    Course Summary

    Architecture is seen by many as one of the driving forces of civilisation – it has been one of the most respected professions since before records began, and many ancient societies are known primarily by the buildings ant temples they left behind. The study of architecture is largely coming to terms with the various technical, legal and aesthetic demands on meeting humanity’s need for shelter, safety and privacy.

    As part of this program, you’ll explore the latest developments in structural engineering, materials science and interior design, and take part in a tradition that is as old as the very concept of ‘building’. You’ll also explore the fields which underlie architecture, including professional responsibility, sociology, ecology, critical theory and history. As this is a graduate level program, it gives you the opportunity to conduct your own research in the University’s modern laboratories and other facilities. You’ll also be able to explore one or more specialties.

    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.
