Course summary

This course has been developed in accordance with industry guidelines to give you a professionally grounded, challenging and creative education, focusing on architecture, principles of urbanism, landscape and building construction. You’ll work within a professional, studio-based architectural environment on a variety of industry projects, including houses, shops, museums, public buildings, squares, cities and civic centres.You’ll also visit and analyse places and engage with the social, political and economic factors that influence architecture and society. By working individually and in multidisciplinary teams, you’ll gain an understanding of cultural and urban conditions, learn how to improve the built environment and develop a sharp commercial awareness of the architecture industry.

The BA (Hons) Architecture award will provide graduates with a professional network to facilitate early career development after graduation.

The School of Creative Arts prides itself on providing our students with a strong technical and professional design education, and we place significant value on the preparation of our students for the world of work.

The Architecture programme has a range of world-class industry partners who engage with us in teaching and learning and in providing current and future thinking on contemporary practice.

We place our students in a unique position to understand, explore, and intervene in the changing landscape as it evolves from the ideal social settlement of the Garden Cities of the early twentieth century to the post-war New Towns and future cities.

Careers

As an architecture graduate you can opt to continue to the second stage of the architectural education (ARB/RIBA part 2), as well as decide to work within an architectural or interior architecture practice, or as part of a multi-disciplinary design consultancy. You may also move into areas such as urban design, real estate and retail design.

The course offers an excellent network of industry partners. You will work closely with architectural practices both nationally and internationally on a variety of projects and collaborations. Visiting lectures from the some of the most prestigious architectural practices contribute to the teaching and learning. In addition, we draw on exemplars from regional, national and international architecture to inform the teaching.

During the course of study, students produce a series of projects which result in a professional portfolio representing a high degree of spatial and technical resolution that shows the development of a clear design approach and provides evidence of their employability relevant to their preferred career ambitions.
