This is the end of the 2nd year of my Bsc Hons in Interior architecture, in the Cork Institute of Technology.
It also was my first year abroad, in Ireland, after three years of design studies in France.
I learned a lot during this year, and in different subjects. First, I learned to work in English, and my language skills progressed a lot, as well as my confidence. I also discovered that some perspectives and the relation to design could be different from one country to another.
In addition, my design skills, of course, evolved a lot. I feel like I have made big progress this year, on software mostly, with AutoCAD, SketchUp and Photoshop, but also in my sketching and in my ideas.
I will use the summer to do an 8 weeks workplacement in France, in order to continue to progress and have a second experience in the professional world – and get ready for 3rd year !
