The IHBC’s annual Gus Astley Student Award closes on 31 July, so if you have relevant coursework from any UK taught course – under-graduate or post-graduate, from 2017 OR 2108 – be sure to submit it online and on time to have a chance to receive their prizes at the IHBC’s Annual School in Nottingham in June 2019.

For the 2018 Award, as ever, a cash prize of £500 is on offer to the winner, with smaller cash awards to any commended entries. Free places at the IHBC’s 2019 Annual School, valued at around £500, are also on offer, so awardees can receive their prizes in person at the School Dinner in Nottingham in 2019.
Some details of the IHBC Student Awards:
- The Student Award is presented for an outstanding item of taught-coursework accepted as part of either under-graduate or post-graduate courses ending in the academic years either to 31 July 2017 OR 31 July 2018.
- The subject should relate to one aspect or more of ‘Built or Historic Environment Conservation’ in its widest sense, including, for example, its evaluation (eg history, research or surveying), management (eg policy, finance, planning or operations such as site management), and/ or intervention (eg design, technology or architecture).
- Submission for this award is ONLY possible online, but if your coursework can’t be easily digitised, we’re happy to receive a suitable digital record of it, such as a film record, just as long as the record can be authenticated by your course tutor in accordance with our guidance.
