Program Description

By studying BA (Hons) Architecture at ARU, you’ll gain the theoretical, technical and design skills to do this – and to work as a professional architect. Our architecture studios are exciting, creative places with industry-standard equipment. Here, our experts will deliver a learner-centred and research-led approach to architecture. You’ll become skilled in developing design concepts, experimenting with different media, and representing your ideas through drawings, physical and digital models. But you won’t be restricted to the studio. You’ll go on site visits so you can analyse the language and style of buildings, their construction, and see projects taking shape in real life. Together, we’ll explore building design, ‘buildability’ and sustainability.
