Architecture

Undergraduate courses starting in 2018

Architecture is the practice of designing and building structures. Architects use science, art, technology and humanities to create built environments.

Modern architecture integrates environmental and sustainable design principles with advanced technologies to produce functional and beautiful buildings. In our joint department, you'll work with civil engineers to better understand how to build the spaces you imagine and design. Through complex design challenges, you'll explore what makes a good building and learn how cultural, historical and socio-economic factors influence design decisions.

Learning experience

Expert academics

You’ll learn from academics with expertise in architecture and the built environment. Their international collaborations and research activities feed into undergraduate teaching and contribute to your learning experience.

Specialist facilities and equipment

Our facilities are central to your study experience. Our new building opened in 2016 and houses purpose-built research and teaching space for our architecture students. You'll have 24/7 access to design studios that support your architectural work in drawing and modelling. Watch our video of the design studios and facilities that you could use during your degree.

Graduate employability

The creative and analytical skills, and training you graduate with will equip you for a range of careers. Like many of our students, you could continue your studies to become a fully qualified architect. You can take this journey with us on our Master of Architecture and RIBA part 3 courses. You could choose to pursue a career in other design-related roles such as film-making or museum curation.
