SBID is the professional body recognised to accredit the interior design courses of degree awarding universities by the Key Information Set (KIS). We directly support students in a number of ways; we facilitate internships, mentoring opportunities and showcase rising talent through our international student competition, Get Me 2 The Top. We also promote scholarships, other student awards and competitions. SBID is the only UK design destination route to the European Education Charter; it’s linked to eighteen countries in Europe and provides possibilities for student and university exchange as part of the government’s education policy requirement.
The ECIA and SBID aim to further the quality of education in the sector and enhance the exchange of people, services and knowledge. We endorse interior design university courses that meet the criteria of the European Charter of Education (ECIA) through accreditation. SBID is the only approved and authorised destination in the UK to provide this course accreditation.
