Providing high-quality education
How you will learn
We are committed to providing a high-quality learning environment.
Below you can see the ways we offer this at The University of Manchester.
Lectures are usually delivered to your whole cohort in person, on campus, and complemented by smaller group activities in our workshops and design studios.
Our teaching design studio is an important creative space where you will spend a lot of time being supported to develop your ideas.
Currently, staff and students are working safely in our studios, with all interaction through computers and relayed via a large screen.
Model making is a key part of the architectural teaching process.
We have a full schedule of extra-curricular activities to inspire you and enhance your learning.
These include talks, seminars, conferences, and provocations, which are currently running online.
