Four talented built environment undergraduates will go forward to the National Student Awards final, in September.  The South East branch region is particularly extensive, so four students from Universities across the entire area were selected.  The winners were announced at an Awards event hosted by Savills in London on 4th June.  They are:

Lauren Webster studying BscHons Architectural Technology at London South Bank
