Study type Taught


During this course, you will develop as architectural designers and thinkers and move towards the ability to engage in architectural practice as independent and reflective practitioners. You will build on and further develop the knowledge, understanding and skill acquired during your first degree and a recommended initial period of work-based learning. The emphasis of this course is therefore to deepen and consolidate existing learning and skill, rather than to introduce a wide range of new subject material.
