The Architecture BSc aims to inspire and exercise you in a wide and diverse range of experiences so as to develop an independent, creative, experimental and rigorous approach to design. You are guided in discovering your own vision in architecture within a vibrant and exciting culture.

  • Architecture BSc is renowned for its innovative and experimental research in the discipline, including design, history and theory, professional practice and innovative technology. The school has been voted the UK's best by The Architect's Journal every year since 2001.
  • Excellent resources, including an extensive workshop (known as the Bartlett Manufacturing and Design Exchange, or B-MADE) that is widely regarded as the best of its kind in UK architectural education.
  • B-MADE offers access to traditional woodwork and metalwork resources, as well as robotics, 3D printing, CNC machining, 3D scanning, advanced computing and materials testing.
  • All students participate in the annual Bartlett Summer Show, a major exhibition at the end of the academic year which attracts over 5,000 visitors.

In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).

Year one is centred on design studio projects which develop the central skills of observation, design, critical thinking and representation, emphasising the expression of ideas in three dimensions. Complementing this are lecture courses on history and theory, production of the built environment, and technology, as well as a field trip to a major European city in the second term.

In years two and three, you join one of up to ten design units. Each unit offers a specific architectural agenda, allowing you to develop personal architectural interests and to work with architecture in relation to subjects as diverse as craft, making, film, history, technology, philosophy and science.

Your work in the second and third year studio is complemented by core lecture, workshop and seminar series in computing, technology, history, theory and professional studies.
