Normally you would expect to be dedicating on average about 4-6 hours per week for 24 weeks. However, many students take up to one year to complete their studies because of family or work commitments.

Signing up for the Interior Design Institute is, by far something incredibly important to me. I have been struggling with mental health issues that stop me from doing things I love and are passionate about, and going to college was one of them. So an online course became a path that I was interested in, and I stumbled upon this course and couldn't be happier!
