Copenhagen architecture trip brings learning to life for Burnley College Students

Colourful buildings and exquisite architecture were brought to life as Burnley College Construction Students enjoyed a trip to Copenhagen. 

The trip, which was supported by the Student Services Enrichment Fund included visits to the Dansk Arkitektur Center, Maritime Museum, an architectural walking tour, cycling tour and boat trip on the three-day trip. 

Thirteen Students from Year 1 and 2 BTEC Level 3 Construction and the Built Environment made the trip as part of their studies which will lead them into careers such as Architecture and Quantity Surveying.  

This memorable visit was made even more special for some who had never ventured out of the country before. 

Sol Whittaker, Construction Curriculum Manager said the trip was a real eye-opener:


“It was fantastic to bring to life the topics they have covered in class, giving them a new awareness of buildings and how they are designed, but also experiencing the culture and learning about the rich history of the city.”

“From the brightly-coloured buildings at Nyhavn by the canal to the renaissance-styled Rosenborg Castle, there was a discovery to make around every corner in this vibrant and historic city. The memories of this trip will stay with the students for years to come.” 

There are now plans to incorporate a European trip into the course every year, to take in different built environments and increase students’ skills and experiences.
