this what they ask
'Please tell us about yourself and why you want to participate in this program. Explain which companies/organisations you chose and why. Have you established already any contacts with these companies/organisations? If yes, please tell us how far you've reached in securing an internship. If not, please tell us how you intend to establish contact with them'
It's not completely finished as i'm still waiting for some answers from companies.
Please don't hesitate to correct or commend! Thank you!!
After my publicity and graphic studies at the AAA, witch already was a creative study, I immediately knew i wanted to study interiordesign. Because the study that I completed was more practical than theoretical, I went to follow a one year course at BBB. After this year I was hooked and wanted to learn more about the discipline.
I was particularly interested in furniture design and that is why I chose to go study at the CCC in Mechelen because this course was practically-oriented to furniture design. In my third year I applied for the Erasmus Programme and I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to study abroad with a scholarship in Leeds, UK. This was a great experience and I had a good time both educationally and socially. After Three years I graduated my Bachelor degree with cum laude.
I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge and continue with a Master degree at the DDD College Ghent. This year I will graduate a Master of Science in Interiorarchitecture at the end of June.
During my studies I only have had the chance to do a short internship at a local interiorarchitect. The idea of doing a longterm internship was playing in my head for quit a time when I stumbled upon the I-C project for recently graduates. I'm really interested in participating with the I-C project of FDC. As I was searching for a way to gain experience, I was trilled that with this programme I could do this a broad. It feels like the best of both worlds. In order to get the best out of it, if I get the opportunity, I would go for maximum period of six months.
I'm excited to finally put my knowledge in to practice. And believe that the best learning school is the work field. I am an open-minded person always curious to learn, flexible and willing to work hard.
Due to my personal interests and my high motivation,
I would be delighted to start my training at a foreign company.
I speak Dutch as my mother tongue and my English skills are very good thanks to my Erasmus exchange. As a part of the programme I will definitely take a short language course and I'm curious to take this in to practice.
In my search for a design company I am looking for a young studio that has not expanded to much as I believe I can learn more in a small studio then in a big office. I also made my decisions based on how they approach design and if there style touches me. As I always have been a big fan of Scandinavian design, I would be delighted to find an interesting studio in these countries. But in my search I prioritised the company instead of on the Country that is why I also selected some interesting studios in Spain, Germany and the Netherlands.
I would like to thank you for taking my application into consideration and I sincerely hope that you will accept my candidacy.
