Foundation Entry degree courses are designed for students who have the ability to study for a degree, but don’t have the necessary formal qualifications to enter directly onto their chosen Honours degree programme. If you are interested in the technical side of architecture, rather than the creative, then our fully accredited degree will develop your expertise in the technology, management and legal aspects of construction. The course covers the range of design problems that architectural technologists work on, including commercial, industrial, retail, leisure and residential projects and these may involve new-build, adaptation, restoration maintenance or interiors. You will be set a number of design projects throughout the course and may undertake these in groups or on an individual basis, to gain the knowledge and skills which enable you to find efficient and effective solutions to the design and construction of buildings. You will be encouraged to undertake work placements and internships during your studies. These can range from work experience as a result of a live project through to undertaking sandwich placements. There is also the opportunity for international study, through the Erasmus scheme to KEA in Copenhagen and through yearly overseas field trips. Our Architectural Technology degree is held in high regard by the wider architectural community for the quality of teaching and the number of graduates who go on to enjoy successful careers within the industry, regionally and nationally.
