Course summary

Immerse yourself in the art and science of Architecture through studio-based learning and placement experience. Take your first steps to becoming a qualified Architect.Our RIBA part 1 approved degree is a great place to start your training to become 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 challenge you to integrate the principles of structural, environmental, and sustainable design into your work. You’ll use your expanding knowledge of materials and the assembly of building elements to inform how you approach design. A unique part of our course is the opportunity to work with civil engineering students on some projects during your degree. This cross-discipline teamwork gives you an insight into the design problems and professional relationships you could experience in your career. And it improves your understanding of the technical aspects of designing structures.We also offer you a distinct study experience to most other universities in the UK through our integrated placements. You’ll go on two placements (lasting between three to six months) as part of your four-year degree, fulfilling the practical experience element needed for a RIBA part 1 qualification.Learn from experts in the fieldYou’ll learn from academics with expertise in architecture and the built environment, including innovative materials and sustainable design.
