Launch of New Architecture Summer School

Architecture and Interiors 5 March 2014

We are pleased to announce the launch of the new Access to Architecture Portfolio Preparation Summer School from the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at University of Westminster.

The Access to Architecture Summer School is a short three day course giving 16 to 18 year olds a taste of what it is like to be an architectural student with studio sessions, ‘taster’ lectures and building visits. It aims to ’boost’ students' portfolios through studio work and also to give guidance on the all-important personal statement and course choice.

The University of Westminster Department of Architecture is recognised by the architectural profession as one of the leading architecture schools in the country. Recent students have won many awards for design and go on to forge successful careers at top international architectural practices.

The Summer School is open to any 16-18 year-old interested in studying Architecture or Interior Architecture. For more information about the dates for the course and course fees, visit our webpage.

Alternatively, you can contact Celeste Miles, Summer School Administrator.
