Summer School 2019

Applications are now open. To apply, click here.

Applications will close on 22nd March 2019.

Ulster Architectural Heritage in partnership with Irish Georgian Society are pleased to announce that we will be running our Biennial Summer School on 20th-22nd June 2019. You can see an article on our previous summer school here.

The topic will be ‘Living Towns and Villages in Cavan and Fermanagh’, and once again we will offer 30 fully subsidised places* to students studying a relevant subject such as, but not exclusive to, Architecture, Planning or Museum Studies, at degree level.

The school will be directed by renowned architectural historian Kevin Mulligan, author of The Buildings of Ireland, South Ulster: Armagh, Cavan and Monaghan.

Places will also be available for delegates and general admission, which provides an excellent opportunity for students and professionals to meet others from different universities and disciplines, and mix with and learn from others in the field. The full programme and ticket options for delegates will be announced shortly.

The programme will include lectures from architects, historians and members of the  local councils; as well as site visits, access to unique historic venues, and food and entertainment.

Allocation of places  will be dependent on the commitment to participate in the student competition which includes the advance submission of one A3 poster responding to a given heritage and conservation issue in the Fermanagh/ Cavan area. More information will be provided to successful applicants. Winners will receive a prize presented on the final day of the school.

The programme will include lectures from architects, historians and members of the  local councils; as well as site visits, access to unique historic venues, and food and entertainment. The outline programme is as follows**:
