Overview

Bachelor of Architectural Studies

Explore the design, theoretical and environmental aspects of architecture and the built environment in this three-year studio-based programme, the first step to becoming a registered architect.

The BAS introduces you to the fundamental aspects of architecture. Through studio courses, real world case studies and future-based speculation projects, you will develop your design skills and creative practice. You will have access to software used in the industry as well as fully-equipped workshops to bring your concepts to life.

To become a professional architect, you require the Master of Architecture (Professional); or one of our associated combined masters programmes. This is  usually undertaken immediately following the BAS programme.
