The degree gives a Part One level professional qualification and you will benefit from our strong links with practice and industry, which enables our students to secure jobs in top UK and international practices. Field study trips abroad are seen as an essential component of architectural education and all our first year BArch students spend time on a week-long trip to Europe, paid for by the department. Research in architecture, urban design and sustainable energy technologies and our innovative work in green issues and sustainability informs our teaching. Additionally, you will learn in our specialised workshop facilities such as our new centre for 3D design offering specialised facilities for digital fabrication, laser cutting and 3D printing.
In the first year you are introduced to the main themes of the discipline: architectural design; structures; construction; environmental design; and the history and theory of architectural design. Key topics include integrated design in architecture and architectural design studio modules. Studio projects will have an added complexity in year two and you will have the opportunity to visit construction sites to gain first-hand knowledge of how designers work. In the second semester there are opportunities to study abroad. In your third year you will develop a thorough understanding of all of the key themes and you will develop your role within the architectural profession as part of the practice and management module.
