Portsmouth School of Architecture
Education Liaison and Outreach
The University of Portsmouth has a very strong commitment to providing outreach activities and education liaison events for school and college pupils of all ages, and this ethos is carried forward within the School of Architecture.
We aim to provide activities that will enthuse young people about our architecture and interior design subjects.
Given the broad scope of subject areas that we cover, we provide outreach talks and workshops in the fields of architecture, interior design, building conservation, environmental design and sustainable design. We promote not only the fundamental principles and theory of these subject areas, but also focus upon their application in the real world.
We provide a wide range of activity types at different levels, from subject-specific talks for mature audiences belonging to professional and amateur clubs and societies, to hands-on activities for children of primary and secondary school age, and careers-oriented talks to help A-level students with their university choices.
Talks and workshops are provided by our teaching staff, researchers and postgraduates on request. As such, and due to the constraints of teaching and research in a busy and thriving department (with around 160 enrolled students), we encourage prospective schools and colleges to visit our department here in Portsmouth where we can not only provide the activity agreed upon, but also show visitors our extensive suite of resources, design studio, workshops and analytical equipment.
In the first instance any requests for outreach activities should be emailed to the University’s Education Liaison and Outreach Team, who can help with outreach in any subject area or you can visit their webpages.
