WELCOME TO DCE
CHALLENGE
YOUR PERCEPTIONS,
ENRICH YOUR PERSPECTIVE
AND EXCITE YOUR
IMAGINATION
Interior designers and interior decorators create the spaces in which we live, work,
learn, relax and socialise. Succeeding in these fields requires a mix of research and
practice, creativity and technical skills.
At the Design Centre Enmore (DCE) we prepare students to excel in these fastpaced and highly imaginative professions. Our graduates gain the skills and
knowledge required to design innovative spaces that respond to human needs and
enhance our quality of life.
We believe that being able to push boundaries to improve our world through better
design is the most critical skill that students develop at DCE. And our emphasis
on one-on-one feedback, small class sizes, real-world projects and professional
skills ensures that when you graduate, you’ll be ready for a rewarding career in a
fascinating and constantly evolving industry.
In the following pages you can read about the three courses we offer, which are all
geared towards preparing you for an exciting career as a professional designer:
• Bachelor of Design (Interior Design)
• Advanced Diploma of Interior Design
• Diploma of Interior Design and Decoration
It’s also important to understand that becoming a professional designer takes
many hours of study and hard work. Studying with us will challenge your
perceptions, enrich your perspective and excite your imagination. We’re here
to help you develop the skills, knowledge and creative confidence you need to
succeed.
If you want more information on any of our courses or the application process,
please get in touch. You’ll find our contact details on the back cover.
We look forward to seeing you at DCE!
