With more than 2,000 students, the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at Westminster is one of the largest providers of built environment education in the country. The Faculty has achieved outstanding success in recent years in the RIBA Student Awards, which promote excellence in the study of architecture. Westminster students have won the RIBA Dissertation Medal six times since 2005, and the RIBA Silver Medal four times during the same time period. You will study at the recently refurbished Marylebone Campus, where a Â£20m development has provided world-class facilities including a state-of-the-art CAD lab, high-spec design studios and the cutting-edge Fabrication Laboratory â?? an innovative learning environment offering advanced digital making facilities. You will be taught by a team of academics with an international track record of academic and professional expertise. The course draws on its strong connections with architectural practice and central London location: students can apply for paid internships at the end of second year and in the final year of the course each student must undertake a work placement. In collaboration with the RIBA we also run a practice-mentoring programme. Preparation for practice includes a two-week placement with an architectural firm and guidance in developing your CV.
The structure of the course is primarily based on core modules, with one option module in years 2 and 3. Option modules are integrated within concurrent design projects together with the knowledge, skills and abilities generated by lectures in the core modules.
