How do get into interior/exterior design?

Alexia works in design but wants to know if a course or experience is needed to move into interior/exterior design.

I have really wanted to get into interior and exterior (landscape) design, but my BSc degree was in communications and media.

I have spent the last year after university working at a super yacht design company, but really want to learn how to use autocad, 3D design software, drawing in perspective, drawing techniques for interior/exterior layouts, 3D rendering etc. I can use photoshop, and drawing is one of my strong points, but I do not have the experience in specifically interior/exterior.

I finish my job in December, how would you recommend I go about learning these skills?

Maybe a Masters course? Or are there recognised courses for this you can take in less than a year? Or perhaps work experience and learn a bit on the job?

Many thanks in advance
