Complimentary Online Study morning

Why not explore a new career with the Complimentary Online Study morning?

Here at Inchbald we understand the hesitation felt by those embarking on a new career and how the move into such a creative profession is bound to intensify these feelings particularly if studying online. As there are so many mixed messages about who and what comprises a garden or interior designer, the School provides the opportunity to spend a virtual morning with Inchbald, in order to experience what it is like to study online with us, giving you the opportunity to explore not only the reality but also the possibilities.

Led by the Interior and Garden Design Faculty Directors, Alan Hughes and Andrew Duff, this morning gives an insight into the life of a garden and interior designer. Alan and Andrew will begin to teach you to see things differently, and actually start to look! If you are thinking about training to be a garden or interior designer and wish to study online, then this informal morning allows you to ask questions and discuss this most rewarding career.
