Emphasising design as a research practice, the Architecture (ARB-RIBA Part 2) course from the University for the Creative Arts challenges you to use your cross-disciplinary skills and knowledge to develop effective strategies and models for sustainable practice.


This may be within the context of the production of buildings, the spaces between them or the urban contexts in which they occur. 

On this Architecture (ARB-RIBA Part 2) course from the University for the Creative Arts, you'll consolidate your architectural experiences, both in education and in practice, while simultaneously questioning your preconceptions of the discipline. 

By the end, you'll be equipped to adopt a critical position within the profession and in wider society. 

You'll also be able to initiate and deliver projects grounded in design-based research, and continue a process of learning through practice-based experimentation and enquiry.

The course carries full and unconditional prescription from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB) as satisfying the Part 2 criteria.
