Course summary

Combine academic study with placement experience to develop the fundamental skills needed to professionally qualify as an Architect.

Our course gives you the practical and creative skills you need to explore, analyse and communicate architectural proposals. You’ll combine project work in design studios and studies in history, theory and the science of architecture with practical experience gained in practice. Through integrating all aspects of architecture, you’ll learn how to successfully control, compose and construct internal spaces and external forms.

Placement

We blend architectural studies with professional experience to help you get the best out of your degree. Our course integrates two placements (lasting between three to six months) into the second semesters of year 2 and year 3, making it easier for you to develop and transfer your skills between study and placement. You'll be able to apply your university learning in a practical context and use your placement experience to improve the architectural skills you’ll use later in your course. It also gives you the professional experience you need to meet the requirements for the Part 1 qualification.

Professional accreditations

By studying a course with a professional accreditation, you could have the chance to get workplace experience, learn about new developments in the industry and take the first step to becoming a Chartered member of the RIBA. You may also be able to apply for jobs in the industry without having to do any more exams.

Careers

A degree at Bath can open up a variety of career opportunities to you. The high standard of creative and analytical skills, and training you graduate with will equip you to work in a range of industries. You could also choose to pursue a career in other design-related roles such as film-making or museum curation.
