£2,400* plus optional £1,400* — Included in this section are course materials, software, digital SLR camera, laptop, model making expenses, printing 3D printing. None of these modes of production are compulsory, and the manner in which items are acquired can result in significant savings, eg the re-use and recycling of available materials in the production of models. There is some requirement to print, but most submissions are digital. All materials, printing (2D, 3D), laser cutting etc. are charged at cost within the institution. The one off acquisition of a camera and laptop for the duration of the course is spread evenly across the three years. It is possible to work on university machines and to hire cameras, thus alleviating the costs incurred on some of these items.
Trips and Placement Costs
£600* plus optional £1,500* — Each BA year has a 5 day optional study trip abroad. An equivalent trip to a city in the UK is designed for those unable to travel for any reason. One might expect the UK trip to attract between £100-200 of expenditure on travel, food and accommodation. The anticipated annual cost of a foreign study trip is in the area of £400-500 inclusive of travel, accommodation and subsistence. The figures shown here highlight the upper end of expenditure on each of these options and should viewed as separate sums and not conflated to a greater total.
£600* Students may wish to acquire good outdoor clothing, boots and other forms of protective equipment. Measuring devices, such as large tapes etc. could also be a useful part of an architecture students toolkit.
