What to expect from architecture degrees

The undergraduate architecture degree programs will focus on teaching students everything from how a beam works to how to accurately draw 3D diagrams and designs, training you to be proficient in hand drawing and using computer programs. The most of your studies however will be focused in studio design work, combining it with tutorials and critiquing lessons. These “crits” or critique sessions are where students are exposed to art and design education, where you present your work to your peers and tutors and receive feedback for it.


Students of these courses will also attend lecture in art history, architectural history, theory and technology, and computer aided design lessons. All of this aims to equip students with the adequate proficiency in multiple design programs to help them complete individual projects. Essays are therefore a staple for academic architecture degrees, as you will visit important buildings and places of architectural interest.


Those who study architecture at undergraduate level will graduate in three to four years with a BA or BSc depending on the program. In the UK this bachelor’s qualification will usually include the ARB/RIBA (Architects Registration Board/Royal Institute of British Architects) Part 1 examinations, which you need before taking the Part 2 examinations (often included within a Masters in Architecture) and Part 3 examinations (a further postgraduate degree or relevant experience). These ‘parts’ are the official ARB/RIBA requirements which all training architects are required to gain in addition to practical experience.
