About Architecture

The role of an Architect is to design different types of building and constructions as well as conserving and restoring those that are already there. Architects can make a real difference in society by designing uplifting buildings which look pleasing to the eye.

Architects will use their creative skills to create something which is attractive but also complements its surrounding whilst making sure that it is practical and fit for purpose.

Becoming an Architect could be your opportunity to leave a lasting impression on society, take at look at some of our most iconic buildings such as The Houses of Parliament, Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, The Tate Modern and The Shard, they have all been designed by Architects.

To become an Architect you will need a broad range of skills including the ability to visualise three dimensionally, creativity and a strong interest in buildings and construction with a keen sense of how construction technologies work.

Training to become an Architect takes many years of study and work experience but once qualified you can rise through the ranks and earn a high salary.
