Two students on the Postgraduate Diploma in Architecture: Professional Practice have recently been awarded prestigious prizes for their work

Danielle Simpson and Ross Hartland share the Stanley Hall Cox Prize for the best Diploma student, donated by Stride Treglown, and Ross Hartland is awarded the Society of Construction Law prize for best performance in the Construction Contracts module. As well as Danielle and Ross, two other students were awarded Diplomas with Distinction: Stalo Pitta and Amelia Brown.

The external examiner commented that ‘The course content and student submissions remain at a very high standard.

Professor Sarah Lupton, Personal Chair and Course Director said: “I am very pleased that we delivered the full course as originally programmed, and would like to congratulate all students on the excellent work they submitted, and their performance at interview. A very big thank you to all those who contributed as tutors, seminar presenters and examiners.”

The Postgraduate Diploma in Architecture: Professional Practice is designed to be undertaken whilst in full-time employment within an architectural practice or related construction industry organisation. For next session we anticipate that it will run entirely on-line, using a wide variety of distance learning methods including live-streamed events, such as webinars and on-line workshops given by leading experts, together with regular individual tutorials, and supported by an extensive on-line resource of detailed course notes and pre-recorded video presentations.

The Welsh School of Architecture is currently welcoming applications for the Master of Design Administration, and the Postgraduate Diploma in Architecture: Professional Practice, both directed by Professor Sarah Lupton. For all enquiries please contact her at
