It aims to produce exceptional architects through an education that is immersed in hands-on experiences.Architects are involved in the planning and design of the buildings and spaces we inhabit. Architecture is everywhere and brings together many fields of human endeavour, including art, history, physics, engineering, and more.Our Architecture undergraduate degree is an innovative course founded on Loughborough's 100 years of 'theory and practice' culture to foster learning in both the University and the workplace.

More specifically, the Architecture degree exploits our internationally-renowned expertise across the built environment disciplines, including construction, engineering, and building energy. A significant part of the Architecture degree is studio-based, supported by a dedicated team of architectural practitioners.Every year, we hold an End of Year Show to celebrate the year’s achievements and showcase student work to practitioners interested in hiring our students and graduates.The course will exempt you from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part I exam.
