Mental health problems exposed by AJ Student Survey 2016


Long working hours and pulling 'all-nighters' has been part of the architect (and other professional/design training) for decades. The added stress of high fees and a course that is just too long in this era is possibly the straw that breaks the camel's back. It might be a start to guarantee that fees will not increase and course length decrease with in-work training. The current training system is based on a model 57 years old. Time for a major change. The training of architects needs to be put much more in the hands of practising architects at the coal face. They know what is needed.
