  • Academic title
    Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2 Exemption), Dip
  • Course description
    The diploma programme balances academic and practice concerns; it concentrates on the skills needed to design well, build securely and communicate design ideas. The main discipline is architectural design informed by more advanced study in the school’s strong subjects of urban design, landscape and contextual studies.

    Coursework is structured sequentially, starting with research and the analysis of an urban area and building upon the knowledge obtained to introduce meaningful buildings and urban spaces into the fabric of cities and landscapes.

    The first year is introductory and experimental, with the work varying from urban design and theory to 1:1 technology fabrication. The second year is about developing and synthesising the thesis design in preparation for the student's entry into the next stage of their professional career. Students choose an atelier or design group in which to undertake their design work, each group having a different emphasis on landscape, technology, and culture. The part-time students develop their thesis design over two years and both part-time and full-time students undertake their dissertation or Thesis Design Research in their final year.
