After having worked in marketing, I was attracted to the one year course at The Interior Design School. Its condensed curriculum covered every aspect of interior design (space planning, lighting, furniture detailing, materials). The high ratio of teachers to students meant a very personal approach and enabled me to build up a portfolio of work in residential, office and retail design. The course gave me the confidence to effectively change careers and built the skills needed to do so.         Annemarie van Rietgraduate 2000
