Course summary

Take the first step towards becoming an architect with our Architects Registration Board Part 1 prescribed course. Create meaningful, exhilarating and comforting spaces where people can live, work and play. Apply your knowledge and skills to real-world scenarios through site visits, study trips and in our architectural studios. This course has been validated to include an optional Sandwich Placement year in industry.From the design of a family home to an entire city, architects shape the world in which we live. Our course delivers the creative and technical skills you’ll need to help transform our built environment and succeed in architectural practice.We’ll help you to consider the cultural, environmental, technological, social, legal, economic and regulatory contexts of architecture. You’ll learn about its history, from ancient Greece to the present day, and explore the design of buildings as well as the technical and managerial skills needed to turn them into reality. You’ll consider ‘buildability’, sustainability and how to meet human needs in building design and you’ll learn how to produce architectural drawings, and to analyse, research and develop briefs.Architects have to switch effectively between being an artist, designer, planner, communicator, manager and leader. We’ll make sure you learn to reason logically, communicate clearly and read critically. You’ll become a creative problem-solver who can work independently and as a team member.In preparation for a career in professional practice, you’ll cover business and management as well as inter-relationships in the construction industry. You’ll be well prepared to contribute to the running of a successful practice.At our end-of-year Summer Exhibition, you’ll have the chance to display your work to the public.Each year the School of Architecture organises a study visit to a European city. There is a cost associated with participating in the study visit, which typically lasts 5 days. During the visit, students and staff experience another culture and see how this is represented through both historic and contemporary architecture and in the city's urban planning. Recent study visits have included trips to Lisbon, Venice, Rome, and Vienna.Our BA (Hons) Architecture course gives you exemption from the Part 1 examinations required by the Architects Registration Board (ARB). This means that when you complete the course you’ll have fulfilled the first part of the three-part process required to become a registered architect in the United Kingdom.
