RSUA Advanced Conservation Course

18 October 2017

18th October 2017 – 22nd November 2017

This autumn RSUA is running a 5 day Advanced Conservation Course which can lead to an RSUA Certificate in Architectural Conservation on successful completion of an assessment.

The programme is aimed at architects and related professionals working in the fields of conservation, refurbishment and restoration who have previously completed the RSUA Conservation Course or equivalent. The introductory RSUA Conservation Course will be run again in spring 2018.

This course is not directly connected to the process of becoming a RIBA accredited Conservation Architect however it is a useful addition to your portfolio of evidence if you are working toward that goal.

The achievement of an RSUA Certificate in Architectural Conservation is an essential preparatory step for architects wishing to undertake an RSUA Diploma in Architectural Conservation which is a non-class based project.

The course will be co-ordinated by Marcus Patton and the speakers will be a mix of local and national experts.  The indicative topics are:
