Year in


Raymond Quek,
Course Leader

This has been an exceptional graduating cohort, focusing their architectural visions on the vibrant territory of El Poblenou in Barcelona, Spain - exploring how interventions can instigate points of urban growth and considering wider issues such as social and economic uplift and environmental response.

Students have
been talent-spotted

This year our students showcased their work on DEZEEN, a high-profile web magazine for architecture and interior design.
Many of the 2022 cohort have already been talent spotted, and have been offered employment with architectural practices in London, Cambridge, Essex and Norfolk.

Course sponsorship

Our students were sponsored by Polysolar, manufacturers of high-tech photovoltaic glazing to look into new ways of using this technology in the built environment.
Final year students were also sponsored to work on new proposals for an outdoor church hall for St Mary the Virgin at Kelling, Holt.

The intimate learning environment has made my time at NUA the most enjoyable, with unprecedented contact time with dedicated and invested technicians, lecturers and our course leader.
