The Kitchen Bathroom Bedroom Specialists Association (KBSA) in conjunction with global appliance brand Fisher & Paykel have provided funding to support more students undertaking the Foundation Degree Kitchen Design at Buckinghamshire New University (BNU), this September.
The support from Fisher & Paykel is set to cover two students already signed up via a KBSA bursary, allowing the KBSA to offer support to others that wish to study at BNU.
A third student Ella Kirsopp, pictured left, from Ream Interiors will be joining the foundation degree this year, with financial support from CITB and the KBSA.
Mark Young, retail sales director at Fisher & Paykel, said: “We are delighted to be supporting students on this very worthwhile kitchen design course. It is a technically focussed and knowledge-based programme that provides students with essential skills to build a career as a designer.
“We hope to continue working with the KBSA and BNU to support more students in the future.”
Peter Cross, pictured right, MD at Ream added: “The Foundation Degree will provide Ella with a fantastic opportunity to develop her skills and knowledge. As a blended course she will continue to work with us alongside her studies, having the opportunity to apply the tools and techniques she is learning in the showroom.”
Students interested in a bursary for the BNU Foundation Degree or the BA (Hons) top-up course, which starts next year can contact the KBSA for further information.
