Raffles students explore new 'Dimensions'

The students of the Advanced Diploma Course in Interior Design at Raffles Institute of Higher Education launched 'Dimensions' exhibition on 3rd November 2011 at the faculty lobby.

'Dimensions' proved to be vividly colorful and intensely artistic. Mihara Jayalath, Aleesha Thavarajah, Sherusha Fernando, Shervon Misso and Ajitha Ganeshmoorthy are the students whose brilliant talents were displayed at this exhibition. The students shared their thoughts on what it means for them to become an interior designer. Everyone agreed on how much they enjoy studying at Raffles which, according to them is 'the best place to study' and were grateful of the immense support they receive from their lecturers. Raffles provided them with the necessary knowledge on the technical aspects of the art of interior designing as well as building up a solid platform to improve and fine tune their skills by exposing them to an education of international standard.

Raffles Institute of Higher Education comprise of highly qualified lecturer panel who strive to develop the students in to their full potential and give them an international experience in their education. The learning environment at the campus is of high standard with a good curriculum and internships which, enhances not only the academic aspects but the leadership and entrepreneurship of the students. Apart from Interior Design, the campus offers courses in Fashion Design, Fashion Marketing and Management, Graphic Design, Jewelry Design and Multimedia Design.

Associate Professor Julie Ross, who is also the Academic Director at Raffles Institute of Higher Education explained that the institute provides an 'Advanced Diploma in Interior Design' course which contains both theory and practical lessons on areas such as space planning, creative problem-solving, communication skills and knowledge of building materials, construction, computer-aided drafting and the history of design. In today's market where the corporate world as well as individual tastes have understood the value of creating an environment which is aesthetically pleasing for their customers and employees, the demand for talented interior designers are extremely competitive.

Professor Ross also explained the need for identifying the artistic skills that are unique to the Sri Lankan culture and learn how to embed these aspects to the interior design education. This would provide the backdrop in bringing the Sri Lankan culture in to the international arena. 'Dimensions' is held from Monday to Friday, 9a.m - 6 p.m. We encourage everyone to visit Raffles and get a glimpse of the Sri Lankan talent in this form of art.
