Alen SafrankoProduct: Course is amazing! Proper way to get into Interior Design world! Highly recommended!
Service rating : I am happy so far but have only submitted 2 assignment s and cannot comment further at this stageProduct: Resources for first 2 assignments have been very helpful but there is a gap in assignment 3, very few guidelines to help with rendering skill. That is my experience so far
Service rating : Responses to questions are quick and feedback on assignments is detailed.Product: It would be helpful to have some options for face to face networking/meeting up with other home study students
Service rating : The Academy are brilliant to deal with - couldn't be more helpful - thank you!Product: The course is excellent - my tutor is so helpful, knowledgeable & approachable. I'm really enjoying my course.The website is a brilliant resource & is easy to get around & find what I'm looking for. Delighted that I picked the IDAI for my course.
Service rating : Very nice people and prompt serviceProduct: The one thing i think is lacking is more computerised experience--you would also need to to a CAD/Sketchup course. And believe them when they tell you the hours to allow, i thought they were imagining how much commitment it is but the assignments are a big time commitment.
Service rating : Very professional, and prompt with replies.Product: Course is good so far, challenging.
Service rating : Friendly and patientProduct: I think you learn a lot.I do think you are thrown in the deep end but a challenge is good
Service rating : Couldn't have asked for better! All my queries were instantly dealt with in a very helpful and professional manner. Thank you!Product: Excellent course. I found it both interesting & extremely informative. I would highly recommend the course to any one considering a career in Interior Design.
Service rating : It is good and pleasant :)Product: It will be great if you can provide us with rendering lesson, even with one technique only.
Service rating : Emails are always sent promptly and the information is always well-laid outProduct: The course is very good, very intense! It could be slightly more organised in terms of what people are supposed to bring each week. I would also suggest the Academy to create a starter pack of essential materials for each student and say "the starter pack is €100 (for example) will be provided for you should you choose this option; if not we have a list of all the items you need". There seem to be some items that are on the list, which are actually not necessary for the course.. the tutors were amazed that we had bought some of the items (which were not cheap!) and told us we didnt need them and that they have never used them (i.e. Furniture template)
Other than that, the course is good, I really enjoy it, the tutors are excellent.
Work on the time management of the day's schedule, maybe introduce a starter pack for new students (you could prob get a bulk discount from cork art supplies on a sale or return basis and then everyone would have the same items - cuts out a lot of explaining and messing!) and maybe set some small deadlines for the first few assignments as it's very easy to let 2 months go by with nothing done!
Keep up the good work!
