International Women’s day gives us another excuse to celebrate our international female community, students, staff and alumna.

Just over 80 years ago, during the conflict of second world war in 1942 Liverpool’s Polish School of Architecture was created, which is remembered through the Sikorski prize awarded every year by the school. 80 years later – again at a different time of conflict and set in the context of a wide international cohort we talk about and celebrate the Polish School, its significance and its legacy.

"World War 2 interrupted higher education for thousands of displaced teenagers and young people…..

The poles in Great Britain were successful in establishing four Polish  faculties at British universities: medicine at Edinburgh in 1941, architecture at Liverpool in 1942, veterinary studies at Edinburgh in 1943 and law at Balliol College Oxford in1944"
