Kane Chilton, top right, and Astrid Jeppesen, bottom left, are recent graduates of the New Zealand Diploma in Interior Design.

The New Zealand Diploma in Interior Design (Residential)(external link) is a one-year, full-time programme that allows ākonga to delve deep into their design practice whilst providing the essential foundations for success in the industry.

During their final presentations, ākonga feel well supported by their peers and their tutors, as they speak about the process that went into their final work.

Sarmya Clayton, tutor for the programme, enjoys the community she can create with her students throughout the year.

“It is a perfect example of how our students grow and thrive,” she said.

Kane Chilton chose to study at Te Pūkenga NMIT because it was local. He enjoys the practical side of putting a room together and has gained invaluable skills for his future.

“I have really loved it,” he said, “I couldn’t have asked for better classmates.

Astrid Jeppesen used to be a landscaper and felt that if she was able to provide a full service of interior and exterior design, it would enhance her employment options.

“I am enjoying having creative outlets and helping people evolve their spaces,” she said.

Enrolments are open for our February 2023 intake for the New Zealand Diploma in Interior Design. Take a look at our website(external link) for more information.
