The 2017 Architecture Summer School introduces students to the intellectual and creative requirements of higher education and challenges perceptions of design theory and practice. It aims to provide students with an understanding of what is expected in terms of critical thinking and provides an overview of the tools required in representation of architectural ideas. Students will have the opportunity to receive professional tuition and guidance in the completion of a short design project, from initial ideas generation through to the final presentation of work.

The course may also offer opportunities for suitable students to apply for either the MArch (Global) or MArch (Part 2), subject to requirement
