Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. Part art, part science - and completely fulfilling. Our cutting edge degree course in Architecture provides you with a comprehensive grounding in design, theory, history and building technology, whilst embracing conservation, sustainability and environmental issues. You’ll get the opportunity to compare and contrast Lancastrian architecture and urban form with national and international examples on our overseas visits. This course was recently validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA); we were particularly commended for our enviable facilities, as well as our focus on student experience, studio culture, support and employability. The Architecture degree at UCLan is expected to lead to Part I recognition by the Architects Registration Board (ARB), allowing you to proceed on a path to become registered architects and ARB members. Following successful progression from the course and a year’s experience in architectural practice or related field of work, you are able to enter the MArch Architecture Part II at UCLan. The MArch Architecture Part II is prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and Royal institute of Architects (RIBA) leading to Part 2 recognition, which allows you to proceed on a path to become a registered architect and ARB member.
