Guiding The Next Generation Of Architects - Mentorship

Mentorship at the Royal College of Art 

Topic

The mentoring scheme offers students another voice on their student work but can also offer guidance on professional development and industry engagement. This initiative the recognises value of the collaborative networks that drive our students and continues the tradition of linking architectural education with industry as first established by the Royal College of Art, as a direct descendant of the Government Schools of Design, in 1837.

People

Each first year MA Architecture student is assigned a practice mentor. This enables students to map shared research themes as well as developing a greater understanding of the diverse range of industry activity. Exposure and understanding of the working methods, approach and environment of each practice supports students in being reflective on their own emerging practice methods.
