University of East London Architecture

Architecture and Design combines art, science and technology to create artefacts, buildings and places with the power to transform our living environment. Our award-winning department needs bright, innovative people to develop the future spaces where we will live, work and play.

University of East London Architecture

UEL has an international reputation in architecture, reflected in a string of awards and honours. For example, two of our lecturers are part of an east London-based architecture collective that won the UK’s most prestigious visual arts award – the 2015 Turner Prize.

Our students helped with their preliminary research, looking at imaginative ways of renovating run-down Victorian terraces in Liverpool and transforming the local living environment.

In 2014, one of our students won the international SOM/Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) undergraduate prize for the best project. Another is the only student representative on the RIBA Council, while another won the American Institute of Architects (AIA) travel scholarship

Our students also achieve professional success. In 2013, three of our students were on the project team that won the RIBA Stirling Prize – Britain’s biggest architecture accolade.

And our students engage with events nationally and internationally.  In 2014, they exhibited as part of the Venice Biennale and the London Festival of Architecture

Our courses will set you on the path to becoming an architect, landscape architect and designer, and you can gain exemption from parts 1 and 2 of the ARB/RIBA professional examinations and the Landscape Institute where applicable.

You’ll learn in small classes from practising architects and designers in workshops and studios, and you’ll use professional quality equipment. And you’ll gain lots of hands-on experience working on real-life projects.
