To become an architect, you must have professional experience alongside your educational qualifications. In traditional courses, students take a three-year degree before working for a year in professional practice. Our degree takes a different approach to professional experience, integrating placements into the second and third years of a four-year course1. They are taken during the second semester and last for a minimum of three months each.
We believe that this distinctive approach gives you a more comprehensive education. You'll be able to apply what you have learnt to your placement, as well as use your professional experience in your studies. Combining your academic and practical experience also makes it easier for you to gain the educational basis you need to progress your journey to becoming a qualified architect.
