"

The most beneficial thing I found with this program was that it showed me that I should not be afraid to ask questions and should not be afraid to admit that I do not know something. Often, I would ask my extremely well-trained tutor a very simple question, expecting for a negative reaction. To my surprise, I never received a negative reaction, but positive reactions instead! Asking clarifying questions indeed is an underrated attribute to have.

Sample Architecture Modules

To see how the Online Insights programme is structured, please view the timetable.
  • Module 1 - Introduction To Architecture

    An exploration of what the study of architecture entails at university-level and a description of current practice. You will also embark on a virtual tour of the world's most interesting designs to learn about the various architectural styles.
  • Module 2 - Architectural Styles Through Time

    This session traces the evolution of architectural theory through an examination of the architectures between the 16th and 19th centuries, including Palladian architecture and the Gothic Revival.
  • Module 3 - Foundations of Architecture

    The foundations of architecture are examined through some of its early historical examples. The elevation is perhaps the most familiar and accessible form of architectural depiction, and this will be examined in reference to the variety of architectural styles found in Oxford and Cambridge.
  • Module 4 - Architectural Design Project

    Your tutor will provide a brief in which you have to design your own architectural structure by following guidelines. At the end of the course, all students will present their work.
