London Metropolitan University

Course Introduction

The extended degree route provides an intensive preparatory or 'Foundation' year prior to progression onto the BA Architecture (RIBA Part 1) or BA Interior Architecture and Design among others at The Cass. This initial year introduces a broad range of design skills and techniques and outlines ways of thinking about design and the ideas that inform architecture and interior design. Students who successfully complete the course have a substantial portfolio of high quality work and progress onto the first year of a degree in either architecture, interior architecture or interior design within the Faculty. Added value: You can benefit from the department's links with architectural and design schools in Belgium, Finland, Germany, Italy, Turkey, South Korea, Ukraine and the USA.
