ENHANCING THE STUDENT EXPERIENCE [2013]

This paper seeks to outline the role that students themselves play in enhancing the education environment at Schools of Architecture. Two examples are used to put forward this argument: i) the Manchester Student Society of Architecture (MSSA); ii) the Architecture Students Network (ASN). Presentations outlining these two case studies were presented at the 15th ENHSA in 2012 by Carrie Bayley, a representative of the MSSA, and Luke Butcher, a representative of the ASN. This paper was presented at the 15th Meeting of ENHSA, Chania, Crete, 4th September 2012
