Last week Thursday, we officially wrapped up the academic year with our 2015 graduation, held, for the first time, at our Salt River Road campus. We are extremely proud to announce that we had 17 Diploma of Interior Design students and 12 Higher Certificate in Interior Decorating students graduating this year.
After all the hard work that the students have put into their studies over the past few years, especially leading up to their final portfolio hand-in, it was an emotional moment for them. We were lucky to have Adri van Zyl and Vincent Clery from Atelier as our guests of honour, who delivered an inspirational and insightful talk for the graduates on entering the real world of design.
As per tradition, we hosted an Industry Evening later that same day. Each year we host this event at which we exhibit the students’ final portfolios of work, giving the industry an opportunity to look for potential employees. It also gives the students an opportunity to meet, mingle and network with past graduates, suppliers and other designers. And of course it also gives us an opportunity to have a party!
To all our graduates – congratulations on your amazing achievement and we wish you all the best for your next adventure into the fun, thrilling, slightly scary, but mostly incredible world of interiors.
