Cambridge College | Ages 15 - 17
Interested in building an exciting future as an architect?
Our two-week programme is designed for students looking for an engaging introduction to the study of Architecture, which will help lay the foundations for an exciting future career in the industry. Develop your understanding of architecture as a collaborative practice by taking part in our Time to Shine group projects. Here you’ll utilise the subject knowledge studied on the course whilst working closely with your classmates to deliver thought-provoking presentations of your own. From being inspired by the architecture of the past to designing blueprints of the future, our Cambridge College Architecture course is designed to help best prepare you for the challenges ahead.
Take part in our exciting Future People Time to Shine project, in which you and your classmates will produce an architectural design for the house of the future.
Cambridge is a city rich in architectural history. In our Industry Experience, a professional architect will join the students to analyse the architectural importance of key historic buildings in this famous university city, before delivering a masterclass in architectural design.
At the end of each week, the whole school comes together to take part in a presentation project we call Time to Shine. These projects are a highlight of the week’s work and give students an opportunity to showcase their learning and development. Providing them with the chance to gain valuable experience in practising their collaboration and presentation skills in front of a larger audience.
Time to Shine Project: Architecture and the Design of Future Spaces
In the house of the future, what will you find? In what ways will smart technology integrate us with household technologies? How will the house of the future preserve energy, and be carbon-free? In Cambridge College’s Future People Time to Shine project, our architecture students will design the house of the future, incorporating theories of architectural design which focus on sustainability, technology, and empowerment.

When a student arrives, an SBC staff member wearing a bright yellow t-shirt will be waiting to greet her/him and accompany them to our Welcome Club. At our Airport Welcome Club, she/he will have the chance to meet other students arriving, have some light refreshments and relax. After a little rest, students will be accompanied by students and SBC staff to board the coach and be taken directly to the school in a private coach.
The Shared Transfer Service can be used by students using the following flight and train times:
Flight lands on arrival day: 06:00-17:00

The times outlined above also apply to students arriving and departing from Kings Cross St. Pancras train station.
If you book a flight outside of these times or to/from another UK airport, we can look at sending a staff member in a taxi to collect or drop off your child, but it will cost more than the Shared Transfer Service. Quotes are available upon request.
If you book a train or flight outside of these times or from another London airport, please contact your Admissions Manager for a private taxi quote. Please note this will cost more than our Shared Transfer Service from Heathrow, Kings Cross St. Pancras (& Gatwick for Earlscliffe students)
Flights must be booked on the arrival and departure dates so that all students can arrive and depart the course at the correct times.
The course is pitched at quite a high level of challenge, but our teachers are encouraged to differentiate learning materials in order to teach mixed ability classes.
For this course, participants must have a minimum level of B1.
Each student is awarded with a certificate of completion during our graduation ceremony at the end of the program.
A variety of SBC handouts are provided for all students, which were designed by our own academic team.
Notebooks and folders are provided. But students should have their own pens.
Not usually, but if they are then students are notified in advance as part of their welcome pack.
