Study style

This degree is part of our suite of Architecture, Construction and Built Environment courses. You will be studying in our studios on projects with peers from other subjects such as Architecture, Quantity Surveying, Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture, where you develop the necessary skills to work collaboratively in multidisciplinary teams, within construction and built development projects.

Through lectures, you’ll develop a broad knowledge and understanding of all aspects of the project life-cycle from inception, through design phase, construction to building completion and beyond.

In the First year of your course, explore modules such as sustainable construction and design, building surveying, Building Information Modelling (BIM) and digital software. In the second and third years you’ll explore larger architectural technology and construction projects, investigate pre-contract procedures and specialisms within optional modules.

We utilise a variety of assessment methods to help you develop your academic and professional skills, such as coursework, projects, reports, essays, exams, groupwork, seminars, presentations, practical workshops and portfolio’s. Precedent study field trips in the UK and abroad are essential part of our programmes.
