Our course meets ARB/RIBA requirements for part 2 architectural education, giving you the enhanced architectural knowledge and practical experience you need to create complex design proposals.Our course integrates a semester-long placement at the start of your first year. Combining academic with professional experience in this way will help you relate design and management theories to practice. It also develops your understanding of the changing role of the Architect in the construction industry.Lectures in your second semester cover a range of topics from architectural history, theory and science to sustainability and urban design. You could also have the opportunity to take a field trip and workshop based in another city in the UK or Europe.In your second year, you’ll investigate design in more depth through research and studio projects. This gives you the chance to focus on areas of architecture that interest you. Through group project work, you'll analyse architectural possibilities to create sustainable building and urban design solutions. You’ll study a city of your choice and develop a project brief for your final studio project.
