The Key Information Set (KIS) was launched in 2012 to provide prospective students with statistics on courses at universities and colleges with a measured outcome from a wide survey analysis of course effectiveness and value.
SBID is the recognised body for interior design education and has been duly accredited to measure courses and accredit content for universities who are directly empowered by the government to provide a Batchelor of Arts (BA) and Masters baccalaureate degree in the category of Interior Design, Interior Architecture and Interior Decoration.
You might say that KIS acts as an accreditation survey of customer and provider data gathered from the NSS and the DLHE as well as information provided by individual universities and colleges and students on higher education courses. This broadly collated data provides accurate statistics as a guide to help potential students make an informed decision when selecting a destination to study a degree. The statistics measure outcomes. The information includes five key areas of data for potential students when choosing a course:
The KIS statistics also provide information on student continuance of courses, providing statistics on course numbers such as when a course commences, drop out numbers throughout the year and course results achieved. This overall analysis of courses, student course participation and industry accreditation provides a close up measurement including peer opinion of individual course success over a variety of measures.
SBID is the recognised professional body for accreditation of interior design courses to the Key Information Set (KIS).
We look at course content, it’s relevance for the broader industry, innovation, creativity and employers expectations of basic knowledge in the workplace. Graduating with an interior design degree from an accredited course recognised by the professional body of pre-eminence provides prospective employers with the comfort that knowledge content is fit for purpose.
All SBID recognised courses provide free membership for students including one year post graduation membership, a fifty per cent fee reduction in year two in the workplace leading into full accreditation as a professional-work-experienced interior designer commencing year three.
This accredited status opens the route to international practice, professional indemnity insurance and life long learning and guidance in the profession of interior design.
