The Bachelor of Architectural Studies at Otago Polytechnic was recently approved by NZQA for 2017.
Otago Polytechnic’s three-year degree offers two specialisations: Architectural Technologies and Interior Architecture. On completion, students can then go on to study their Master of Architecture (Professional).
Tobias Danielmeier is the programme manager of the Bachelor of Architectural Studies. He says that the programme has quickly filled up twice, with others already signalling their intent to start next year.
“A new generation of architects will now learn in the birthplace of New Zealand architecture. It has been a long time coming to have architectural education in the south, and Otago Polytechnic’s delighted to offer it for 2017,” he says.
