Course Details

Year 1

You will build prowess in architectural computer graphics and the basic principles of structure and design, as well as basic research skills.

You will begin to think about professional enterprise and angles on problems that occur in the built environment. We encourage students to start thinking about their contextual studies research.

Year 2

In the second year of this degree in architecture, you will gain a greater understanding of urban design, branded environments, rehabilitation projects and the history of the city. This will allow you to enhance your practice and develop your approach to design work.

We set briefs that will encourage you to collaborate with other students and create work as part of a design team.

Year 3

You will bring your learning together in a final negotiated major project, where you will investigate and make architectural design decisions. You will also carry out a negotiated project which takes the form of a live brief. Furthermore, we ask students to show their contextual studies research and thinking in a long-form dissertation. You will leave with a portfolio that showcases your enhanced skillset in the various strands of entry-level architecture.
