India’s JD Institute of Fashion Technology has announced a collaboration with Canada’s Georgian College to provide its interior design students study abroad opportunities.
The collaboration between JD Institute and Georgian College, two accredited institutes, will provide dual benefit to students without causing a gap in education or employment.
Students benefiting from this initiative between JD Institute and Georgian College will not only gain an overseas education, but will be given the opportunity to pursue industry work experience in Canada for four months during their course with Georgian College.
The Canadian programme is one of the few that is acknowledges by the Association of Registered Interior Designers of Ontario (ARIDO) which benefits students as they automatically become registered as an Interior Designer.
JD Institute students can complete the interior design honours course at Georgian College
Following completion of their three year BSc Interior Design at JD Institute, students will be eligible to enter into the third year of Interior Design at Georgian College, Canada.
This will enable students to gain the Honours Bachelor of Interior Design from Georgian College.
