About My University / College

Why did you choose this university/college?
I chose this institution because it has good facilities and it is strategically located.

Where is your favourite hangout on campus?
I enjoy hanging out at Casuarina Park, East Campus. This is one of the most beautiful places in TAR UC!

If you could change one thing about your university/college, what would it be?
I would like to unlock platforms and channels that better showcase students’ identities and capabilities in TAR UC.

About My Course

Who influenced you to choose this course?
Well… It’s just me, myself. I’m simply fascinated by the building environment.

What is the hardest subject in your course?
Design Studio. It is mentally and physically taxing. But if you have a passion for it, you will not find it tough. I have spent many sleepless nights on it but I do not regret even one of them!

Would you do it again?
I will definitely end up in an Architecture course again, simply because I want to build! I want to become part of the creative process behind the structures we inhabit, the spaces we fill and the rooms we visit.
