An attendee at our previous Summer School gave us the following feedback:

The Ulster Architectural Heritage & Irish Georgian Society Summer School was absolutely fantastic, it filled loads of gaps in my knowledge and covered content that university didn’t. 

I got a chance to meet a wide variety of conservation specialists I would have never had the chance to, and developed my understanding of built heritage. 

After the summer school my enthusiasm for listed buildings developed and I studied a post grad in applied building repair and conservation at Trinity College Dublin. 

I recently gained a position as a part time lecturer at Belfast Metropolitan College as a part time lecturer and as a Urban Designer for the Ards and North Down Borough council, who value conservation and our built heritage greatly. 

My experience of the UHAS Summer school was fantastic apart from all the excellent food and drink, it shaped my values regarding built heritage and was a great feature on my CV, I would advise all built environment students to apply !


*The programme may be subject to change. Further details will be released in the interim period.
