Norwich University of the Arts has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
BA (Hons) Architecture has been developed under EU guidelines to provide you with grounding in architecture, design and construction within an arts, design and media context. You will develop your design skills with an understanding of cultural, urban and contextual conditions, making use of the wide range of facilities on-site (such as the foundry, mould-making, metal, wood and plastic fabrication, laser cutting and model making workshops) and generating speculative design propositions at a range of scales. This course will develop your commercial awareness of the industry through a series of lectures by architecture professionals from firms such as Purcell, Caruso St John and Ash Sakula. You will graduate with a portfolio of design projects which displays critical thinking, spatial awareness and engages with diverse social-political sites and situations.

The University assesses you through the coursework you produce as you complete each unit. Each unit will require you to present a portfolio of work which may include finished pieces of work, written work, your research, and a reflective journal which allows you to evaluate your learning and highlight your strengths and areas for further development.
