Past Student Feature | Meet Dayan du Plooy

BY GetSmarter

Dayan du Plooy has completed two GetSmarter courses, and has successfully applied all the skills she learned to the wedding and events planning company that she runs with her husband, Perennial Weddings. She recently contacted us to share her positive experience on the UCT Events Management short course and the UCT Start and Manage a Small Business short course. We were so impressed with her story, a true testament of the worth of both these popular courses. 


Past Student Feature | Meet Tougieda Gallow

By GetSmarter

Tougieda Gallow finished her second GetSmarter short course in 2013, and is eagerly looking towards her next. This mother of two has a thirst for learning, and has certainly taken some massive strides from being a personal assistant towards her ultimate goal of being a digital animated graphic designer. We caught up with this determined past student to find out about her experience on the UCT Public Relations short course.

Past Student Feature | Meet Carin Coetzee

By GetSmarter

In 2014, there will be a significant increase in the volume of content organisations produce for public consumption. Therefore, the need for skilled copy-editors has risen, and so has the popularity of our UCT Copy-editing short course. We caught up with Carin Coetzee recently to find out about her experience on the course, and how she is applying these skills in her current role. 


Past Student Feature | Meet Sylvester Moyo

By GetSmarter

The UCT Occupational Health and Safety course is one that is growing in relevance, as the need for professionals with knowledge in this field continues to expand. We caught up with one of our past students, Sylvester Moyo, who completed the course in November 2013. He works for Doctors Without Borders, an international humanitarian-aid NGO, as a Virology Services Supervisor, and is currently based in Swaziland.

Make a living out of your love for design

By Petra Turner

Do you find yourself daydreaming about colour schemes, textures, finishes and design concepts? Are you always looking for ways to improve the aesthetics of your home? Are you bursting with ideas for your boss to turn your office space into a more stimulating environment? Your inner designer may well be trying to get out and work his or her magic. Many people dream of expressing their creativity in this way, but never consider interior design as a professional option. Perhaps 2014 is the year to do so.
