Studying Architecture and Interiors at Brighton is full of surprises and so is the city. You think that you are coming to study in a small southeast town on the coast and suddenly you discover that the city and the school environment start to challenge your view of design in an unpredictable way.
Our teaching is based on expanding your creativity, experimentation and our desire to prepare you to be a designer of the future. The school is buzzing with research, experiment and learning at all levels and in many different ways. You'll work together with fellow students in a shared, active studio space. Architecture and design professionals work with you to connect with the realities of your architectural career. You'll enjoy hands-on learning, and projects beyond the university, as well as open-lectures from visiting international architects and designers.
Courses at Brighton are design-led. We believe in working and learning through engagement with all aspects of making and drawing - the core design tools - supplemented with a range of creative provocations to tease out your potential.
As a student at Brighton you'll be at the centre of life in Architecture and Interiors. You'll take part in staging your own series of events through the BIAAS student society, inviting your choice of inspirational speakers from the world of design and creative practice.
By taking one of our degrees across Architecture and Interiors, you will be contributing to and profiting from a vibrant and creative community.
