Applying for courses at Design School
Application bookings for our upcoming Thursday day class (commencing October 10th) have now opened. 🚩
If you would like to book an application appointment with us, please read all of the material below very carefully and read the instructions on how to contact us with your application preferences..
Please note that applications for future 2020 courses at Design School are not open yet; we are only accepting applications for our October course.
Our Interior Decoration courses require prospective students to undertake an application process, to make sure that you’re the right fit for Design school, and that we’re the right fit for you.
You do not need to have a folio or any prior experience in the design world to apply. We are looking for motivated individuals first and foremost, whom are eager to learn and are prepared to commit themselves to exciting new opportunities.
An application involves: a visit to Design School, a short interview, filling out some paperwork, organising government funding (if applicable) and completing a few basic skills tests in the fields of literacy, numeracy and computer skills.
As part of the application process we also draft a payment plan, but please note that absolutely no money changes hands until you have been offered a place in the course; and then only if you accept it.
Before you book an appointment: (click the following + icons to expand)
Check to see if you would be eligible for government funding for this course
Ensure you're available for the duration of the course
Most courses run for around 13 months from commencement to completion, this includes all scheduled time off class to account for school holidays and public holidays.
It’s expected for students to miss a class here or there, but if you have a lengthy vacation booked during usual school operating terms, or are planning on moving away etc. please reconsider applying for one of our courses at a future date when it’s more suitable for you.
You'll need a basic level of computer skills to be accepted into the course
By no means do you need to be a computer expert, but you do need to know the basics such as:
~ using your internet browser,
~ downloading files & images from the internet, then locating said files once downloaded,
~ copying / pasting / renaming / saving / files
~ ability to use the basics of presentation software (such as, but not limited to: powerpoint, keynote or canva)
~an openness to learning new skills and technology
This is certainly not an I.T course, but we will be utilising the many wonderful functions and shortcuts that technology offers us as part of your learning and your assessments.
Applicants are required to have a minimum level of computer skills to be offered a place in the course.
But most importantly, make sure the course is right for you
Applications for future courses are not yet open. Usually applications are taken a month or two in advance of the course start.
To book an application appointment (once applications open), all you need to do is contact us via email on firstname.lastname@example.org and include the following information:
- Any dates/times you are available to apply from those listed below (the more the merrier)
- Whether or not you are eligible for government funding (as this will alter the application process slightly).
|Available Application Bookings for Thursday Day Course commencing 10th October 2019|
|Applications for our October course have now closed as of the 19th September. Late applications
Appointments will be confirmed by email, and you will receive more details about what identification/materials you'll need to bring along at that time. Application appointments may last between 50 and 70 minutes, so please allow time to complete the process.
Depending upon levels of interest, you may need to share an appointment with another applicant. This should not affect the length of your booking.
Class sizes in total will not exceed 25 students. Should we have an excess of applicants for any one class places will not be offered to those applying first, but rather those with the most promising applications. A completed application does not guarantee you a place in the course.
