Which course did you study  and why did you choose it?
I have already completed Introduction to Interior Design - Part 1, Introduction to Interior Design - Part 2, and Interior Design - Module Two, and I will be starting Interior Design - Module Three within next couple of weeks. I have always been interested in interior design and I was looking to gain experience in this field and learn new skills. After taking part in the bite-size course I realised this is the course for me!

I love the way these courses are designed. They are intensive and hard work, but it is so satisfying at the end when you look back and realise how much you have learned. Learning new things is inspiring and encouraging.

In terms of the personal development, it has gave me my confidence back, and I feel that I can achieve what I put my mind to. I want to embark on a new career as an interior designer and these courses are helping me with the knowledge and skills that I need to do that.
