Today in our 25 Days of Giving celebration, online education company GetSmarter are offering an incredible Interior Design Online Short Course worth R7 900!


Innovative design has come to characterise every aspect of contemporary life. Interior aesthetics, in particular, affect the way people live, feel, work and play. The need for creative commercial and living spaces has led to an increased demand for interior designers with a trained creative eye.

Is this course for you?

The course offers a foundation in interior design theory, and teaches the practical skills required to succeed in this challenging creative industry. Throughout the course, you are able to practically apply your knowledge by creating 3D designs in SketchUp, which is a free industry-standard software package.

The GetSmarter Interior Design short course is a great choice for you if:

  • You’re currently working in the industry, looking to start your own business or you’re wanting to pursue a new personal challenge
  • You’re a self-made or aspiring interior designer and you’re ready to set yourself apart in this competitive industry
  • You’re in a related field, like hospitality, property, events management, wedding planning, fashion design or furniture design
