Architectural Association School of Architecture, located at Bedford Square in London, offers undergraduate to doctoral programmes in architecture. Some of their hallmark graduate programmes include building conservation, sustainable environmental design, landscape urbanism, and housing and urbanism.
The building conservation programme is aimed at the conservation of historical buildings. The newly launched post-professional Master of Science and Master of Architecture in Sustainable Environmental Design programs are designed to train and develop skills to meet the demands of the changing urban environment. Another 16-month programme called Design Laboratory is a studio-based course that enhances the skills and knowledge of urban space and alternative architectural forms. The histories and theories programme enables students to learn contemporary architecture. The tousing and urbanism programme helps to update issues related to urban design.

It also covers theoretical and historical research on different aspects of architecture. Part 3 is an examination in architecture, which allows the qualified students to register and work as architects in the U.K.
