MSc Construction Management
Khemkang is the son of two architects so it was a relatively simple decision for him to study an Architecture degree. He completed this in America in May 2002 and returned to Thailand to use his knowledge in his home country. However, after two years back in Thailand, Khemkhang realised that he needed to supplement his architecture skills with business knowledge in order to be a success and have the utmost employability in the growing Thai economy.
“…my research showed me that Loughborough University has a high reputation for Construction Management and it is a Top 10 University. I was also advised to apply here by Education Agents in Thailand. My brother, who has lived in England before, also recommended Loughborough to me because it is a small, friendly town which is located in the middle of three major cities – Birmingham, Nottingham and Leicester. I decided to study my postgraduate course in UK because of the worldwide reputation of English qualifications and also because there is some beautiful architecture here for me to see.
“Another benefit of studying in England is that the postgraduate degrees are only 12 months long which means it is cheaper than living for 18 months in America, for example. However, this also means that the course is very intensive and I have learnt so much in my first 3 months here! I now have a good understanding of the business aspects of construction management and I am doing lots of project work. It is a great course and I have all the facilities here that I need to support my study.
“I would definitely recommend Loughborough to other International Students. You will get an excellent education and gain valuable life experience outside of Thailand, or your home country. You will also improve your English and your study skills while creating relationships with people from all over the world. My wife and I are enjoying life here immensely and I look forward to using all my new knowledge when I return to work in Thailand next year.”
