Transforming interior design education

SBID directly support students in a number of ways. We facilitate internships, mentoring opportunities and showcase rising talent through our own student competition, Get Me to the Top. We also promote scholarships and other student awards and competitions.

We are passionate about bridging the gap between learning and earning and also independently accredit university courses that meet the criteria of the European Charter of Education (ECIA). Through this pre-eminent status for interior design in UK and Europe, the ECIA and SBID jointly aim to further the quality of education in the sector and enhance the exchange of people, services and knowledge. SBID is the only approved and authorised destination in the UK to provide this course accreditation.
