How does Brexit change the position for SBID Members?
In short, it doesn’t change at all.
We remain in Europe because that is where the UK is geographically located and that can not be changed. In trading terms with the European Council of Interior Architects (ECIA), nothing will alter. We will remain the British representative body for interior design to Europe, beside our friends from countries such as Switzerland; who like us are not part of the European Union but sit alongside countries such as Germany, who are.
SBID remains the link for all universities within the UK to connect with European universities within the ECIA member countries. This pre-eminent position provides access to the European Education Charter and the education exchange program.
SBID accredits and promotes courses at universities directly empowered to issue a Bachelor Degree only. This promotes the highest standard of Interior Design education in the UK for a global market place.
