Choong Pak Mun, Malaysia - Rhodec BA Graduate
"I wish to thank all staff, the Principal and tutors of Rhodec for this rare opportunity to earn a BA from a prestigious UK University, without even leaving the country. Once again Rhodec outclassed all other colleges in distance learning education. Thank you."
Wayne Silver, UK - Diploma/DipHE Graduate
"Embarking on my Rhodec course coincided with my being at a complete career crossroads. Over the 3 years I have felt extremely motivated to carry on and this is encouraged by the modular nature of the course. Overall, I think I can safely say that I am absolutely over the moon that I decided to take the course; I am thrilled to bits with my qualifications and I am really excited at the prospect of a career in interior design ahead.
"My Mum, Dad and partner are very proud of me! I have obtained other qualifications in the past but this is the first one that has given me a real sense of self-worth and a real vision of a new career opportunity ahead of me which I feel very equipped to tackle: I am just starting the project of refurbishing my new home which is a farmhouse and barn built in 1605 and last converted in the 70s.
"The course has been administered brilliantly and has made the concept of a correspondence course very real. With the bulletin board too, one also gets a great feeling of camaraderie of spirit.
Zsuzsanna Fehrman, USA - Diploma/DipHE Graduate
"I wanted to take this opportunity to say thanks for all of your assistance throughout my Rhodec educational experience. Your school is top notch, and I wish Rhodec much continued future success! I found that my tutors were genuinely interested in helping me succeed. Whenever I had questions regarding my studies, I always received prompt responses from both my tutors and Rhodec's administrative offices. Since completing my Rhodec studies, I have to say that I feel well prepared to enter the exciting field of interior design. Best wishes to you all."
Jenny Didas, USA
"I was living overseas in Saudi Arabia when I completed the Rhodec program. It took a lot of hard work and self discipline to move through the project assignments. Upon my return to the USA, I gained immediate employment as an Interior Designer for a large construction firm.
"I now have my own design firm, Design Forum, which specializes in interior planning for new residential construction. Recently, I was accepted as an Allied Member of the American Society of Interior Designers. I have complete creative freedom by operating from an office in my home. My research and attendance at trade shows has led to an extensive design library which is available to my clients. I communicate with local builders via the internet and meet them at the construction sites to work out interior details. I could not dream of a better career than this!"
Jill Armitage, UK
"When I expressed an interest in learning more about your interior design and decoration courses, I eagerly devoured every scrap of information in your prospectus. Needless to say, I liked what I read and enrolled for the Diploma Course. Part of the prospectus, devoted to 'students tell us', I pooh-poohed - why? Because I liked facts and not fairy tales, and I believed these to be the latter. Well, Rhodec, if you had been my fairy godmother, you could not have given me anything better than the opportunities that your training has opened up for me. Fairy tales: never; facts: every time. Everything that you promised has come true, and more. Thank you, Rhodec; I will continue to sing your praises. I owe you so much: you not only gave me a career, you gave me self-esteem and confidence in my own ability."
Vanessa Strange, USA
"I think you have an excellent program. I've attended two supposedly "top" colleges in the US, and honestly your curriculum, organization, and depth of material were superior to much of what was presented at either of these."
Marion Clare, Canada
"I graduated with a Rhodec Diploma in May 1991 and ran my own interior design business in England until I moved to Canada in 1994. Before I emigrated I was offered a position as an associate designer with a presitigious interior design company here in Victoria. I worked with them for around six months and then set up my own company, and have been steadily busy with most of my clients coming from referrals. I enclose a copy of my brochure which I hope may be of interest as I know you always like to hear about the progress of your students. My training seems to be of an unusually high standard here and I am frequently asked where I studied. I will always be grateful to Rhodec for my thorough education in interior design. Keep up the good work."
Ashton Hollands, South Africa
"It seems that my lifetime dream has come true! I enclose my application for fellowship of the Royal Society of Arts duly signed by the fellows, and it just awaits the Principal's signature. Believe me, I am most enthusiastic about Rhodec. It's the most thorough and beautifully worked out course and I give it full credit for my competence in the subject."
Jenny Johnson, UK
"I'd have no hesitation in recommending anyone to enrol for one of your interior design courses. I found it very comprehensive and it gave me the knowledge and confidence to embark on my new career as a freelance designer and subsequently start my own business."
John Doak (Architect), Cayman Islands
"I have found the knowledge gained from the Rhodec course has helped tremendously in many of the schemes I have produced here, ranging from condominiums and private homes, to banks and office buildings. The main thing I appreciate about Rhodec was that it filled a large gap in the standard course of architecture and several of my friends in the profession have followed suit."
Laurie Horton Ledger, UK
"My decision to study with Rhodec has provided me with a most rewarding second career. Having previously worked as a secretary with no previous training in interior design, I completed the Diploma Course in a little over two years. A year later, I now run my own business and have just moved into new larger offices in central Hove, having started working from a small spare room at home. We have been appointed interior design consultants to a local building society which will entail the refurbishment of their 40 offices over the next few years. I have just redesigned an accountant's offices and am at present having discussions with a major seafront hotel in Brighton and hope shortly to carry out some work for them. We have even revamped the waiting room of a local crematorium! Our two latest projects are a company flat on the top floor of a large office block, and the conversion of a big Victorian house in Ealing. This latter commission came as a direct result of the clients knowing Rhodec's reputation and asking the college to recommend a graduate working in their area. I only wish I'd discovered Rhodec twenty years ago and given up all those years spent at the typewriter!"

"I'm writing to thank you and your staff for helping me to get my qualification. On getting it I applied for associate membership of the Institute of Professional Designers. Needless to say, I was delighted when I was informed that they had decided to elect me a fellow of the Institute. I've made a good start, having been commissioned to give a colour scheme for a large chapel in Salisbury, which should enable me to buy some better drawing materials which I would like. Once again, thank you."
Solange Lauthier, France
"I am only half way through the Associate Diploma Course but I want to tell you that I am already delighted: the course is interesting, challenging and good value for money; also, I have a very good contact with my tutor."
