The Open City Accelerate programme offers 12 free workshops and mentoring from a qualified architect for young people interested in going on to undergraduate study in architecture and the built environment industries.

This pioneering education and mentoring programme is aimed at increasing diversity in the built environment profession. It gives students the confidence and skills needed to make strong university applications to study architecture and other related courses. 

Accelerate is for ambitious young people aged 16-18 years old from London state schools and from under-represented communities. 

The programme starts in October 2021 and ends in May 2022. If accepted onto the programme, you are committing to attend all 12 workshops (held on Saturdays).
