Welsh School of Architecture
For two years[when?] it was voted the UK's top School of Architecture in the Times Higher Educational Supplement league table. In 2013 it was ranked second by The Guardian and, in a poll of architects carried out by the Architects' Journal, was ranked equal first with the Architectural Association as the top UK school. Its "intellectual, yet no-nonsense approach" to design embraces all aspects of architecture and is focused around the studio project, based on one-to-one design teaching. Academic staff are supported by visiting professors and tutors from local and leading UK practices.
The WSA condenses its Part II architecture course, which would normally involve 2 years of full time study, into a year spent working in practice with part time study modules, followed by 1 year full time at college.
