Course Summary:
Successful completion of our BArch (Hons) Architecture course is the first step to becoming a qualified architect, fulfiling Part 1 for the RIBA. Prescribed by the Architects' Registration Board (ARB) and validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), this hands-on, project-driven course is designed to help you develop your own design approach and style. You'll study in a studio culture that reflects a modern architectural practice, preparing you for your graduate career from day one. You'll be exposed to diverse aspects of architectural design, linking sustainability and urban design with business practice. You'll learn to creatively communicate your ideas through drawing, and explore spaces through model making and 3D visualisation, with project work providing opportunities to develop skills and experience. **Key features** - Our course is accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and prescribed the Architects' Registration Board (ARB), recognising the relevance and quality of our course content. - Work in our inspiring RIBA award-winning buildings, offering industry-standard facilities and studios, including a dedicated model-making studio, 3D printing and workshops for metal, timber and concrete. - Benefit from our Building Blocks financial package, supporting you throughout your time at NTU and enabling you to make the most of your studies. As well as money towards the cost of your course materials, you'll also benefit from study trips and live projects, included in the cost of your course fees, free personal protective equipment (PPE) and a pre-paid printing allowance. - Explore local and international architectural practice, with inspiring trips – both in the UK, and abroad to destinations such as Barcelona, Venice, Rotterdam, and Milan – included in your course fees. - Take part in live design projects, with briefs from real clients. Students recently worked with the UK house builder Davidsons on a project exploring ideas for future homes, RIBA East Midlands on a temporary architectural installation in a local space, and Nottingham-based charity Growin' Spaces on an inexpensive eco-friendly build. - Graduate with confidence by taking advantage of our final year mentoring programme, working alongside the RIBA. - Exhibit your work at our final year Degree Shows, attended by industry experts and prospective employers. - Hear visiting industry experts talk about their work. Previous visitors have included Cadval y Sola-Morales (Barcelona), Evans Vettori and Zaha Hadid Architects. - Network with industry professionals and display your work at our annual Architecture Exchange employability event. - 93% of students from this course are in graduate level employment within six months of finishing their degree (DLHE survey 2016/17).

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.
