American Interior Architecture and Design BA (Hons) student Daniela Kroning discusses her decision to move to London to pursue her studies at London Met.
Where are you from?
I’m a military child, so I’ve moved a lot: Utah, Georgia, Kansas, Panamá, Hawaii, Italy, Spain – but lived the longest in Hawaii.
How did you decide that going to university was best for you?
I decided that university was best for me as interior design isn’t taught in high school, so I wanted to be more prepared for my career.
What advice would you give to other students who are thinking about studying in the UK?
If you know what degree you want to study, then definitely go to the UK; it’s more affordable, it takes less time and you don’t have to take general classes as it’s very specific to what you want to study.
What do you consider the most valuable about getting a degree abroad?
Studying for my degree abroad at London Met has exposed me to so many different cultures and ways of life, and I’ve found it to be very enriching on my outlook on life.
What do you like the most about your degree?
I love how creative and hands-on my degree at London Met is and how invested my lecturers are in supporting our success.
What is your favorite thing about studying at London Met?
My favorite part about studying at London Met is all the connections you make with people from all over the world. You end up learning, not only things related to your degree, but a little bit of everything.
