Architecture residential summer school

We are offering free places on an architectural drawing summer school taking place from Thursday 24 August to Tuesday 29 August 2023. This residential opportunity is for Year 11 and Year 12 students (or equivalent) and takes place in Somerset.

The summer school has been offering a unique, fully-funded opportunity to students since 2016 and has been widely praised by attendees as providing an unrivalled insight into architecture and associated professions. We welcome applications from students with a keen interest in the visual environment, an inquisitive attitude and a positive approach to learning. The programme introduces students to architecture through a wide range of activities including drawing, discussion, practical experimentation and collaborative learning, with exercises set by leading thinkers in architectural education today.
