Karolis Kafkas is studying NQ Computing at West Lothian College 

This practical course is the ideal choice for anyone who wants to develop information technology and computing skills needed for more advanced courses such as HNC computing or HNC cyber security. 

This played a big part in Karolis’ course choice. 

“I picked this course because I have a real interest in the subject and I hope to go on to study all the way through to a degree. I want to work in cyber security because I think it is a really exciting topic. I  actually got the last place on this course so I was pretty lucky! I’m glad I got in because I wanted to get onto a course at entry level.” 

Karolis who is originally from Lithuania but now stays in Livingston points out that West Lothian College  is really accessible for people who stay in the area. 

“The college is local and convenient to get to. It’s great that I can study without having to travel to Edinburgh or Glasgow every day. To anyone thinking about coming to West Lothian College I would say: find something you are passionate about and something you love then just go for it!"
