Many applicants, particularly those from science based subjects do not have a portfolio or a body of work to draw from. Others believe that their work is unsuitable to support their application to study architecture or believe that their work to date does not do justice to their abilities. As a result, we have introduced the ‘Selection workshops’ as an alternative to the portfolio submission.
The workshops will start with a presentation that will tell you all about studying with us at the School of Architecture and the programme you are applying for. You will then be asked to take part in two tasks, both tailored to help us to understand your strengths in relation to the programme we offer. The tasks will involve input from you as an individual and maybe as part of a group. The exercises are designed to bring out the skills and qualities that are required to study the challenging but rewarding programme we teach. We are here to support you, not to trip you up or unsettle you!
Following the tasks we have scheduled an information session which will allow you to discover more about the School of Architecture, Student Finance, Accommodation, Student Support Services and general Student Life here at Liverpool. For this reason, we suggest that you come along to the Selection Workshop and should you then wish to return for one of our Applicant Discovery Days, we will give you information on these, including how to register, during your visit. Please do take this opportunity to come armed with any questions you may have. No-one should leave the day with questions unanswered.
Our Architecture Selection workshops are by invitation only, following your application. The events will run between December and March including an event at our London Campus.
