What made you choose Brookes as a place to study?

I chose to pursue Architecture abroad because I want a challenge. I love exploring new places and making international connections. Oxford Brookes University offers a quality Architecture education and conducive learning environment. The proximity of Oxford to London is also a key factor.

What do you think of the course now you're here?

Initially, I was surprised by the way the education system works here – students are given a high level of control and self-direction to manage their work. With the support of my tutors and seniors, I adapted to my life here and have become an independent and responsible student. Seeing my peers work hard and getting encouragement from my tutors makes my studies extremely enjoyable and rewarding. The course content challenges me to think outof the box and allows me to apply theoretical knowledge in real-world scenarios.

What are the best bits of studying at Brookes?

The support I get from my tutors and staff is fantastic. The level of dedication and professionalism they exude is extremely inspiring. I enjoy the modern facilities such as the 24-hour architecture studios, the 24-hour library and careers support. Studying at Brookes also allows me to balance my time well between studies and a part-time job.
