You’ll all be well-missed by the department and we wish you every success in your future’s.”
HND Interior Design
Ronnel Caliwag - Paisley Campus, 45 years old
"I originally came from the Philippines and now live in Paisley. Winning the Student of the Year Award is a great accomplishment all the hard work has been worth it. I've loved every second of being at College, and I know I have my amazing lectures to thank for it.”
Danielle Prunty - Paisley Campus, 26 years old
"Being awarded Student of the Year really means a lot to me as I have put everything into my studies over the past year so to have that recognised is amazing. My confidence has grown so much and I’ve learnt so many valuable skills from my lecturers- with a special thanks to Lola who has always encouraged me to achieve my full potential. This award has also reaffirmed that leaving a full-time job to pursue design is the right path for me and I’m extremely excited for my future.”
HND Graphic Design
Kevin O'Connor - Paisley Campus, 24 years old, Greenock
“It means so much to me to be awarded student of the year 2020. When I started back in the NC Graphic design, I didn’t think I’d do too well. I didn’t study Art/Graphic design at School, I only began self-teaching just a little time before the NC. So to see that I’ve received this award now just blows me away. The confidence this has given me to press on forward to University is massive. I don’t think I would’ve done so well if it wasn’t for the positive support I received from the lecturers. I greatly enjoyed my time at West College Scotland, thank you.”
Brian Elder - Paisley Campus, 52 years old, Clydebank
“I am very happy with award, underlines the hard work that I've done this year, as much as the support and advice received from lecturer', under trying times. Kevin is definitely a superb choice too, he's been an excellent worker and top designer in my book.”
