Studying architecture is key to understanding the relationship between people and the natural world, and learning how to improve the environment and design the buildings of the future. Our pathway combines creative, analytical and personal skills with the cultural, environmental and technical framework needed for architecture.

This will make you an attractive candidate for a wide range of employment opportunities within the fashion sector.
