Interior Design Short Courses in the Philippines

Save

Interior designers in the Philippines need a bachelor’s degree. According to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, interior designers must pass the Interior Design Board Exam, administered by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC). Most Philippine schools offer interior design as a four-year course. Short courses are limited, but available ones give prospective designers initial experience and professional competence to take the licensing exam.

PSID Basic Course

  • Since 1967, the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) has offered the Basic Course in Interior Design, for students with interest in the field, but no prior experience. This one-year program leading to a certificate course, familiarizes the student with methods and tools. It also provides deeper appreciation of the aesthetics involved in design and the application of decorating principles in various design requirements.
