This course is design focused, with emphasis on a research-informed approach that develops architects with a broad outlook – competent to work within both local and global communities and contexts. Accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the course focuses on productive architecture, emphasising 'thinking and making' within particular places and contexts.
This course aims to develop global architects adept to work within both local and international contexts.
The course embraces the challenge of contemporary architectural practice, focusing on educating the global architect through projects set in local, national and international contexts. It has six key strategic ambitions: education of the architect with a global outlook; research into and through design; a vertical studio, with students from both years working together; shaping the existing and the new built environment; celebrating individual and collaborative work; and awareness of architecture's cross-disciplinary nature.
Included in your fees is the opportunity to go on an overseas trip to gain that international and global context, whilst you'll be based in the University's Grade II listed and RIBA award-winning Arkwright building.

Nottingham is an absolutely amazing town, with the best student club ever, the Ocean. You’ll never hear the Baywatch theme the same way again. There’s a really nice student vibe, a ‘friendly’ rivalry between Nottingham U, Batman’s house, and three pubs claiming to be the oldest pub in Britain (that serve cheap pints to boot). The library is also amazing, with loads of study space, and the SU threw loads of great events, and I joined a few fantastic societies that really helped me experience all the uni had to offer.

It is/has been great. The course is really engaging, I have met so amazing people and friends and the facilities at NTU and in Nottingham are fantastic. I joined the Hip Hop dance society in 2nd year and it's one of the best things I've ever done. I've begun learning breakdance and other styles and made some of my best friends at uni. There's a great relationship between FFC and the Breakdance society at Uni of Nottingham also.
