MSc Architecture and the Sustainable Environment – Student Profile – Adebukola Adepeju

What attracted you to studying at Kent?
The University of Kent consistently ranks highly in the UK and its young and vibrant School of Architecture is one of the UK’s top ten.

Before taking a place on the programme, what was your previous area of study?
I studied Architecture for my first degree back home before coming to Kent.

Are you enjoying life on campus? Also, what would you recommend about the city of Canterbury to those that have never visited the area before.
I’m thankful for the campus environment- physical, academic and social. Everyone seems always ready to help. The campus is beautiful and safe and its vantage location within Canterbury makes everywhere I want to go easily accessible. Also, living in Woolf with all the facilities makes life easy. There are lots of international students here hence lots of activities from the different nationalities. It’s always good to learn a thing or two from other backgrounds.
Although Canterbury is relatively small, I love that it is such as historic city with one of the most beautiful Cathedrals in the world. I love that it is not noisy or overcrowded which perfectly suits me! It has a number of historic places like the Heritage museum and Marlowe Theatre. Movie and Film/Play enthusiasts like me can always catch the latest at the Gulbenkian on campus. There is also lots of lush green parks and gardens for lovers of nature and outdoors and the buildings around here are also very interesting and each one is uniquely different from the other especially the ones here on campus!

What has been the highlight of the course so far?
The learning environment here is so different from where I come from especially in terms of course structure and the feedback process but its nothing I couldn’t adapt to quickly. The staff have been very supportive so that has helped me a lot. Also, there are a variety of nationalities on my programme so it’s interesting to learn a thing or two about their respective backgrounds.

After you finish your studies, what would you like to do next?
After school, I definitely want to go back to practice, I had worked back home before commencing my studies last September.
