Liverpool University to open satellite architecture school in London

  • Comment

The University of Liverpool has unveiled plans for a new outpost in London teaching architecture

Due to open in September, the 7,500m² satellite will become the eleventh university in the capital offering architectural courses. The postgraduate college will teach MSc courses in architecture, BIM, architecture and entrepreneurship, and modern architectural heritage.

A Part 2 MArch Architecture course is to be launched in 2014. Liverpool School of Architecture head Andre Brown said Liverpool would be the only Russell Group university in the capital, apart from UCL, to offer Part 2 study.

Other courses to be taught at the 33 Finsbury Square campus are accounting, public health, psychology and English language.

A planning application by Smok has been submitted to Islington Council for permission to convert the 1930s office building from mixed use to an educational institution.

Harriet Harriss, senior lecturer in architecture at Oxford Brookes, said: ‘Liverpool is responding to the value of the London brand in attracting international students and acknowledging London schools have been complacent about their geographical advantage in terms of offering innovative and responsive architectural learning options.’
