The London School of Architecture, which holds charity status, is delighted to announce that it will open this October in academic partnership with London Metropolitan University.
The School offers a unique two-year programme through an innovative financial and educational model, which aims to make architectural education more accessible while bringing together industry and academia.
The LSA is working with the Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University to offer the LSA Diploma in Architecture as a validated course. The programme will be delivered by world-renowned practising architects and tutors and is supported by 35 industry partners.
Will Hunter, LSA Founder/Director, comments: “After three years of development, I am excited that the London School of Architecture is now open for applications. It is great
to be working with London Metropolitan on this exciting new venture. With an incredible hit list of London practices teaching there, the Cass has staked out much of the territory that interests the LSA, from urban politics and the agency of the architect to the craft and precision of building beautifully. We look forward to many years of creative overlap as the partnership develops'.
Robert Mull, Dean of the Cass Faculty of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University, comments: “We are very pleased to be able to support the LSA through validation and look forward to a partnership that will benefit students, London and the architectural culture more generally. The LSA's commitment to working with practice perfectly matches our own and it is natural that we should collaborate. Together we can offer students more varied routes into practice and work together to address issues of increasing student debt and fear of debt.”
