About the course

This two-year course gives you the opportunity to explore architecture in a broad-based manner through theoretical and practical work. It demands a high level of design ability and self-motivation while giving you the chance to explore and develop projects related to your own interests.

You’ll appraise current theoretical approaches to architecture and urban design then assess and show their relevance in existing and proposed contexts. You’ll also develop and demonstrate formal and technical architectural ability.

If you obtain all diploma credits at first sitting you'll have the opportunity to proceed to Masters, thus converting your Diploma into a MArch. This requires an extra three months of study.

Student Profile(s)

Stanislava Delieva

As a foreign student, I’m really glad I joined the Advanced Architectural Design course at the University of Strathclyde. The course gave me exceptional artistic freedom of creating my own design briefs. With the support of my tutors and by working in classes, I could reinforce and explore even more aspects of my design thesis.
