This 5 year course is professionally accredited by the ARB/RIBA.
The first three years (part 1) are designed to build basic knowledge and skills in Design, Communications, Architectural History/Theory and Sustainable Technology. Each year culminates in a major integrated design project which draws these parallel threads together.
The final two years (part 2) offer more opportunities to choose a programme of study which suits your emerging interests as a maturing designer. At level 4 you will choose an integrated design project from a series of offered options, and also select a ‘design research’ theme which leads into final year unit studios. These studios give you the opportunity to develop individual thesis projects which specialise in the aspects of architecture that most interest you.
Students at part 2 also have the opportunity to choose MArch with Urban Planning – this route leads to qualification as a chartered town planner as well as a registered architect.
2020 entry requirements:
