“Architectural education at SP marries university-style building design projects with real-world codes and regulations, ensuring that the wildest student designs are translatable into reality. With rigorous Computer-Aided Design (CAD) skills training, studies into history & theory, and exposure through local & overseas field trips, SP’s graduates are immediately employable, yet possess the intellectual foundations necessary for the pursuit of higher education – this is affirmed by the advanced placement that DArch graduates receive at Architecture degree courses at both local and overseas universities.
The technical grounding received at SP would be perfectly complemented by deeper studies into theory and architectural discourse at university level. My education at SP gave me an invaluable head start into this inspiring and fulfilling profession, and I highly recommend the DArch route to anyone who has a strong passion to make a difference in the most tangible way possible - Architecture and the Built Environment.”
