There are two strands to the course; Architecture and Architecture (International). Both have a highly distinctive approach to the subject, allowing you to explore different cultural regions and design your own innovative, beautiful, humane and sustainable architecture in response. The social nature of the course means that you’ll experience ideas and influences that are as diverse as they are creative. Why study Architecture?
- Both strands will give you an opportunity to explore the complex regional, cultural, ethical and environmental issues that’ll underpin your development as an architect. The International strand provides the option to do this through an extended field study to a non-European location.
- Upon graduating you'd be able to work in a wide range of architectural practices and could be sought after for your practical ability and creative flair. You’ll be well prepared to work in a professional environment and ready to progress to the next stage of your architectural career.
- The course is recognised by the Architects Registration Board (ARB), the body that regulates the architects’ profession in the UK. Good news if you’re hoping to continue on to be an architect, as you have to register with the ARB to be able to practise using the title ‘architect’ in the UK.
