**About this course**

Architecture has the power to transform communities and enhance society. It is rewarding, practical, creative and leads to a wealth of career opportunities.

On this course, you’ll develop skills and knowledge through tackling practical design projects. Projects are often set by external organisations, giving you real experience of working for a professional client. These projects take up at least 50 per cent of your time on the course.

You’ll work in our purpose-built architecture studios, learning skills such as casting, pencil and charcoal rendering, detailed largescale model-making, computer based graphics and CAD drawing. You’ll also examine the cultural, historical, social, sustainable, material and technical issues that concern architecture. Through design work, a thesis and a dissertation, you’ll be able to pursue your individual interests.

**Applying for this course**

We are interested in your creative ability as well as your academic achievement. You will be asked to show a portfolio of work during your interview for this course and you can view guidance on what you should include here:
