Why Coventry University?
An award-winning university, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible experience. We continue to invest in both our facilities and our innovative approach to education. Our students benefit from industry-relevant teaching, and resources and support designed to help them succeed. These range from our modern library and computing facilities to dedicated careers advice and our impressive Students’ Union activities.
Architecture at Coventry University is taught as a liberal discipline that is technically, professionally, socially, and environmentally sustainable, placing an emphasis on architecture as a social practice and a technical process which deliberately spans both science and the arts.
We strive to provide an architectural education that is as complex as the field of architecture itself, but which nonetheless has clarity of intent and purpose and is stimulating and accessible. Our teaching reflects the nature of contemporary architecture as an international field of creative inquiry and the course incorporates exploration, collaboration and the critical analysis of a range of inputs from differing sources, to provide the knowledge, skills and confidence necessary for the role of the architect in a modern multidisciplinary building design process.
This is a modular course based primarily on design project work, supported by lectures and seminars that explore the cultural, technical and professional dimensions of architecture.
This course is primarily designed to prepare you for a career in architecture.
Graduates may also choose to pursue careers in a wide range of related professions or to pursue further academic studies at PhD level.
Although work placements as such are not undertaken by the course, the nature of the course ensures strong links to industry with industry led design briefs and the input by visiting tutors from industry.
We can make offers to candidates – usually from outside the UK – without RIBA/ARB Part 1 exemption from a previous degree.
Applicants will be asked to provide a convincing portfolio of relevant architectural design work. This will either be presented at interview or submitted by post/online.
English as a Foreign Language: This course requires IELTS 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5. Pre-sessional English is available if required.
