Architecture / Architecture (International) (RIBA Part 1) - University of Huddersfield

**Experiencing buildings rather than just looking at photographs in a lecture theatre gives you a better understanding of how space is used. So if you choose the international strand of this course, you’ll have the opportunity to go on an extended field study visit to a non-European location. We want to give you the skills to progress to the next stage of your architectural career.** There are so many inspiring buildings and environments – not just in Europe, but across the world. This course takes a unique approach to architecture by enabling you to look at places and cultures on an international scale. On this course you can - - Look at different regions and the cultural context behind their architecture, and create your own designs in response. - Focus on helping you create designs that are sustainable, inspiring and humane. We’ll also give you the chance to develop your skills through the latest digital and computer aided technologies, such as 3D printing and Building Information Modelling (BIM). - Choose one of two strands - ‘Architecture’ explores the complex regional, cultural, ethical and environmental issues that underlie the built environment. And ‘Architecture (International)’ gives you a chance to put into practice what you’ve learned through an extended field trip to a location beyond Europe. Recent graduates have visited Vietnam, Malaysia, India and China. If you do choose to take the international option in your final year, the extended field trip is compulsory and you’ll have to fund your own place. Just to give you an idea, the average cost of the trip in the past few years has been around £1,400 per student. - Study on a course that is recognised by the Architects Registration Board (ARB), the body that regulates the architects’ profession in the UK. That’s good news if you’re hoping to continue on to be an architect, as you have to register with the ARB to be able to practise using the title ‘architect’ in the UK. We're also validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). In fact, if you graduate you will then gain exemption from RIBA’s Part 1 Professional Examinations. That’s the first of three examinations you need to pass to qualify and register as an architect, all of which you can undertake here at Huddersfield. So you could be well on the way towards your chosen profession. - See 'Additional Costs' under 'Fees and Finance' section
