Course Description

Interior Design QQI level 5



At Coláiste Dhúlaigh we are offering a 1 Year portfolio in Interior Design. The course is tailored to introduce students to the world of 3D design including commercial and domestic Interior Design, visual merchandising, furniture, lighting and many other facets of 3D Design. The interior design course is based in the Raheny Campus, which is home to all of our art and design courses.

Students gain valuable experience working on live projects, industry workshops and competitions. Work placement is encouraged throughout the course and we work with the Erasmus programme to send students abroad on work placement.

At Coláiste Dhúlaigh we ensure students have access to current industry standard software and equipment. We have small class sizes and we design a timetable that facilitates a high level of contact time with tutors. We have top of the range colour printing and plotting and all students will receive a design pack with materials needed to work on projects throughout the course.

Every two years, we organise a design education  excursion to European cities like Berlin and Barcelona.
