Dae Wha Kang

"Kingston University's Part 3 course was as rewarding and engaging as it was demanding. Having come from university and master's degree programs in the United States, and working at an international firm here in the UK, I was looking for a course that would give me a solid grounding in UK practice. The Kingston course was rigorous and the professors had a great deal of expertise. I would highly recommend Kingston to anyone hoping to register as an architect in the UK."
