SBID is the unequivocal leader in interior design education for practice accreditation. SBID is exclusively government accredited to measure and independently accredit content taught to the next generation of students on a baccalaureate degree course of a UK university.
Furthermore, 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 throughout their education in a number of ways; we facilitate internships, mentoring opportunities and showcase rising talent through our international student competitions, Get Me 2 The Top and Designed for Business. We also promote scholarships and 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.
