Architecture is a rewarding and culturally important profession – and at Brighton we see architecture as a social activity as well as a technical exploration. As a student at Brighton, you will build a thorough understanding of modern architectural practices, informed by consideration of the broader context of social engagement; who is it for, what informs its design and structure, and what will its legacy be?You will develop your architectural voice through your own projects and by working in collaboration with other students from all years of the degree. This environment of enquiry and work partnerships, as well as individual time management, is sound preparation for professional practice. Career planning is integral to your learning from the outset, and our links with RIBA South East provide opportunities including mentoring and mock interviews with practising architects. We focus on real-world skills, and you will learn on-site through projects with local communities and from the construction of our annual exhibition pavilion.The broad approach that we take to architecture will prepare you for the many forms that contemporary professional practice takes these days.
