ABOUT THE COURSE

Our cutting edge degree course in Architecture provides you with an excellent grounding in design, theory, history and building technology, whilst embracing conservation, sustainability and environmental issues. You will get the opportunity to compare and contrast local architecture and urban form with national and international examples on our overseas visits.

The location of UCLan Architecture, locally in Preston and more widely in the North West, provides an excellent learning environment. Urban issues and design; the dichotomy of countryside and town; contextual and cultural themes; conservation and regeneration are amongst the plethora of architectural issues relevant to the City.

Design is the core activity of Architecture at UCLan and we aim to provoke debate, encourage diversity and develop advances in the subject. You will gain experience of all aspects of building design and construction and will be well-equipped to meet the demands of a low carbon approach to the needs of society. This approach, together with an emphasis on the importance of employability and entrepreneurship, equips graduates with the skills to progress to architectural practice and professional accreditation or to a career in a related field.

EMPLOYABILITY

In 2015, 95% of our students were employed or completing further study after finishing their course, many at prestigious architecture firms including Fosters and Partners and Glenn Howells Architects.

OPPORTUNITIES

You will be encouraged to take part in:

  • Live build projects through Design Research North
  • International Field Trips
  • The Student mentoring initiative

  • Model Making & Skills Workshops
STUDENT SUCCESS

In the last two years, students on this course have been shortlisted for the finals of the International RIBA Presidents Medals awards, a unique achievement.
