One of SBID’s aims is to build a ‘learning to earning’ ethos in interior design education. We are actively involved in the education sector, working with UK universities to create accredited university courses that meet the criteria of the European Council of Interior Architects (ECIA) European Charter of Education. This ensures SBID accredited UK universities offer a degree-level education that develops comprehensive, practical and commercial skills to enhance the employment prospects of its interior design graduates.
