University of Bath has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The professional training you need to practise as an architect, combining studio-based design with technical knowledge of materials and construction techniques. Our course gives you the practical and creative skills you need to explore, analyse and communicate architectural proposals. You'll combine project work in design studios with a grounding in the historic and cultural theory of architecture. Through integrating science, mathematics and art, you’ll learn how to control, manipulate and compose internal spaces and external forms. At Bath, we focus your studies around studio work from the start. This is where you’ll work collaboratively to produce integrated design solutions. And, more importantly, where you’ll develop the practical skills to realise your creative potential. Individual and group projects will challenge you to integrate the principles of structural, environmental and sustainable design into your work. Your knowledge of materials and the assembly of building elements will help inform how you approach design. Working with civil engineering students develops your understanding of the technical aspects of designing structures. This cross-discipline teamwork gives you an insight into the design problems and professional relationships you could experience in your career. Your study experience at Bath will be distinct from that offered by most other universities in the UK. You’ll go on two six-month placements as part of your four-year degree to help you on your journey to becoming a qualified Architect. You could also have the opportunity to study abroad as part of a student exchange agreement.
