Course Description

Our undergraduate and postgraduate apprenticeship programme is intended to provide the three stages of education and training, which when successfully completed, will satisfy the Architects Registration Board requirements for registration as an architect in the UK.

We'll teach you to consider structural integrity, the character and location of a site, methods of construction, value for money, design quality, impact on the environment, as well as the legal responsibilities for life safety and statutory consents. Full completion of the apprenticeship qualifies you as a Master of Architecture (MArch) and provides you with Postgraduate Diploma in Professional Practice and the professional award of RIBA Part II & III.

The architects are educated, trained, and registered professionals who plan, design, and review the construction of buildings for a client.  They use their skills and knowledge to offer creative problem solving and strategic advice related to various types of building, arts, and construction projects. This includes developing building designs taking into account a range of complex issues such as structural integrity, the character and location of a site, methods of construction, value for money, design quality, impact on the environment, as well as the legal responsibilities for life safety and statutory consents.

Architects work responsibly to deliver the interests of their clients and the core requirements of cost, time, and quality for the end user.
