In these unprecedented times where the Architecture and Construction Industry have been majorly affected by COVID-19, students and recent graduates are facing a challenging moment in personal study and finding employment.
Tutorials and group study sessions are not what they used to be as many are missing the essential one-to-one tutorials and guidance from teachers and professionals.

Employment is at its lowest rate in the UK since 2008 and the competition is tough for graduates who are up against other candidates for jobs in studios and practices.

Also, there are those about to make the choice to go into higher education and are uncertain which subject to study and where.

If you are a student looking for private student Architectural consultation, I provide a personalised service and friendly support to guide you through your studies or post-education. We will look at your portfolio, project briefs, theses, case studies together to come up with a plan of action and develop your work into a well-thought out and finalised piece.

I give sessions where I look at CVs and portfolios for those applying to practices and offer guidance to improve your application package. I also offer practice sessions before the interview. I worked as a Studio Manager for an Architecture practice and a Curator for an Independent Art Gallery in London, so I know what studios are looking for and which applications and proposals are going straight in the bin.

There are those who are considering studying Architecture at University and need help to create a new portfolio or advice which subject to take: Architecture, Architectural Studies, Interior Architecture, Engineering and more. I offer careers advice to establish what would be best for you discussing your interests, likes and aspirations.

I offer a 30-minute session free of charge to open the dialogue between us and talk about your needs.

One-off sessions are £25 per hour.
I offer a discount for students booking blocks of three sessions.

International Students from around the world are welcome too! I also speak intermediate Spanish and Portuguese.

Please get in contact if you wish to have a Consultation or would like to know more about the Student Architectural Consultation Service.
