“I am a sixth form student who was deciding between studying architecture and engineering at university and have since decided on studying architecture through the inspiring summer course at Cambridge.”
My name is Katherine Sawey and I am a sixth form student at St. Swithun’s School in Winchester. I attended Cambridge Immerse in July 2017 to study architecture. This enhanced my love for the subject and since then I have won the Arkwright Engineering Scholarship and taken part in a workshop organised by my sponsors: The Happold Foundation. I worked on my technical drawing and CAD skills while I was there which I now teach to fellow students in an extra curricular club that I started at my school. I have also helped out in Art and Design lessons for 7-9 year olds.This, alongside my completion of Bronze and Silver Duke of Edinburgh, has helped me with my leadership as I am deputy head of house. I have competed in multiple architecture design competitions for ArchDaily. I have had work experience with World Programming which is a computing company because as well as architecture I am also interested in Virtual Reality and how it it will be used in the future. Moreover, I am currently working on an Extended Project Qualification in architecture in which I am redesigning monuments with other cultures in mind. I lived in the Middle East for 8 years which has made me more interested in different cultures and keen to explore the world.
