Why study an Architecture degree?

Architecture and Building are two subjects with wide appeal and great demand – wherever you live and whatever happens in the world, there will always be a need to build. To study abroad, the UK has some of the best universities for Architecture and Building.

The UK has a long history of innovative building and architecture, and is well known for pioneering infrastructure development. Thanks to this, Britain’s universities can offer students valuable insights into this highly practical discipline.

But what are the best universities for Architecture and Building?

Kaplan is proud to partner with universities that rank highly in both areas. In addition, our pathway courses offer progression to many degrees in Architecture and Engineering.

For example, The University of Nottingham runs a number of degrees related to Architecture, including Architectural Environment Engineering. These are available at both bachelor’s and master’s level.

The University of Nottingham is consistently noted to be one of the best universities in the UK for Architecture, and is currently ranked 8th (Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017).

The University of the West of England (UWE), Bristol is also highly regarded in Architecture, ranking 6th nationally in the field (Guardian University Guide 2017). A wide range of related degrees are available at UWE, including Interior Architecture and Architectural Technology & Design.

Students could opt to study Architectural Engineering at the University of Liverpool, which is ranked 9th in the subject (Times 2017).

Meanwhile, there are numerous Architecture and Building degrees available at the University of Brighton, which features in the top 20 for Architecture (Times 2017).

Building is closely related to Architecture, and so it is no surprise that these same universities generally enjoy excellent rankings in Building too.

Building Surveying, for instance, is on offer for Kaplan students at UWE Bristol, which is ranked 6th in Building (Times 2017).

Building Surveying is also available at Nottingham Trent University, which features in the UK’s top 10 in the field (Guardian 2017).
