I studied at KLC in 2012, going for the full time Certificate as a way to start my reconversion to interior design. The course is incredibly good, as thorough as can be, packed with practical and technical knowledge, great meets with industry leaders, rigorous schoolwork and provides a brilliant foundation to the start of a career in the field. The course workload for the full time option is very heavy, but also really fun, and atmosphere in class was always lovely and stimulating. KLC does not abandon its alumni once courses are over, and offer very strong support with finding work at reputed practices. I would recommend going to KLC for any manner of courses to anyone with an interest in the interior design field.

KLC was the gateway to my current life as an interior designer. I graduated in 2010 from the Open Learning diploma. The projects I undertook on the course were all real world experiences. Designs you would actually have to do for a client. I've always had a great passion for design. What KLC gave me was the right grounding, technical skills and knowledge to become the designer I had always wanted to be. Since graduating I’ve been privileged to work on some fantastic projects and created award-winning designs with my studio, Avocado Sweets Design Studio. Thank you KLC for helping me turn my passion into a reality.

Having studied as a full time diploma student in 2006/2007, I can without hesitation say this was the single most best investment I ever made. A former HR Manager I wanted change. I wanted to do something for myself that I felt was a hobby I could turn into a career. I never looked back! Without a doubt the toughest year with intense workload but the thrill, energy and buzz you get from your colleagues on the same journey as yourself, all giving something up to succeed and follow a dream, beyond worth it. Hard work, oh yes! More than you ever imagined, yes! Worth it, 100% The KLC family and they do become family are not only top of their game, they care, they know how the industry works because they've worked it and continue to do so. Incredibly professional and going the extra mile at every juncture I could not recommend the school in any higher regard. I celebrate being qualified in 2 weeks for 9 years and 8 years in business! Would I do the course again, absolutely! How does the industry view KLC, as the best there is! Rebecca Leivars, founder of LEIVARS.
