    One way is to research the different types of degrees and decide which one will be best for you based on the type of internships or programs they offer, the location where it's possible to study (study abroad), how long it takes to get your degree, and other factors that are important to you. Another option is applying for an online program if those are available. In any case, there are many ways people learn about design without taking a traditional approach like going through college.

    1. Take courses in architecture or design at the college level
    2. Be sure to visual basic programming language skills as this is the language most interior designers use.
    3. Study sketching and renderings
    4. Consider painting and decoration classes such as wallpaper, stencils, etc.
    5. Consider taking business courses that will allow you to market your work effectively (marketing analytics, marketing strategies).
    6. Build a strong portfolio with examples of furniture pieces you have designed - both digitally rendered and physically made make great visuals for hiring agents looking for designers with a variety of experience levels who are willing to take on different challenges such as designing a chair from start to finish, packaging an entire room's design etc.

    It is advisable to finish a formal college level design course and then pass the IDC or NCIDQ exam.
    The NAAB accredited interior design degree (either two-year or four-year) is usually taken in addition to prerequisite arts courses, such as fine arts, industrial and graphic design, basic science starting with biology then chemistry lab work (or physics), art history or visual culture. A certificate program can be completed in 12 months that teaches basics of drawing and 3D thinking along with architecture history.

    There are a number of ways to learn interior design without any formal education, if you're determined enough! You can start with an online course or self-study book. Use your bedsheets for curtains and fixateurs on the back to hang them. Work in your living room as a film production set; rent it out, too. Finally, strike up a conversation with staff at local stores looking for designers that don't have an education. Show them your portfolio and see what they think.

    It typically takes five years to get a bachelor's degree in interior design from an accredited university. The degree is based off of training in architecture and includes design, drawing, math, psychology, and management courses. Students do everything from sketching furniture and carpets to developing commercial retail store designs for small projects to consulting on industrial projects.
