FAQ

  • Q1. How do I submit a project or design query for a review of the month?

    You collate the details of your project or situation and email them all to hello@designforwellbeing.co.uk .

    Ensure that you include as many details as you can and specify exactly what your issue is that you are looking for feedback on if you know, or just leave it open for our team to note what issues are recognised in the details you send through. If you wish to make the submission with anonymous project details then that is fine and please tell us as such when you send it through. All data will be held in accordance with our GDPR policy and regulations.

    Please remember to:

    - add your name when you submit

    - check that you have permission to share project details and others who own the materials have given you permission for them to be published online.

    If you need us to remove some detail after it has been published then please contact us.

  • Q2. Can I share the Mindfulness Exercise with my friends and family?

    Yes you can share it as much as you like. We think this world needs a bit more peace and inner stillness!

  • Q3 Is there an exam at the end of the course?

    Yes, if you wish.

    In the complete course you'll find short quizzes after each section to test your knowledge and a final graded exam at the end of the course. In the shorter bundles you will only find a final exam relevant to that particular bundle.

    The exam is only compulsory if you wish to receive a Certificate of Completion.

  • Q4. Do I get a certificate at the end of the course?

    Yes, you will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the course if you have completed all lessons and passed the relevant exam.

  • Q5. Does the course give me CPD points?

    We have not yet registered the course on the CPD service. We are looking at it and as soon as we do, we will make sure all students are updated so they can add the points to their account.

  • Q6. Is there a course handbook or handouts?

    Any additional written information is provided as part of a lesson’s resource section.

    For further reading on the subject we highly recommend the Elina Grigoriou's book: "Wellbeing in Interiors: Philosophy, design and value in practice" which you can purchase via all major bookshops or directly via RIBA.

    Yes, Elina is also the tutor of this course!

  • Q8. Is there further recommended learning material?

    Yes there is and Elina will be adding to the resources section of each lesson any relevant books, reports, or online links for expanded learning on the discussed topics.

  • Q9. Are there any face-to-face lessons being offered?

    Not right now of course but once the world situation improves we can offer lessons in person, usually for a group of 6 or more. To enquire about this please contact us on hello@designforwellbeing.co.uk and one of our team will be happy to discuss this with you.

  • Q10. Can I share the course with my friends and colleagues?

    We ask and prefer it for the sake of fairness that you share a link to the subscription page so they can access the course fully and legally! In fact, it’s a great idea to share and get more on the journey so please do so!

  • Q10. The examples used don’t apply to my local situations and context, what should I do?

    The course is being offered globally and as such it will be a challenge to reflect each and every geographical and cultural context. We are doing our best to extend these though and appreciate it if you send in your questions on applying the knowledge to your context so that we can expand the examples we refer to.

  • Q11. Who is behind the course and what are their credentials?

    The course is run under the brand Design for Wellbeing which is owned by Grigoriou Interiors Limited. Grigoriou Interiors is an interior design and sustainability consultancy based in London, UK.

    They have been running since 2009 and is owned by two sisters: Angeliki and Elina Grigoriou. More information on the company and the team can be found here
