“I’m originally from Bulgaria and I now live in Dundee. I studied NC and HNC level in Dundee, but because the college there doesn’t do the HND in Interior Design, I moved to Fife College in order to progress with my studies.

“I’ve made a lot of friends since coming to Fife College. The staff are very supportive and very helpful. They allow us to experiment and explore and try things.

"Because I moved from another college, some of the ways I’ve been used to working aren’t the same ones the rest of the class here are used to.

"But the lecturers are always happy for me to work in the way I feel most comfortable even if it is slightly different. For example, I work in flip folders instead of sketchbooks.

“After I finish my HND, I’m continuing to progress in my education. I’m going to Heriot-Watt University to study BA (Hons) Interior Design. Because I’ve done my HND at Fife College, I’m able to go straight into third year of the degree course.”
