In the lead-up to the Ayr Campus graduation we will unveil our graduation prizewinners. At the Ayr graduation, there are 15 recipients in total.
Next, is Student of the Year – HNC Quantity Surveying Award, Lorna Jane Sullivan, HNC Quantity Surveying.
“I decided to study this course as I had worked for a quantity surveyor in the past and was extremely interested in the work they did. I also required this qualification to be able to continue my studies.
The course involved learning about the role of a quantity surveyor within the construction industry, as well a placement within a workplace and taking part in site visits. I had to apply myself when working towards my graded unit, and I learned to manage my time better, which will help me at university.
I had the opportunity to undertake a placement with Siemens in Glasgow where I worked with other quantity surveyors in the commercial industry. This was definitely a highlight of my time with the College as I enjoyed learning that a quantity surveyor is not only construction but also within the commercial industry.
The other highlights were receiving an ‘A’ for my graded unit as well as being chosen for this award!
I am completely over the moon to have won this award and am very humbled that my lecturers felt that I deserved it and recognised my hard work. I feel that I would not have been able to achieve what I have so far without the encouragement and support from lecturers.
I have just entered second year in BA Honours in Quantity Surveying at Glasgow Caledonian University. After I graduate, I plan to be working full-time as a quantity surveyor either in construction or commercial industries.”
