I Wonder Wednesdays

‘I Wonder Wednesdays’ is a series of online academic taster sessions designed to help you explore the subjects that interest you and discover what it would be like to study them at university.  You’ll meet one of our lecturers and have the chance to ask questions about the subject and about the University of Suffolk.  They are also a great way to demonstrate interest in your subject when writing your personal statement. 

Virtual Architecture Taster Session: 4th May 2021

The University of Suffolk is offering a special virtual Architecture taster session on the 4th May at 11.00 until 12.30. This taster session will give students a real insight into studying Architecture at the University of Suffolk. Students will get the opportunity to use their imagination and recycled materials to create a quick architectural structure. The session will then explore how architects use the hidden material of light (in this case a simple mobile phone) and its relationship to atmosphere, proportions, and the built environment to enhance the architectural process and experience.
