Architecture

Architecture

Architecture is a word with several different meanings. A general term to describe buildings and other physical structures, but also the art and science of designing buildings, and the design and method of construction.

Studying architecture will give you a thorough understanding and appreciation of the structures in which we live today, but also let you look to the future of design and how ideas can be made real and implemented.

Good to Know

Architecture is only taught as a Post-Graduate qualification in some countries. In almost all countries, Architects need to be registered with the professional body for architects in that country or region to be able to work as an Architect.
In countries where you can start Architecture as an undergraduate, you will need to continue to post graduate study to complete your qualification so the route to qualifying as an architect is very likely to be 5 years +
You should always check if the degree you are looking at is accredited by the appropriate professional body.
