Architecture and Environmental Design
Students on this programme learn environmental design methods which relate to the various stages of architectural design; they are able to evaluate existing buildings and design new ones following a combined bioclimatic and building occupant focused approach; the course covers both the wider contextual and sustainable approach to environmental design, and the more technical aspects of environmentally and energy conscious building design and performance; as well as taught modules, students take design-based modules where they apply quantitative and qualitative analysis to the study of existing built environments and to new design projects.

Applicants require fluent written and spoken English to study at postgraduate level; applicants without English as their 1st language require at least IELTS 6.5 or equivalent.
