The course will provide a balance of theory, design work and professional experience. You’ll carry out much of your work in the design studio which acts as a laboratory for trialing creative and critical ideas, and for developing fundamental architectural skills. Lectures and design teaching are delivered by people at the forefront of their field.

This course is recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and gives exemption from RIBA Part 1. Students on this route generally take a year out in professional practice before returning to a two year MArch in Architecture course either at Sheffield or another school. All our qualifications are prescribed by the Architects Registration Board which means you’ll be able to join the Register of Architects when you’ve completed your training.
