"I come from an art design background and saw this course as an opportunity to further an area I am interested in. Also, Landscape Architecture is an under-subscribed profession so there are good opportunities in the workplace."
"I chose Kingston University because I had heard of its good reputation for teaching Architecture and Landscape Architecture. The degree is solely coursework-based, which is great for me as I have never liked taking exams. Another good thing is that it has a joint first year with Architecture so I had the flexibility to change if I found that side more enjoyable. I also like the Kingston area as there is plenty of entertainment within the town and it is great for shopping."
"In the first year the teaching was very different from how I had previously been taught. The majority of classes are now tutorials with very few lectures. I find this useful because the teachers can easily help when you have a problem."
"One of the best things about Kingston University is the diversity and number of people you meet. I have made some really good friends, especially through my first year living in halls, which I would recommend to anybody. We have been on quite a few overseas field trips, working on projects associated with the North Sea. These are an opportunity for the class to come together really well, not only to do the work, but also to have fun."
"The course offers a lot of variety. You could be in a tutorial, a model-making session or doing a whole project in one day. At university you have the freedom to find your own style and the opportunity to explore your interests."
