Karolina Auksoriūte

Name: Karolina Auksoriūte 
Course: BA (Hons) Product and Furniture Design
Route to University: Art and Design BTEC
Year of graduation: 2017

"When I came for an open day the tutors and staffs were all very friendly and positive. Everyone was very approachable and welcoming. The workshop facilities are amazing and did not compare to the other universities that I visited. The best bit of the course is the making. The ‘Thinking Through Making' phrase in the workshops is very true.

"This course has given me the opportunity to work on projects with lots of external companies such as Dyson, Herman Miller and John Lewis. I have also just finished my second year and I have applied for Erasmus, which I found out about at the events when starting university. In the second semester I am going to study at a university in Portugal.

"For the first semester, I am organising internships and work experience. Kingston University is helping me with career advice to find these opportunities."

"Kingston University was the right choice for my bachelor degree in product and furniture design. The time I spent here has made me understand many different ways and types of design as well as finding my own way of design. We have a great relationship with the tutors and they are very dependable. The workshop has experienced technicians we can approach and we are also free to explore on our own with proper inductions. The campus has great facilities we can use, including photography studios, print making studios and a digital workshop.

The course is divided well between the three years to include collaborating with companies and working with various different types of briefs. These briefs allow us to explore diverse approaches to design and the projects from the first two years were planned to prepare us for the most important final year of our degree. There were also several visits within London that were set up by the tutors and the overseas university trip held every year was also a fun way to explore design outside London.

Overall, the three years I've spent at Kingston University were a really great experience and I graduated with no disappointment at all."

‪"As a prospective student, what attracted me to Kingston were the excellent workshop facilities, with large open workspaces, state of the art equipment, and skilled technical staff. Over the past three years I have seen even more investment into the workshop, with a new CNC plasma cutter, cutting-edge sheet metal benders, and the opening of a new 3D printing and electronics space.‬‬‬‬‬

The third-year projects allow students to choose their own briefs for total creative freedom, calling upon their experience and developing the skills learned during the course. My personal highlights include the course trips to Munich, Basel, Amsterdam and Rotterdam, as well as the 'Toolkit' lectures from industry professionals, which introduced me to the design world outside of university, and gave me the confidence to pursue a career in design.‬‬‬"
