Name: Hearan Kim
Institution: Ravensbourne University London
Course: BA Interior Design Environment Architectures, MA Environment Design
I came to Ravensbourne in the third year of my undegraduate degree to study the wider context of the environment and architecture. I really enjoyed the experience, so I stayed at the university to study for an MA in Environmental Design.
If I hadn't come to Ravensbourne, I wouldn't have had the opportunity to work at a firm in London or work abroad. My final year prepared me for working in industry; we went to different architecture firms to get to know how they work and to have the opportunity to speak to the professionals working here.
I joined Design International as an architectural assistant 6 months after graduating from Ravensbourne. I then became a project leader and am now a director.
