If you are in work or have other commitments, and can't afford a full year away, then consider mixed mode.
You study our Principles sections through our interactive web site and e-learning material. You engage in projects quite similar to colleagues on campus for the whole year.
You then study in Edinburgh for a semester, starting in early January and ending in April although you do have the option of staying through until May.You share a studio for the spring semester and also can come on our field trip.
You study for a full year starting towards the end of September. The first semester is an intense series of projects that explore sustainable design at every scale. We have a series of visiting speakers and you're encouraged to immerse yourself in the life of our architecture school.
The second semester sees you join colleagues who have been distance learning to work on a series of design projects putting into practice the theory you've learnt. We also have a short field trip to look at some examples of cutting edge design and enjoy the Scottish Highlands
You have a choice how to study for this degree. You can either study in what's called a 'mixed mode' environment where principles and the dissertation are taught through our e-learning packages. These include comprehensive course material, readings, and the opportunity to interact through email, chat rooms and weblogs. Taken in this way, the time for you to complete your studies is normally two years.
You can study on campus, the course material is similar but supplemented by tutorials and seminars. You can expect to complete your studies in one year.
