Welcome to Dublin Design Institute
Accessible, flexible pathways to quality accredited design courses.
We are Ireland’s oldest independent Design Institute, having offered design programmes for the past 30 years. We have learned a lot in that time and understand that design is always changing, evolving, and never standing still. That’s why we have recently rebranded from Dublin Institute of Design to Dublin Design Institute / DDI. As DDI, we are thrilled to present a refreshed identity and approach. Along with a new brand identity, our new city centre campus allows us to grow and help you reach your potential.
Meet our Alumni
Our alumni have all taken their first steps into design with one of our flexible programmes. Some start their journey with a short course, then progress to year-long courses, some of which can lead to professionally accredited degrees. Some want to upskill to a professional qualification while others made the decision to switch careers and develop their creative talents. Many are now working in the design industry and creative sectors both here in Ireland and abroad. A lot of our alumni are also working in a freelance capacity, running their own agencies and businesses after gaining applied design knowledge through our quality accredited courses.
