Home / Architecture & Building

An architecture degree offers you a unique combination of design, culture, science an technology. It gives you the skills you need to design and create new buildings, from private homes to skyscraper office towers, shopping centres and hotels.

Architecture courses are highly competitive, despite the relatively low starting graduate salary. They often take up to five years to complete, and should include plenty of practical training through internships. Make sure your architecture degree is accredited by local architecture organisations.

Once you graduate from architecture school, you are more likely to work in a private practice – often your own business. But you may also find creative and rewarding work for government or commercial organisations.

As well as architecture, you can also study urban design (and learn how to develop cities of the future), interior design or landscape design. Building courses are also available at colleges and university, giving you professional skills to make these designs come to life.
