RIBA Student Mentoring in the East Midlands

05 November 2019

RIBA wants to ensure that the next generation of architects is supported to drive the profession forward and that students are able to learn from the best. 55 architects from 40 RIBA Chartered Practices in the East Midlands are joining the Student Mentoring programme this term. We are extremely grateful to all of them.

The 2019-20 programme was launched in October for the current academic year, resulting in places for 101 architecture students at the four RIBA-validated Schools of Architecture in the region: the University of Lincoln; Leicester School of Architecture, De Montfort University; Nottingham Trent University; and the University of Nottingham.

During the Meet and Greet evenings at the Nottingham Trent University, mentor Matt McCreith from GT3 Architects shared his experience and the benefits he receives from the scheme. It was an inspiring story, especially for the four new mentors joining us this year in Nottingham.
