Course content

This is a creative, studio-focused course with a strong commitment to design research. It offers an internationally transposable professional-level architectural education leading to a qualification that meets the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part 2 exemption. This course is listed in the Commonwealth Association of Architects' approved courses.

With the design studio taking centre stage during your studies, you will be challenged to develop solutions to a series of architectural design problems. Your course will explore current topical issues in architecture, including historical and philosophical thought, contemporary conditions of urban inhabitation, challenges to a sustainable ecology and the ramifications of modern technology. You will forge an individual approach to architecture as you explore your personal interests in relation to city, regional, national and global design perspectives.

The School is closely linked to professional societies, such as Leeds Society of Architects, West Yorkshire Society of Architects and RIBA Yorkshire region, and provides a vibrant environment for architectural debate. You will study with a diverse body of leading practitioners, academic educators and visiting professors who will provide a wide range of opportunities for architectural discussion, stimulation and engagement.
