About

Rebecca Hobbs graduated from the Kent Institute of Art and Design in 2001. She has worked in a number of practices including Cullinan Studio, London and lee Evans Partnership in Canterbury.

Her interest in education led her to complete a PGCE at the Institute of Education, University of London following a BA in textiles at Loughborough School of Art prior to her architectural training.

She has worked as a programme co-ordinator for the RIBA funded Building Opportunities Programme which involved offering design workshops for secondary schools in Kent.

In addition to tutoring on the KSAP BA programme, Rebecca is the Outreach and Student Success Officer. In 2013 she set up the Architecture Summer School together with a series of design workshops in local Partner Schools as part of the University’s widening participation programme.

In 2014 the Student Success initiative was set up to support the Equality, diversity and inclusivity remit for the University. The School’s initiative has led to a student led writing group being launched, drop in clinics and time management workshops being offered to all students.

Rebecca has her own sole gardening business and has completed the RHS Level 2 Horticulture course through Hadlow College. She is currently aiming to launch a Masters in Landscape Architecture at the School which will be starting in September 2018.
