Architecture is a creative and exciting design- based profession concerned with virtually all aspects of the built environment. It combines art, science and technology with business, social and environmental concerns.

Completing an accredited degree means you enter the workforce with a stamp of quality on your CV. In a competitive market, an accredited degree is an assurance of quality to employers and an advantage for you.

You’ll graduate with both an undergraduate and graduate degree, giving you higher level of qualification than a traditional double degree.

You can explore your design interests throughout your undergraduate degree and specialise or expand your experience at a postgraduate level.
