Take the first step towards becoming an architect with our BSc Architecture degree. A Part 1 course, you will be taught by experienced, practising architects and leading academics.
The Architects Registration Board (ARB) has prescribed our BSc (Hons) Architecture degree under the Architects Act 1997. One of the requirements for gaining a professional architecture qualification is to study on a prescribed course.
Our degree is also validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). This is formal recognition from RIBA that our degree achieves the standards needed to prepare students for the professional practice of architecture.
We sit within the renowned School of the Built Environment, which has strong industry links and an outstanding employability record — 98% of graduates are in work or further study six months after graduating. (Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey, 2016-17).
All students will have the chance to showcase their work at an end of year show, and will be offered career support opportunities.
Typical roles of BSc Architecture graduates include architectural assistant and, after qualification, architect. Our graduates will also be well-placed to move into other careers within the sector, such as project management, planning, estate management, surveying, and urban design. Other opportunities include careers in graphic design, interior design or the gaming industry.
We offer the opportunity to work on live projects as part of your undergraduate degree, enabling you to explore and extend your ideas, working alongside our industry partners and experienced architects.
In May 2018, our second-year students responded to a brief from the School of Arts & Communication Design to create a performance space.
As part of the cohort joining the BSc Architecture course in 2020, you will have the opportunity to apply for an annual £1,000 scholarship for each of the three years of the undergraduate degree (subject to conditions).
