Architecture and Planning (with Foundation Year)

BA(Hons) Architecture and Planning (with Foundation Year) is unique because it’s accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). It is recognised by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) as giving exemption from RIBA Part 1 examinations and is also accredited by the Board of Architects Malaysia. This is one of five UWE Bristol courses that cover different specialisms in architecture. Ranked 4th nationally for student satisfaction in our architecture courses (The Guardian University League Tables 2018), we produce sought-after graduates with specialist knowledge and the skill to create exciting buildings. The degree will build your creativity and develop your talent for finding solutions to a full range of realistic briefs. It will show you how to integrate technology seamlessly into design ideas and give you the confidence and skills to work in top architecture and planning practices. Gain broad-based knowledge and skills in architecture and planning. Work on conceptual and practical projects across different themes. Apply your learning on a year-long project combining the masterplanning of a complex urban area with rigorous brief development and research, all leading to a final architectural design project. Work on a six-week agency project in an architect's office, local planning authority, or other appropriate organisation. With a joint professional qualification, you’ll be sought after by employers in the UK and abroad. As a graduate, you’ll be ready for a career as an architect, architect-planner, urban designer, conservationist or town planner with a background in design.
