We believe people should be closely involved in the planning and design of their own communities. This ethos makes us one of the most innovative and influential architecture schools in the UK.

This course is a rare opportunity to qualify as both an architect and a town planner. The degree is recognised by the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI), validated by the RIBA (Part 2 level) and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB).

Your study focuses on a range of themed, design-based studios dedicated to specific areas of practice or research. There are compulsory modules in town planning, humanities management and building sciences, and an integrated town and regional planning project.

To qualify as an architect, you’ll produce at least one comprehensive design project.
