This architecture virtual work experience programme will give you the building blocks needed to make an informed decision. We'll cover everything from sustainability to technology.

What’s included?

We'll be covering some of the most exciting areas within the world of architecture, including urban planning, green architecture, restoration and technology. This will leave you with a great impression of areas you may want to explore further and specialise in.

Urban Planning

What is urban planning? What transport factors do architects need to consider when designing a town? How are gentrification and architecture related? We'll answer all these questions and more. In this module's activity, you'll be given a brief from a developer to design a town and road system for a new housing estate using everything you have learnt so far.

"Thank you for taking the time to create this programme. The volunteers on the live sessions were all really nice and down to earth which was really good to hear proper experiences in this industry, without sugar coating or hiding anything. To the people who made this project brief and stuff for us: I really enjoyed it and I thought it was the perfect topic and it's nice to bring more awareness and knowledge of this subject to more people! Also all the videos were really nice on this programme. Very full of life and engaging!"

Thank you for providing opportunity for young people like me who had no previous exposure to the industry/ This programme has some great elements that differentiates itself with other work experience providers. The programmeg particularly focuses on ourselves: our confidence, our skills and what we want to do in the future rather than just the work opportunities available and how to get there. I've really enjoyed this programme and hope there would be more opportunities into this specific field

Thank you very much for this experience. This sector sounds fascinating and I will definitely explore more. During and after lockdown, my opportunities for work experience were completely erased. But thank to this wonderful virtual work experience, I am able to gather crucial experience to write down on my CV and personal statement. Thank you once again!
