A post graduate degree was the best way to gain a deeper understanding for me and develop my interest in buildings from both a practical and technical know-how rather than purely academic.
More about Sunil
Why did you choose NTU and your course?
"Having worked in the legal sector advising on property and construction for many years I was intrigued as to how buildings were actually constructed and why they go wrong. I spent a lot of time reading the module content of various other course providers and found NTU to be the most engaging, interesting, and relevant to the industry. Being accredited by CABE and not only RICS was compelling too."
What were your motivations to choose Postgraduate study?
"A postgraduate degree was the best way to gain a deeper understanding for me and develop my interest in buildings from both a practical and technical know-how rather than purely academic."

"Working on live projects and meeting a breadth of industry experts. Collaborating with my international peers has also enriched my knowledge, and has developed my professional network."

What advice would you give to someone applying or looking at studying a course at ADBE and NTU?

You are genuinely supported and encouraged to ask questions and share your opinions. This positive engagement gives you confidence and motivation. You are taught the latest content and have access to the widest, most practical knowledge."
Is there anything else you’d like to say about your experience?
