Architecture courses at UK universities focus on the technological, design, cultural and historical elements of the subject, and lectures on history and theory will take place alongside art and 3D design. This provides students with the best approach to learning about each element of the profession.
It takes seven years to become a fully qualified architect, combining five years of study followed by two years of professional training and practical work before final exams. Students will become members of the RIBA, the Royal Institute of British Architects, after their initial three-year undergraduate degree, before enrolling on a BArch, Diploma or March degree.

Prospective students require patience, hard work and dedication to become architects, but the rewards are huge. The Times University Guide recently reported that three years into their careers, architects are amongst the least likely of all graduates to be unhappy with their profession.
A Bachelor of Architecture degree is your first step towards becoming a fully qualified architect and you’ll complete the course with exemption from RIBA Part 1. For graduates looking to further their architecture education, a Masters in Architecture is available as MArch, Master of Science (MSc) or Master of Art (MA).
After completing the seven years of study required to become a registered architect, graduates will find roles in architectural design, engineering and construction, preservation and urban planning.
English language, art and design and mathematics are all preferable subjects to have studied before applying to an Architecture programme, and you should also enjoy drawing freehand and have an interest in design and producing 3D work. At many UK universities, a portfolio of work is crucial in being offered a place.

I sincerely thank SI-UK for getting me accepted to UCL. The MSc in Urban Development and Planning is extremely competitive, but the right guidance provided by SI-UK made my dream of studying at University College London a reality. The services were exceptional from beginning to end.
