I have always been a creative soul and when I had finished my bachelor’s at Roskilde University, I knew that I wanted to find a master’s programme where focus wasn’t only on writing long reports, but where design, people and technology had the pride of place. My bachelor’s is quite broad in the sense that I have knowledge of design, technology and people. This made me think that it might be difficult to find a master’s programme where I could utilise and expand my knowledge.
It turned out that Lighting Design at Aalborg University was the programme of my dreams. Here, we are always forced to think outside the box while maintaining a common thread.
I won’t lie and say that I wasn’t a little intimidated when I found out that Lighting Design is an international programme, however, once you get used to the idea, it turns out to be so rewarding; you can help your fellow students and get to know so many new people.
Hence, Lighting Design is not only a growing education for a growing field, but also a wonderful support network of teachers, students and secretaries who are always ready to help you if you need it.
I know that this programme will help me get my dream job where I get to convey stories through light.
