Student Profile(s)

Jennifer Cogley

What are your career ambitions – in what way did these influence your decision to come and study at Huddersfield?

Ultimately my aim is to qualify as an Architect and secure a job within a stimulating, design based architectural practice.

I worked for a reputable local practice during my professional practice year and was keen to gain as much experience working for them as possible. Studying in Huddersfield meant I was able to continue working for them on a part-time basis while studying for my Master's.

Not only is the course RIBA Part 2 accredited, the qualification gained is a Master’s as opposed to a Postgraduate Diploma, which is offered by many other Part 2 accredited universities. For me this added a great deal of value to the course. Also the course placed a strong emphasis on design and that was really important to me.

What do you think about your tutors?

The department has an excellent selection of tutors. Their backgrounds and areas of expertise are varied and wide ranging, meaning there is always someone to help. Many also work in practice so are in touch with the realities of the profession and have a good working knowledge of the subject. We are also lucky to have a team of visiting architects and other industry specialists who frequently attend reviews and tutorials to offer feedback and advice; I find their input extremely valuable.

Would you recommend your course to someone interested in that subject area or profession and, if so, why?

Yes. The course content is good and covers a wide range of subject matter. The tutors within the department are excellent and really in touch with the profession. Plus the freedom to choose your areas of study in the second year makes it particularly enjoyable. As well as design related modules, we study architectural practice, management and law. These modules help us to understand the greater role of the architect and the realities of the job, making us more office prepared.

How have you managed to balance your work/life/study with your professional commitments?

Hours in the studio are long but strong relationships develop between peers creating a good atmosphere, we keep each other going and have a lot of laughs.
