Year 2: Students have a choice of 3 options for studio work, with projects ranging in scale from mapping studies and interior interventions to a reasonableâ??sized building; in addition, students take 4 lectureâ??based papers that build on knowledge acquired in the 1st year: studies in history and theories of architecture, urbanism and design; principles of construction; principles of structural design; principles of environmental design. Year 3: Students have a choice of 3 studios, these options vary in approach but all require students to produce a design for a building at the end of the year; there are 4 lectureâ??based papers that together carry 20 per cent of overall marks: advanced studies in historical and theoretical aspects of architecture and urbanism; introduction to the principles of professional practice; advanced studies in construction technology, structural analysis and environmental design related to case studies; and architectural engineering; a written dissertation of 7,000 to 9,000 words on a topic of the student's own choice accounts for the remaining 20 per cent of marks; exemption from Part 1 of the Royal Institute of British Architectsâ??
