What our students say...

i

Extensive Design Studio Experience

The core of the programme is the design studio, complemented by courses in the humanities, technology, design computation and professional practice. Students on the programme play an active part in the entire studio learning and learn to use tools, digital or analogue, that help them describe places and ideas as an architect.
