Greenside Design Center, internationally acclaimed design college

As a specialist design college, GDC is geared to nurture creative and innovative thinkers and designers. Their graduates have what it takes to be leaders in the field, locally and internationally.

AIE, Academic Institute of Excellence announces the recent acquisition of the Greenside Design Center. As AIE welcomes Greenside Design Center into the AIE group of companies, they believe that their expertise in design education will greatly contribute toward expanding both their product offerings. The much expected announcement came, in July 2019, after months of negotiation.

GDC is the most internationally acclaimed design school in SA with its portfolios reviewed and moderated by local design educators and verified by international designers / design educators with their work benchmarked against the work produced by design students around the world, even from the 1st year of study. GDC’s verifiers have come from numerous countries, most recently from Denmark, Belgium, Australia, Israel, and the US; and from prestigious standing such as European Council for Interior Architects, Architects Council of Europe, International Council of Graphic Design Associations, and Pentagram.
