Studying architecture can be an exciting but sometimes daunting prospect. This book is the go-to guide for students throughout their architectural education. It introduces architecture students to all they need to know to get on an architecture course, thrive at school and be prepared for the realities of becoming a practicing architect. Split into three main sections – Part I, Part II and Part III – it offers direction on all the elements that feature through architectural education; from the tutorials, first crit and essay-writing through to design training, form and structure. Covering all bases, it is a comprehensive guide to the student’s passage from university preparation, through school and out into the profession. It will cover RIBA UK architecture schools and those validated overseas, including a short, final chapter on architectural education elsewhere.
