A combination of art and science, architecture is the process of planning, designing and fabricating large structures and buildings, whilst also considering functionality, durability and aesthetics through the use of different materials, technology and elements of design.
When a new building is designed and constructed, the architect plays a very important role in the process. With the worldwide population being at an all time high, architectural practice, as well as the construction industry, needs to keep with the modern built environment requirements.
A postgraduate degree in architecture will allow you to build on the knowledge gained at undergraduate level. The modules you study will cover the more complex and specialist areas of architecture. These modules could include sustainable architecture, material science, advanced praxis, and urban design.
Your degree will be delivered through lectures and seminars. Many architecture schools emphasise practical experience, and the application of your skills and knowledge. This means that you may have the chance to take part in a work placement, or attend masterclasses with industry experts.
China has long been regarded as a global superpower when it comes to economic, business and political standing. Its reputation as a higher education destination has taken longer to earn, but is rewarded on merit. The country's government has invested in university and higher education over the last few years, with the aim to increase the international student population. This investment has meant that there are many more courses offered in English than there were a few years ago, making China a new and exciting destination for international students.
