BA(Hons) Architecture and Planning is unique because it’s accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).
It is recognised by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) as giving exemption from RIBA Part 1 examinations and is also accredited by the Board of Architects Malaysia.
This is one of five UWE Bristol courses that cover different specialisms in architecture.
