Questions and answers:

  1. Before you came to Brookes what did you study and where?
  2. I graduated from the University of Plymouth in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture.

  3. What made you choose Brookes as a place to study?
  4. I chose Brookes because it is a great place to study. It offers a serene study environment, but also having an architecture course that is rigorous and challenging. I found that these two aspects were essential when I was considering where to apply.

  5. What do you think of the course while you were here?
  6. I had a great time studying here. I was always encouraged to develop the ideas and skills that I had to produce work that is unique to me, which as a result produced a portfolio that was very individual.

    The course really challenged me intellectually to pursue what I wanted to do and be, not only as an architecture student; but also as an architect and designer.

  7. What are the best aspects of studying at Brookes?
  8. The best bits about Brookes are the facilities, the teaching and of course, the students. This was especially in postgraduate, where we have come from different undergraduate backgrounds. This has encouraged me to be open to new ideas, techniques and methods of studying. The facilities here provide a wide range of the latest software and are regularly updated to make sure we are prepared to use it in Architectural offices.

  9. What advice do you have for others?
  10. Speaking as a postgraduate, I would say to definitely enjoy both the high and low moments when designing your final student projects. If you are passionate about your ideas, it will always come across in your final work. Drink plenty of water during all-nighters.

  11. What are your plans for when you've completed your programme, for work or further study?
  12. During the summer of 2012, I will be pursuing a Masters in Advanced Architectural Design. After completing my Masters, I will be looking to start my Stage 2 practical experience as an architectural assistant, hopefully in London.
