Architectural Design / Architectural & Urban History & Theory students

Ollie Palmer project 2013
Architectural Design and Architectural & Urban History & Theory are aimed at designers, historians and theorists of architecture. In practice, there is considerable overlap and engagement between the two programmes, both of which consist of a dynamic group of around 90 innovative doctoral students. 


These programmes have a diverse body of students, half of which are international. Many are funded by their home governments or by UCL, one of the UK research councils, or another funding body such as the Royal Institute of British Architects.
