Interior Design

Course Overview

With modules that equip you with 2D and 3D techniques, this course develops your professional skills in interior design. College activities at Raffles are not just limited to the classroom. You can also attend field trips where you can explore exhibitions of successful interior designers and even modern architecture.

As an interior designer, you will learn how to create suitable environments for places like homes, offices, and other places where people visit or stay in. Space is your canvas. The Interior Design advanced diploma course prepares you to use software like AutoCAD and also create scaled models with workshop machinery – not only that – you will learn to make your own bespoke furniture too! Many students chose to pursue their Interior Design bachelor's and master's degree to qualify themselves for better jobs.
