When Jasmine Lamey had to choose where to complete her higher education, the answer was easy. She simply followed in her parentsâ€™ footsteps and plumped for Kingston University. Three years later, the
23 year old from Dorset has graduated with an honours degree in architecture, becoming the third member of her family to join the Universityâ€™s alumni association.
Jasmine and her parents all opted to study at Kingston because of its reputation for excellent teaching quality. Her father Iain also graduated in architecture while her mother, Gill, took a slightly different design direction, completing a degree in fine art. â€œKingston University always seemed my most logical choice,â€ Jasmine said. â€œIâ€™d heard lots of stories about mum and dadâ€™s time studying at Kingston and I knew the Universityâ€™s architecture degree was really highly thought of in the industry.â€
Jasmine ended her course work on a high note, collecting a special award named after one of the lecturers who taught her father in the late 1970s. She received the Tim Bell prize for her outstanding drawing ability. Now she is looking forward to launching her career with a yearâ€™s stint at a leading London practice. She then plans to go back to the textbooks and study for a diploma to consolidate her knowledge of the legal aspects of the profession.
