The Bachelor of Science (Architectural Studies) is the first part of the Architect’s training. The three years delivered in this programme precedes the final two years available in the Bachelor of Architecture. Professionally, architectural training requires a minimum of seven years and consists of three parts. The first two parts, comprising of 5 years of study is completed in an academic institutions. It consists of a three year Bachelor of Science degree (for Part I) followed by a two year study that confers a Bachelor of Architecture degree that is recognised professionally as Part II. Between the two parts, the University requires student to undertake a period of practical training ranging from 6 months to one year. The two parts, though conferring two different Bachelors degree, at the end of the third and fifth study year maybe one continuous process.
