Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be atrracted to the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design activities, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.
Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
Graduates are working as interior designers in design and architectural firms. Many choose to continue their education in design, while many others have set up their own design businesses.
The first two years of the Diploma in Interior Design are common to the BA in Interior Design (Level 7), therefore upon successful completion of Year 2, students can progress directly to the Year 3 of the Level 7 degree course. Not a CAO Course - Fees apply.
