About

The Architecture programme from London South Bank University promotes a studio-based culture which encourages debate and enquiry about contemporary societies, the postmodern city, and relationships between urban and landscape conditions. 

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

You'll consider these through a range of innovative and personal responses to architectural design projects; environmental and constructional technologies; critical research expressed in extended, structured writing, and the skills needed to operate as a progressive professional practitioner.

The Architecture programme from London South Bank University  will see you build on analytical design skills and professional competences established at undergraduate level, with a focus on innovation in design, construction, and resource efficient technology.  Working in vertical design studios, you will develop an understanding of, and methods relevant to contemporary professional practice, together with an ability to produce complex and diverse design proposals.

When you graduate you’ll be ready to start your second stage of professional practical experience in an architect’s office before progressing to the RIBA part 3 professional practice course and examination.

Employability

The course is well connected to key practices in London; many LSBU graduates also choose to work abroad. You may also use your qualifications outside architecture to enter careers such as journalism, project management, writing, teaching, research, or software and gaming design.

In addition to offering the university award of MArch: Master of Architecture (and RIBA part 2), the course is also a preparation for the second period of practical training.  The first period of practical training is usually, but not exclusively, undertaken following completion of the first degree in architecture (RIBA part 1).
