Subject

Architecture

The programme is validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) as providing exemption from the RIBA Part 1 examinations. It is also accredited by the Lembaga Arkitek Malaysia, the Board of Architects Malaysia.

The course forms the first stage of a three-part programme of education and training for aspiring architects. The University of Lincoln also runs RIBA / ARB Parts 2 and 3 programmes, and all three parts are required to register as an architect in the UK..

Modules

In the first year, students are introduced to the history and theory of architecture, design processes and practices, building construction, environmental design and design theory. In the second and third years, students can work on a series of independent and collaborative projects. As students progress, they can mould research and design projects to explore current issues that are of interest. The course aims to release creative potential, explore design processes and lay a foundation of cultural and technical knowledge. Skills in drawing, computer-aided design, model-making and exhibition can be developed through a series of design projects.

Students have the opportunity to participate in practical explorations of materials and construction techniques which can lead to adventurous designs. The curriculum is designed to address the social, theoretical and contextual issues of living in the contemporary city. Design projects aim to build confidence in responding with imagination, humanity and concern for the environment.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Architecture had a difficult time a few years back during the great recession, but those days are over and the degree is in demand as house building and infrastructure have increased in importance. Most working architects secure jobs in the architecture industry, more usually starting as assistants rather than full-blown architects or chartered technicians. Some, however, move into management, design or marketing roles, where they find their planning, design and project management skills are very welcome. Nearly half the architecture-related jobs last year were in London or the South-East, and this group are rather more likely than average to find their jobs through personal contacts, so polish your networking skills, or see if you can get work experience if you want to succeed as an architect.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
