Interior Design Is Now Available At UCOL’s Whanganui Campus

14 March 2013

Interior Design Is Now Available At UCOL’s Whanganui Campus.

For the first time, Whanganui people with an interest in interior design can study for a professional qualification locally.
UCOL is offering the Diploma in Interior Design Level 5 at Whanganui UCOL, with the first course due to start on 8 April. The Diploma in Interior Design programme covers all aspects of residential interior design, including: colour, the history of interior design, furnishings, drafting, CAD, design theory, ergonomics, kitchen and bathroom design, building technology, materials, finishes and lighting.
Students will also learn about what’s involved in a professional design practice. Graduates may find work as self-employed design consultants, as consultants in retail outlets or as a consultant for architects, spec-house builders and kitchen designers.

The Head of UCOL’s School of Photography, Arts and Design, Rachel Hoskin, says: “For this first programme at Whanganui UCOL, we will spreading the programme over two years, with class times that fit in with people who may be working but want to gain an Interior Design qualification.

“Interested people should sign up as soon as they can. After two years, we’ll review the programme and the demand for it in Whanganui. ” she says.
Rachel expects strong interest in the programme. “This is a region with a lot of civic and home-making pride, fine buildings and a strong interest in design. This is an opportunity for Whanganui people to turn that interest into a career.”
She says the programme should appeal to school leavers with a flair for design, people who run their own business or who want to run their own business, and people employed in the industry. Others may do the programme out of personal interest.

Enrolments are now open for the Diploma in Interior Design programme. Go to www.ucol.ac.nz or phone 0800 GOUCOL for more information.
