I can do it whenever and wherever I want! No money? I was amazed as how flexible the payment scheme was. No support? I’m at the right age. Not knowing where to start? Here. How to start? Enroll.
And so, I did.
The Interior Design Institute has opened my eyes to a whole new industry. An industry that has evolving for so many centuries and through so many cultures and yet, the course was able to organize 12 comprehensive modules for aspiring designers like me. With the help and the patience of my tutor and fellow IDI students, I was able to gain confidence and the skill to finally pursue my passion. This was a great learning experience while juggling work and life in general.
I highly recommend this course to everyone who has ever doubted themselves and for those people who came up with all the same excuses that I ever made. This is that course. This is what you have been looking for!
Thank you IDI and team for making this a reality.
I actually have a strong background in design since I’m a Graduate of Fine Arts Major in Industrial Design and I’m married to an Architect. As a team, my husband and I work together in designing and building homes so I had to strengthen my competencies in designing Interiors so I can handle that aspect of our services more efficiently.
Because of that need, I went back to school but I only lasted for one semester since I could not really build my world around it again. To compensate, I just try to learn as much as I could online. And that’s when I found The Interior Design Institute.
Yes, we can learn just about anything we want from the world wide web, but to have all the information you “truly need” structured in a professional way through IDI made it so worth it! I especially loved working on the homework and always eagerly waited for the grades. The thrill of that experience is something that you cannot get just by browsing online!
Really, there is that one thing in each of us that needs to be satisfied. Be it a bucket list or that craving to always be better at something, or to learn something new. The point is to find that one thing that sets your soul on fire and finding ways to make it happen. For me, that is finally taking up Interior Design. I couldn’t do it in a traditional school, but I was lucky to stumble upon The Interior Design Institute. I didn’t have to build my world around it, but rather it was able to fit in my world, in my own time, and in my own terms. Distance learning is truly one of the best gifts of technology and IDI will always have that special place in my life.
This online Interior Design course, is an all-inclusive program that has taught me everything I need to know to become a proficient Interior Designer.
I have learnt cutting-edge design and history, furniture trends and textiles, color concept and lighting. There are twelve (12) modules featuring specialized designs that has helped me master the skills necessary to make the most out of any space.
Furthermore, the course has taught me how to work with clients; from costing and agreements to procuring and planning, so that by the time I finished the program, I had the business skills to be an up-and-coming Interior Designer!
It is a remarkable feeling to have fulfilled the Diploma in Interior Design, and I have gained so much applied information, in the process.
This interior design course is well-written and very conversant. I certainly valued my tutor’s criticism and that upkeep was imperative to the entire learning process.
There are no other means that I would have been able to achieve this knowledge and confidence, that the Interior Design course has given me.
Thank you so much, Interior Design Institute!
I’ve always had a passion for design since I was in elementary, especially in the Interior Design field. The style and principles of a house that makes it a home always fascinated me. I took up a computer related course, years have passed and eventually my life has gone into marketing, real estate and construction. My passion for interior design has been made even more rewarding, knowing that I am helping my future interior design clients, but at the same time enjoying the process myself!! 😊
Discovering the Interior Design Institute was one of the best things that happened to me, because it taught me everything I needed to know to develop,not just my skills, but also to enhance my self-esteem. I make sure my calendar was updated/monitored for the whole study, so it taught me great organization skills. It gave me a chance to experience, my passion through reading the Modules which were very precise and well informed. My tutor, the Student Support, as well as my fellow Students, were all very helpful throughout this journey. Each Assignment after every Module were very exciting and so much fun to do. 😊 It was as if I was working on a real project as a Professional Interior Designer.
This course is very affordable and you can study at your own place in your own time while having a coffee 😊

Their dedication to extend their knowledge and passion in Interior Design to aspiring people like me, has moved me and encouraged me to do better, until I reach my goals. I couldn’t be more grateful for this opportunity of turning my dreams into a reality. I'm looking forward to now completing one of the Advanced Modules at the Institute of Interior Design in the near future. 😊
Thank you IDI & Team! 😊
I’ve always had a passion for design since I was a child, especially in the Interior Design field. The style and principles of a house that makes it a home always fascinated me. Years have passed and eventually my life has gone into a different path and lead me to another career. But the crave for designing and decorating has been nagging at me, so I decided to reignite my passion for design.

The Interior Design Institute provides a convenient way to learn about interior design. It gives students the flexibility to study wherever and whenever they have free time. How great is that!
I highly recommended this course.@interiordesands
I never imagined myself doing an online course in my life before. It was hard for me to adjust not hearing a lecture from a teacher, taking exams or passing some projects in school. Although, it made me independent, and this course pushed me to study hard and pursue my dreams without paying a lot of money.
Interior Design Institute made it easy to do this at home. Some assignments are challenging but once you get the hang of it you'll surely enjoy it.
I learned a lot and I will definitely recommend this to friends.
It was a great experience and I thank my tutor, for giving such insightful feedback in every homework I submitted. It truly helped me as a student and i'm sure it will help me as a future designer.
