Accreditation from academic leaders
The Interior Design Academy and the Professional interior Design Course are approved with the International Accreditation & Recognition Council (IARC). Click here to view our listing.
The IARC provides a recognition and accreditation system, for distinguishing quality post secondary education, including vocational education, distance education, adult and continuing education.
IARC works with participating institutions across the world including the United States, Europe, Asia and Australasia. This accreditation brings recognition of the Academy having met criteria in the areas of administration, course content, and course delivery and student assessment.
Our interior design school is also recognised throughout the industry as providing appropriate training for the field of professional interior design. In fact, many of Australia’s leading interior designers are contributors to the Course.
Although our interior design school is not accredited with the ASQA, the international recognition and accreditation that this course offers serves both our local and international students. In this way, this interior design course allows students to use their internationally recognised accreditation both locally and abroad – which as an interior designer, is incredibly useful.
About the IARC
The IARC are a private organisation that is made up by members in the pursuit of better education standards for all. The board members put their names and reputations on the line with each and every course they approve so though they are not governed by an official organisation such as a government education department, it could be fair to say they are more invested in ensuring quality than your average government organisation.
Learn the skills needed to create beautiful spaces. Our interior design course can show you how.
Qualification required to work as an interior designer
Interior design is actually an unregulated industry. This means that you need not have any professional qualification or memberships to official (or non-official) bodies or associations in order to work in the industry. Many professional interior designers are self-taught or simply have a natural flair. You will find what you ‘can do’ is far more highly regarding in the industry than any qualification you can obtain. People want to see skills demonstrated more than a piece of paper recognising some a qualification.
It is for this reason that our interior design course is intensely focused on the practical side of interior design. The assignments you complete throughout this interior design course will go a long way towards forming the backbone of your professional portfolio that you will then be able to show to potential clients and employers in the future.
