The Home Design Institute ( team are passionate about education. Their mission is to provide the best synchronous online education to help all students make their dream job a reality. 

All courses take place in online classrooms, allowing students the opportunity to better themselves from any location in the world. These courses are designed per licensed programs, and their certificates are recognised across the European Union. 

Furthermore, industry professionals are at the helm of these courses: to ensure that you truly learn from the best in the business. 

Why choose online learning? 

Today’s business world is all about side hustles. Enrolling for online learning not only takes you one step closer to your dream job, but it also allows you to pursue other passions outside of the classroom while you work towards obtaining your qualification. 

Plus, online learning offers tremendous flexibility. Remember: life happens. If you can’t make one of your classes with the Home Design Institute, you can always catch up at a later stage. 

Online learning also prepares you well for a possible future career as a freelancer. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, more and more businesses are opting for remote work. As an online student, you will develop the necessary skills and self-discipline to flourish as a freelance or at-home employee.  

Which free courses do you offer? 

As mentioned before, the Home Design Institute is passionate about education, which is precisely why we offer two free courses: Interior Design Fundamentals and Landscape Design for Beginners.

We want you to kickstart your learning process without the burden of immediate payment. During our free courses, you will also get a taste of what it’s like to study with the Home Design Institute. 

Although free, these courses are still designed according to high education standards of the institute, and you’ll be attending real-time online classes with experienced lecturers that work within the industry. 

Want to obtain a certificate? That’s no problem! Once you have completed your free online course, you will have the option of purchasing access to a final exam. Once you have successfully passed the exam, you will receive an online certificate to add to your portfolio. This is for as little as  €85 and remains entirely optional.
