Student Profile(s)

Stanislava Delieva

As a foreign student, I’m really glad I joined the Advanced Architectural Design course at the University of Strathclyde. The course gave me exceptional artistic freedom of creating my own design briefs. With the support of my tutors and by working in classes, I could reinforce and explore even more aspects of my design thesis.
