    Course Summary

    The University of Suffolk’s BA in Architecture is the perfect choice for a technically minded student who wants to bring art and science together in a professional practice.

    You’ll learn as much in the design studio as in class, working as a part of a dynamic and supportive community of architecture students. You’ll gain experience and come to better understand the technical, ethical and aesthetic applications of the discipline by working collaboratively on both moot and live briefs.

    This degree program is engineered to give you the academic, technical and practical skills that you’ll need to work as a professional in the field. This matches the expectations set by professional bodies such as the QAA, RIBA and ARB. In order to give you real world experience within your chosen specialty, you’ll be able to engage with the university’s partner organisations both nationally and overseas. You may be able to study abroad at institutions like NTUAthens or Lusofona in Lisbon, for example.

    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.

    The curriculum of the University of Suffolk’s courses takes advantage of the school’s smaller size to make best use of flexible, creative learning. Traditional models (lectures, seminars, etc.) will be used side by side with Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL) and fully integrated employability content.

    In addition to optional participation in placements and internships in order to impart real world skills pertaining to your chosen specialty, you’ll be taught widely applicable (and highly transferrable) skills.

    UOS’s degree programs are all designed to make you a highly employable graduate. The curriculum is constantly updated to ensure that you are learning the best practices of a wide range of organisations, and that you are familiar with the latest thinking in the field. Recent graduates have become Technologists, Visualisers and Specialist Designers. Some have become RIBA Part I Architectural Assistants, Technicians and Architectural Designers. Others have gone into post-graduate study or gotten their RIBA Part II qualifications.

    Course Outline

    Successful completion will result in a full BA degree.

    Students must typically have been awarded 112 UCAS Tariff Points to apply. 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 6.0 overall with no section scoring less than 5.5 would qualify, for example.
