CPUT - Interior Design
Having completed a Degree in Interior Design at CPUT was a great experience. Even though it was a very challenging year, it was also extremely rewarding at the end of the day. It has also given me the title as a Cape Town Interior Designer.
It has been my second choice during my Applications to Universities. And once I had the opportunity to work in an Architecture and Interior Design Studio I used this to gain more experience and understanding of this field. This was a great foundation during my studies.
