The Course

This vocational programme offers flexibility to tailor your learning within a framework that satisfies the requirements of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB).

This course encourages critical reflection on personal aims, achievements and design philosophy within a framework of structured theoretical debate and individual research. There is an emphasis on developing professional skills through individual study, group work and studio activities.

Students may utilise laboratories and workshops to employ traditional model-making techniques, as well as digital fabrication technologies. After successful completion of the programme, you may choose to progress to the Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Practice and Management in Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 3) as a pathway to becoming a registered architect.
