Our educational activities

Our education department runs a number of activities and projects designed to support students and academics, to showcase the work of the department, and to encourage discussion surrounding diversity of and entry to the profession.

We run a number of events such as the Perspectives on Architecture talks and the ‘Design Through Production’ Lecture series. These free events provide opportunities for speakers and audience members to contribute to sophisticated debates as well as providing a platform for presenting emerging architectural research.

Projects such as the annual analysis of Education Statistics and the Students Destination Survey allow us to build up an accurate picture demonstrating the demographic of students of architecture and their employability.  The information gained is used to inform RIBA educational policies and to respond to calls for evidence or consultations by various government departments.  We believe that this work is vital in order to shape and influence the future of the profession.
