  • Undergraduate

    Our undergraduate programmes include an RIBA part 1 BA (hons) Architecture, ARB and LAM accredited course and a BA (hons) Interior Architecture course. Both of our undergraduate courses have a affiliated association with the ACSA. Based in the historical and architecturally diverse city of Oxford, our BA courses will give you the opportunity to challenge, explore and develop not only you as individual but also your portfolio. Our students are involved in many different live projects from our OB1 live to designing an Innovation Hub at John Radcliffe hospital.

    Annually, we host the End of Year Show in May, this is an opportunity for you to see the work that our students have created throughout the year. So do take this opportunity to come and visit us. We look forward to seeing and welcoming you to the School very soon.

    Interior Architecture

    BA (Hons)

    The study of interior architecture provides a direct route into professional practice. Many graduates from this programme work within high-level architectural practices, contributing to the production and understanding of well designed spaces for human occupation.

  • Community and career

    Our Architecture graduates go onto work for leading practices across the globe such as Norman Foster and Hawkins Brown Architects. The strength of the our Interior course means our graduates work in a variety of different practices working on community based projects, lighting and even set design for TV.

  • Brookes Architecture emphasises a lot on individuality and creativity, on top of technicality, which I thought was very encouraging. Being in Oxford, a smaller student-filled city was certainly a plus point for me. The best aspects of studying at Brookes were field trips. I love that every year, we get a major field trip, and several local trips. There’s a wide range of design units to choose from, each focusing on different aspects and having unique briefs.

    Nadhira Abdul Halim – BA Architecture

    We were really challenged by our tutor to think for ourselves in totally new ways. I also like the fact that it's a very practical course. We have been involved in hands on project work every semester. For instance, we have just worked on an extension to a nursery school near Oxford, which included a sensory room and a clubhouse. The course has given us a really good basis in technology, too, and we have used all the main computer programmes.
