Architecture Students Network to host Sheffield conference this weekend

  • Comment

The Architecture Students Networks (ASN) is holding a conference at Sheffield University this weekend, focusing on the problems students face in a ‘globalised world’

The event will be hosted in partnership with the Sheffield School of Architecture on Saturday (18 June).

Speakers from the University of Sheffield will be discussing topics, like the issues faced by international students in architectural education. These include Fionn Stevenson, head of the Sheffield School of Architecture.

According to the programme, the day will involve ‘discussing the challenges that architecture students face in a globalised world’. It aims to provide a ‘manifesto of ideas to be disseminated within the architecture profession’.

Also discussed will be how different cultures and languages effect the collaboration between students, as well as the ways students can benefit from Europe-based education.

The conference is free to attend for all architecture students and anyone else interested. 

Last year, the ASN held an event with the University of Brighton about the mental health of architecture students.

As part of the Brighton conference, a survey was set up to research the subject. Any architecture students interested should download the documents below and send completed forms to asnmentalhealth@gmail.com.

The ASN is an independent student-led network representing architecture students in the UK.

Take the AJ’s 2016 Student Survey

The AJ is currently conducting a survey for architecture students in the UK. Information from this will be used in upcoming AJ articles, both in print and online. All students who fill out the survey will have the chance to win a selection of top architecture books.
