    Course Summary

    A BA degree in Architecture from Leeds Beckett University will make you fully acquainted with all the basics of the architectural calling, from designing structures in the studio to creating spaces for people which show a sensitivity to a city’s culture, history and artistic traditions.

    The degree complies with RIBA standards, and will be an important step in preparing you for a career in Architecture. You’ll learn the basics of architecture with this program, and what you learn will exempt you from testing into the ARB (Architectural Registration Board)’s RIBA Part I examination.

    However, becoming a fully qualified architect is a seven year process. This program achieves years 1-3, but to gain exemption from part II of the RIBA examination you’ll need to go on to complete a Master of Architecture (March) degree either at Leeds Beckett or another fine university.

    In addition, you can take advantage of the Leeds School of Architecture’s PEDR licensure support services.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Learning And Teaching

    Leeds Beckett University’s Architecture BA program is delivered primarily through lectures, computer workshops and seminar sessions, and will feature a great deal of studio time. Some modules may be available as distance learning or blended learning programs. Though these modules will include less face-to-face time with the course tutor, many educational technologies are available to provide a fully interactive learning experience.

    The university can offer additional support in terms of your written English, numeracy and academic skills, or for any special needs you may have.

    Career Possibilities

    This degree is an excellent way to begin the seven year process of becoming a fully qualified architect. It is ARB and RIBA certified, and provides the maximum number of exemptions from those tests.

    Recent graduates of the program typically go on to study at the post graduate level, but those who do enter the workforce directly often become Building Surveyors, Interior or Spatial Designers, or Architectural Technologists.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 3 year BA degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned 128 UCAS Tariff points or the international equivalent. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.5 overall with no section scoring less than 6.0 would qualify, for example.
