If you want to pursue a design specialism within architecture this studio-based course will help you realise your ambitions.
You will take a research-by-design approach in a studio environment to help you develop your own specialism and research-based study.
We offer an international perspective on design and you will be encouraged to develop exciting design-led propositions on issues such as environmental sustainability, urban resilience and resource depletion.
You will study three themes - sustainable urbanism, facade design and architectural interiors. You will complete introductory and advanced projects in your chosen theme and you will have the opportunity to exhibit or publish your thesis work at the end of your course.
Applicants should either have at least a second class honours degree in the cognate subjects of Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Planning or Interior Design, at least a second class honours degree in a non-cognate subject supported by evidence of an aptitude for the subject applied for, or have equivalent experience or training, normally from within the work environment.
English Language Requirement : IELTS 6.5 with no skills below 6.0, or an equivalent qualification. The University provides excellent support for any applicant who may be required to undertake additional English language courses.
Mature Applicants : Our University welcomes applications from mature applicants who demonstrate academic potential. We usually require some evidence of recent academic study, for example completion of an access course, however recent relevant work experience may also be considered. Please note that for some of our professional courses all applicants will need to meet the specified entry criteria and in these cases work experience cannot be considered in lieu.
The School of Art, Architecture & Design is well recognised. We have world-renowned practitioners and academics in sustainable urbanism who have won international design competitions and have worked with and for leading design firms, such as Bauman Lyons Architects and MacCreanor Lavington.
The facade design tutorial team have worked on innovative designs for firms such as Foster, Atelier One, HOK, Ian Simpson, and Zaha Hadid. The architectural interiors team consists of practitioners, academics and designers, who specialise in themes such as building reuse and museum and exhibition design. Many of the students undertake live projects or competitions.
You will have access to an excellent learning environment which includes multimedia studios equipped with flip-top drawing boards, parallel motion boards, and model-making facilities, a 24/7 library and specialist workshops.
