Our architecture course is one of our flagship degrees at the University of East London, providing you with an excellent educational framework - and the first qualification you need to become a practising architect. We’ll teach you individually or in small groups, each led by a design tutor who is usually a practising architect. Our team of academics will also support you in areas of history, theory, technology and computing. We take a distinctly ‘hands-on’ approach to architecture. Our course emphasises learning through the process of making, and then reflecting critically on what has been made, developing your creativity and your critical judgement. Our driving forces are imagination, investigation, experimentation and innovation, and you’ll explore a wide variety of approaches, interests and areas of work. The core of architecture is the design studio, and the main emphasis of our course is developing your design ability. Since our key aim is to push your creativity and judgment to the maximum, you can expect the course to be highly demanding.
