In many countries, an architecture degree is the first step in becoming a qualified architect.
Courses typically last three or four years, with a further three or four years of study and work experience required to become fully qualified. Others choose to seek employment after graduating.
Launched on Monday, Dezeen Courses is a new resource for people who want to study architecture and design.
It presents details of undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, as well as short courses and remote learning programmes.
