About

History

Founded in 2004, the Interactive Design Institute has grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of accredited online courses in creative subjects.

Since 2008, we’ve been a partner of the University of Hertfordshire, adapting some of their most popular design degrees for online delivery – in that time we’ve enrolled over 1000 online students from more than 70 countries around the world.

Education

In partnership with the University of Hertfordshire, IDI offers a range of degree courses in creative subjects at both undergraduate and postgraduate level – including Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design and Photography.

It’s our mission to give everyone the opportunity to get their degree in a creative subject, without having to attend on-campus. Key to our success is our understanding that students studying online require more support, not less.

Our focus on maintaining high standards of online tuition and support continues to produce results. In the most recent academic year 73% of our undergraduate students gained a 2:1 or above,and 87% of our Masters graduates achieved commendation or distinction.

Career

At IDI we’re passionate about helping our students fulfill their creative potential, and many of our graduates have gone on to great success in a wide variety of roles: Art Directors, freelance designers, digital illustrators, lecturers, producer/directors, founders of graphic and interior design firms and many, many more.

We also give our students the opportunity to enter live award briefs and international student design awards as part of their studies, with past IDI students enjoying success in competitions such as the D&AD Awards, Adobe Achievement Awards and more.
