About

Architecture is a fascinating subject involving wide-ranging academic, practical and vocational activities. The Architecture (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster requires creativity and imagination as well as the inventive employment of environmental and technical knowledge.

Overview

Architecture is normally studied with a view to becoming a professional architect, however, embracing the fields of art, history and science, it is also an excellent vehicle for further academic study at postgraduate level in different disciplines, and other forms of career development.

At the heart of the Architecture (Honours) degree offered at the University of Westminster is a rich choice of different design studios in which students are taught in small groups by current practitioners – reflecting London’s dynamic architecture scene. There are also lecture courses in environmental and technical studies, history and theory of architecture, as well as numerous opportunities to engage with the architecture profession through construction site visits, internships, mentoring and a work placement. Field trips are offered in Year 2 and 3 and there are opportunities to study abroad in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and China.

Career Path 

  • Graduates find employment with established world-class architects such as Make, Squire and Partners, ORMS, BDP, Sheppard Robson Architects, and Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners. Other seek out dynamic, design led practices including David Kohn Architects, SODA Studio, and Shigeru Ban.
  • Alternative career paths can include experience in multi-disciplinary practice in interior and urban design and planning, or on the client side of architecture for a contractor, developer or housing provider. Graduates also progress to further study or research in technological and environmental subjects related to building design, and project or construction management.
