Your journey to becoming a qualified architect begins here on our fully validated and accredited BA Architecture (Hons) (ARB-RIBA Part 1) course, taught at University for the Creative Arts Canterbury.


University for the Creative Arts provides a lively, progressive and creative experience - from the outset you’ll be designing new buildings and considering the world around you.

Throughout the Architecture (Hons) (ARB-RIBA Part 1) course, we'll challenge you to become highly skilled in technical drawing and design. You’ll also be encouraged to consider how architecture can have a wider impact on everything, from its immediate surroundings and social contexts, right through to the human body.

You will also benefit from dedicated studios, master a wealth of industry-grade technology and apparatus, and have the use of our Tracklab virtual reality studio.


Many of our graduates typically progress to one-year paid placements at architects’ offices, before continuing their studies at Master's level. Our alumni have secured rewarding careers internationally and nationally for more than 60 years.
