The Bartlett school of Architecture is offering an online summer school for students wanting to study architecture. Join us online for a five-day creative and conceptual experience.

The design-based programme gives participants a first taste of studying architecture at UCL, using imaginative thinking, drawing and making, speculating, all within an online environment.

Participants can expect to produce a range of work including, drawings and models, and  will engage in an online drawing platform to collaborate with students around the world. Students will work in groups and individually under the instruction of The Bartlett’s highly skilled teaching staff.

This online short course gives students a taster of life at a world-leading architecture school and the opportunity to develop their drawing, making and communications skills. 

The course will be taught every day from 10:00 – 16:00 BST, with students joining from different time zones across the globe. 

Is it for me?

We're looking for applications from motivated students aged 16 and over, who are passionate about architecture and design. There are no required skills or subjects. 

You will need some basic model material, paper and pens and access to a computer or tablet.

This Summer School is for students able to follow the live teaching sessions online from 10:00 – 16:00 (BST). We will not be able to accommodate different time zones. All sessions will include several breaks and allow the student to work away from the screen.
