Not at all relevant for the industry. I work in the landscape industry for now 4 years and not ever I thought ‘great, I’ve got this thanks to Holmesglen’. Thechers weren’t always preset and the material is so old now, completely unrealistic compared with what’s expected in the industry. For example, one semester only of computer aided design course!!! Everyone in the industry is now drawing on the computer and one semester is really not even 10% of what the expected knowledge is once you apply for a job. I have many other examples.

Good course for entry into the industry. Due to the types of jobs students would get following the course completion, there should be be more focus on the ability to present quality documentation not 3D drawings.

I studied part time at night, by the end of it, I think I spent an additional couple of hundred dollars just in printing and purchasing folios. The teaching staff who were teaching the night time classes weren't always on the same page with the daytime teaching staff. There needed to be more of a standard in the curriculum between the Night and Day, Part time and Full time students. Felt disadvantaged at times, in regards to not getting the same content delivered as the full time students.

The course content was relevant to the job, could have included more information regarding what would be expected on the job. I found the content always interesting, studying part time meant there was a lot of overlap in some areas.

Teachers (all but one) were absolutely shocking. We had our teachers changed constantly so there was no consistent method of teaching. Most of them seemed under qualified. Course content is also extremely outdated.

Course was good, definitely structured more towards continuing into design and not about decoration. Would be better if there was hands on styling/staging in the course. Cost to print final submissions, purchase computer and software should be clearer as it’s quite expensive due to a custom built or upgraded computer being required to run the software and there is limited resources outside of class time if you don’t purchase a computer and the software. Study time outside of class should also be more clear as most students spend a further 20-25hrs outside of class completing assessments. Definitely provides excellent steps and knowledge to carry into the diploma of interior design and decoration. Great if you’re looking to eventually work in a studio.
