RIBA Advanced Conservation Course Lancaster

​Do you have a passion for conservation architecture? Do you want to develop specialist knowledge, skills and connections in the field? Are you interested in taking a route onto the RIBA Conservation register?

RIBA Advanced Conservation Course

The RIBA Advanced Conservation Course is an important step in developing your specialism in conservation. The course’s emphasis is conservation in practice, presenting fresh and diverse projects and case studies that showcase the work of small and emerging, as well as larger well established practices to demonstrate the full range of core skills needed by conservation architects, including the growing importance of the conservation of C20th buildings.

RIBA has secured a limited number of bursaries for this event, from the Lancaster City Council. In order to apply for these subsidised places Lancaster City Council will need to process certain personal data and RIBA has asked that Lancaster City Council only process applicants’ data for the purpose of administering the bursary, and not share this with any other organisation. Apply for a bursary by completing a bursary application form.
