Stephen Fitzpatrick (28) from Denny completed his BA Art and Design in July 2015.
He currently works at Art is an Option and is a web designer. Stephen chose to study at FVC as it was his local college. He also had friends who attended the Falkirk Campus who had nothing but good things to say about the College.
He said: “The facilities are state-of-the-art and it is a fantastic place to work and socialise in. I really enjoyed working and going there. All the lecturers are really friendly and great to deal with. I can't pick a fault with any of them.
“My experiences of the College really has helped me in many aspects of my career to date. The confidence the lecturers gave me, the enjoyment of the course which further strengthened my enthusiasm for the industry, the artistic flair the course allowed me to pursue, all helped me to look at problems in different ways.
“The College helped me to achieve and surpass limits I never knew I had, which gave me confidence in my own ability. The various aspects in the course helped me in business, problem solving, creative thinking and thinking outside the box and much more.
“I would definitely recommend the College to people from my area and industry as it was a great experience and some of the best years of my life. The friends I made, the experiences that I had and the life skills I learned, have all stood me in good stead.
“The best bit for me was the exhibition show that I took part in. It was a really great experience to work towards a final goal and to present my work to my family and the public.”
