Architect Work Experience and Careers Day
Saturday, April 30th 2022
In the morning session, we’ll focus on everything you need to do in order to study architecture at university, from your applications to subject choices at school, grades and obtaining work experience, by the end of the session you should have an understanding of everything you will need to do in order to get a place at university.
Choosing architecture as a career path means lots of different types of qualifications you’ll need to do & we’ll go through them all so you have a clear understanding of your path to becoming an architect. In the afternoon we’ll concentrate on giving you some meaningful work experience that you can use in your applications to university.
You’ll be tasked with designing a house extension based on a client’s brief using software that you’ll have access to for the course. Not only will this task test your design skills it will also test your interpretation skills of following the client’s brief for the task. We’ll then have a group question and answer session and at the end of the day, you’ll receive a certificate that you can use in your applications.
It’s our aim that by the end of the day you’ll have a better understanding of how the industry works, know what you need to do for a successful application and have some great material to use in your applications to help you secure a place.
