The Architecture BSc (Hons) course at Queen's University Belfast equips students with a thorough knowledge of architectural theory and design principles.
As a Russell Group university and ranked Number Six in the Guardian League tables (2020), Queen’s is one of the best places in the UK to study architecture.
With its strong studio culture, the BSc (Hons) Architecture encourages professionalism, creativity, research and analysis, critical thinking, independence and a range of communication skills from sketching to 3D printing. Attracting both local and international students, and staffed by individuals whose research and practice is internationally renown, graduates of the programme emerge professional, well-connected and with friends for life all over the world.
The programme is articulated around three interconnected and overlapping areas: Architectural Design and Communication (studio), History and Theory of Architecture and Technology, and Environment.
Year One provides an introduction to the fundamentals of architecture while Years two and three allow for deeper investigations and engagement across a range of contemporary themes. Study trips, joint studio projects for second and third-year students, live projects for first and fifth-year students, and connections with planning and engineering students all enrich the curriculum. A well-established architecture society (ArcSoc) provides another cultural and social agenda of lectures, workshops and other events for our students.
