Manoochehr Teimoorifar

“Progressing from an Art and Design foundation entry year gave me the confidence and experience to get through the next few years studying a bachelor’s degree in Interior Design. During my foundation year, communicating my ideas to my tutors and explaining how to reach my final vision was a bit of a challenge. At first you don’t know how to come up with the right ideas, but the tutors encourage you to be creative and find out about design and the history. ”
