This course combinines British architectural history with practical tuition in interpreting building fabric. Students are taken from a wide variety of backgrounds. The emphasis is on learning to research, record and assess historic buildings. By the end of the 1st year students are expected to be able to date buildings from their details and unravel their evolution. They are also given instruction on how to investigate and survey historic structures. The 2nd year is divided between professional experience and a personal research project which constitutes the thesis.
