About the Sheffield School
Sheffield began as an interior design school in 1985, and then expanded its course offerings to train people in other design-related fields, including Feng Shui, Wedding and Event Planning and Jewelry Design. With thousands of active students and more than 50,000 graduates, we've trained more design professionals than any school in the world. Our Courses are fully accredited by both DETC and New York State, find out more about Sheffield School accreditation here.
Sheffield's offices are located in the heart of Manhattan, between Grand Central Station and the United Nations. This location, in the design capital of the world, allows us to hire faculty members who are among the top professionals in their fields. Sheffield students have unlimited access to these amazing interior designers, Feng Shui practitioners and wedding and event planners. Whether in Sao Paolo, San Diego, or Saudi Arabia, every Sheffield student has the opportunity to benefit from a New York City education.
At first glance, Sheffield's student body is very diverse. Our students come from all over the world the United States, Canada, Europe, Latin America, Australia, the Middle East, and the Pacific Rim.

Most of our students are between 20 and 50 years of age; but others are in their teens, and some are well into their golden years.
About half of our students are pursuing a new full- or part-time career. To help them achieve their goals, each of our Courses includes detailed information about the business aspects of the field they are studying. A Sheffield education encompasses both the artistic and business aspects of design, which is one reason so many of our graduates have gone on to success in their chosen fields.
The other half of our students want to study a creative field for their own personal satisfaction, or to achieve their own personal goals. For example, they may aspire to create a beautiful home that will be admired by their friends and loved ones. Or they may want to plan their own wedding so that it is as polished and stylish as one that was planned by a professional.
Despite their diversity, our students also have a lot in common. They are people with a great sense of style. They have a passion for creating beautiful, eye catching designs. And they are people with full lives and hectic schedules, who are drawn to Sheffield's unique training programs, which combine the flexibility of distance education with personalized instruction from top professionals.
We've already helped thousands of students realize their dreams. Let us do the same for you.
