Top Four Universities to Study Architecture in the UK

Steve Buss 11th Oct 2019

It is always really difficult when deciding which university will provide the best education for you. I have found the top 4 universities in the UK for Architecture. This is according to the complete university guide’s Architecture League Table 2020.

 

1: Bath

The University of Bath has featured at the top of the Architecture UK university rankings a number of times. It is very competitive and certainly held in high regard. In a study to evaluate graduate destination and employers in 2017, leavers went on to secure roles with some of the notable firms such AHMM, Grimshaw and Purcell. Very impressive!

https://www.bath.ac.uk/departments/department-of-architecture-civil-engineering/

 

 

2: Cambridge

Their architecture department specializes in urban and contextual design, teaching, and sustainable building design research. It is no secret that The University of Cambridge is extremely well known and the conditions to securing a position are definitely no walk in the park. They are known to have some of the highest rates of employment across Architecture departments an impressive 98% of graduates securing employment/further study 6 months after graduating and even more impressive, a 85% of graduates going directly into employment.

https://www.arct.cam.ac.uk/

 

 

3: Sheffield

They provide undergraduate degrees in Architecture, and Architecture and Landscape. They also offer the chance to opt for the four-year MEng degree in Structural Engineering and Architecture. The University of Sheffield have excellent links with the architecture profession through their industry partnerships and their network of graduates. They often have guest lectures from Architects who lead some of the UK’s top practices. They also host a Summer Exhibition employer’s event; this allows final year students to meet architects who are actively looking to employ graduates.

https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/architecture

 

 

4: UCL

It is no surprise that every year, the world-renowned Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London are listed as one of the top universities in the UK for Architecture. I mean, they are situated amongst some of England’s most well known structures. So it is safe to say, there will be no lack of inspiration! Earlier this year, they launched a new 5 years integrated masters degree and have started to accept application as of this month! This is an accelerated model, compressing the part 1 and 2 route, along with a final year on placement into a 5-year consecutive course.

 

There you have it! The top four universities rated for 2019, if you are looking to have a career within Architecture, you can certainly add these to your lists!
