You will be part of a vibrant, multidisciplinary learning community, studying alongside students from other architecture and built environment courses.
You'll benefit from a range of specialist facilities and resources that will provide you with a unique learning environment during your studies with us. This includes access to a designated design studio space, seven days a week, so you can work individually or in groups whenever you want.

Within our school, there are Mac and PC suites for use specifically by our students with industry standard software installed (such as Revit, AutoCAD, DesignBuilder, IES, THERM). Our software is reviewed and updated every year to keep the latest up to date software available.
Throughout your course, you will use and have access to specialist built equipment to develop your practical skills. Examples of the equipment available include thermographic cameras, thermal comfort units, sound meters, light meters, spectrometers, conductance and capacitance damp meters, salts detectors and air quality sensors.
