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.At Bath, we focus your studies around studio work from the start. This is where you’ll work collaboratively to produce integrated design solutions. And, more importantly, where you’ll develop the practical skills to realise your creative potential. Individual and group projects will challenge you to integrate the principles of structural, environmental and sustainable design into your work. Your knowledge of materials and the assembly of building elements will help inform how you approach design. Working with civil engineering students develops your understanding of the technical aspects of designing structures. This cross-discipline teamwork gives you an insight into the design problems and professional relationships you could experience in your career.Your study experience at Bath will be distinct from that offered by most other universities in the UK. You’ll go on two placements (lasting between three to six months) as part of your four-year degree to help you on your journey to becoming a qualified Architect. You could also have the opportunity to study abroad as part of a student exchange agreement.TeachingYou’ll learn from academics with expertise in architecture and the built environment, including innovative materials and sustainable design. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience. Many of our design tutors are practising architects.FacilitiesOur facilities are central to your study experience. Our 4 East South building houses purpose-built research and teaching space for our architecture students. You'll have access to design studios that support your architectural work in drawing and modelling. Watch a video of our design studios and facilities or explore them in our virtual reality model, these are the spaces where you will develop and realise your ideas.CareersOur course is fully prescribed and validated by the ARB and RIBA, giving you the educational basis and professional experience you need to complete the first step toward becoming a qualified Architect. Like many of our students, you can continue this journey with us on our Master of Architecture and RIBA part 3 courses.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.
