A CLYDEBANK student has been helped to get online to support her studies by a college partnership.

Maja Gulbicka’s own laptop crashed during lockdown – but West College Scotland gave her a new machine through a partnership with ScottishPower to help her studies for an HND in interior architecture on track.

Maya, who was studying at the college’s Clydebank campus before the pandemic, said: “I am working on a live client project in collaboration with Keppie Design Ltd where I am designing a studio for an artist, using 3DS MAX.

“Unfortunately, while I was working from home recently my laptop crashed, but I was able to quickly get the loan of a device from the college.

“I can thankfully now complete my coursework and I finish my renders for a presentation with the client.”

The initiative builds on the college’s provision last year of around 2,800 digital devices to help students with their virtual learning, paid for by the Scottish Government, Scottish Funding Council and the college’s own resources.
