Course content

This course is design focused, with emphasis on a research-informed approach that aims to develop architects with a broad outlook – competent to work within both local and global communities and contexts. Accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), the course focuses on productive architecture, emphasising ‘thinking and making’ within particular places and contexts.

The course embraces the challenge of contemporary architectural practice, focusing on educating the global architect through projects set in local, national, and international contexts.

The course has six key strategic ambitions including:

· education of the architect with a global outlook;

· research into and through design;

· a vertical studio, with students from both years working together;

· shaping the existing and the new built environment;

· celebrating individual and collaborative work; and

· awareness of architecture’s cross-disciplinary nature.

Included in the course fees is the opportunity to go on an overseas trip. Students recently went to Turin, Italy, and visited factory sites for potential development.
