SCQF Level 4
Art and Design

Course Overview

Introduction to Interior design 2 is designed for adults or school pupils with a keen interest in this subject or beginners with little or no Interior Design experience who would like to develop skills and understanding in this area.

You will be introduced to the principles of Interior Design in response to a Design brief and is suitable for new students and those progressing on from Introduction to Interior Design 1.

Interior design involves more than scatter cushions and soft furnishings. You will develop artistic ability and a feel for a space and an eye for light and colour. Interior design is all about creating functional spaces in commercial and residential buildings. As an interior designer, you will design new, or renovate old spaces to improve functionality. You will be involved in considering structural changes, lighting, fixtures and fittings and furnishings to produce design outcomes on the course.

This course will ensure you are well prepared to progress onto study at a higher level at Art College or on one of our Full-Time courses in the School of Art and Design at Edinburgh College.


The majority of our courses will be delivered online only for the beginning of 2021. A limited number of courses will have classes on campus. You will be contacted by your lecturer if your course will include any face-to-face classes on campus.
