UK Architecture Courses

Introduction to Architecture

Architecture courses at UK universities focus on the technological, design, cultural and historical elements of the subject, and lectures on history and theory will take place alongside art and 3D design. This provides students with the best approach to learning about each element of the profession.

It takes seven years to become a fully qualified architect, combining five years of study followed by two years of professional training and practical work before final exams. Students will become members of the RIBA, the Royal Institute of British Architects, after their initial three-year undergraduate degree, before enrolling on a BArch, Diploma or March degree.

Prospective students require patience, hard work and dedication to become architects, but the rewards are huge. The Times University Guide recently reported that three years into their careers, architects are amongst the least likely of all graduates to be unhappy with their profession.
