Develop your skills in architecture by enrolling in a summer school. Both the University of Cambridge and University of Sheffield are now taking bookings.
The University of Cambridge's two-week summer course 'Resilient London - Urban Security' will ask students to build on their socio-political, cultural and economic understanding of the city of London in order to explore a range of spatial security interventions that respond to the future resilience of London and its inhabitants. The summer school is a two-week programme taking place between 18 and 31 August, where students are exposed to design studios, field study, lectures and seminars from a number of experts from a range of disciplines within the field of risk, resilience and security.

Between 15 and 20 September, students enrolled on the summer course at the Sheffield School of Architecture will examine the fabric of the city centre of Sheffield and propose solutions to vacant, underused and underdeveloped sites within the city. Each day will include skills sessions, walks, talks, and presentations. Students will take part in design projects in collaboration with architects, engineers, artists and academics.
