When deciding what to study at university, Daniel found himself at an unusual crossroads.
“I wasn't sure what I wanted to do to begin with. A lot of my family are involved in medicine, but my dad is a carpenter and joiner, so I've always experienced the construction projects first hand. He used to take me on site, which helped increase my interest in designing the built environment."
These experiences led Daniel to identify architecture as his subject of choice, which would soon shape his journey to the University of Reading.
“I came to study at Reading because of my experience on the Open Day. Speaking to academics in the School of the Built Environment, from both Architecture and Construction Management and Engineering, it was clear that their enthusiasm and knowledge was higher than other places I went to visit. They were interested in why you wanted to study at Reading, which made it feel more personal to my interests."
