Course summary

This multidisciplinary degree will help you expand your knowledge and develop expertise in the fields of architecture and urban planning.

Course overview

This degree engages you in the processes involved in the production of the urban spaces that shape our cities, from the design of buildings and urban spaces to the consideration of urban issues.

You’ll be inspired by the work of innovative architects and planners whose approach aims to encourage people to actively participate in the design of their environment.

You will study a range of modules spanning our expertise in architecture, urban design, social and political theory. You'll also select from modules in history and sociology, urban planning and informal housing and development, and social enterprise, economics and business.

Your understanding of how architecture and cities can be developed will be supported through design projects, historical examples and theoretical ideas.

Teaching methods

This programme provides a mix of studio design projects and traditional teaching. A typical week will involve working in the studio, either in groups developing design projects or working independently.

Methods include:

  • tutorials and support
  • traditional lectures and seminars
  • site visits and library-based research
  • individual and group project work

Work placement

Get career ready with a work placement and leave as a confident professional in your field. You can apply to spend 9 to 12 months working in any organisation in the world, and receive University support from our dedicated team to secure your dream placement. Work placements take place between stages 2 and 3.

If you choose to take a work placement, it will extend your degree by a year. A work placement is not available if you're spending a year studying abroad. Placements are subject to availability.

Study abroad

Experience life in another country by choosing to study abroad as part of your degree. You’ll be encouraged to embrace fun and challenging experiences, make connections with new communities and graduate as a globally aware professional, ready for your future.

In Stage 2 you can choose to spend a whole semester studying in Europe as part of a study abroad exchange.
