Creative Oasis

The Creative Oasis is a university of Creative Therapies and Arts which explores the contemporary notion of well-being and promotes a strong connection between people and the natural environment. Through its curriculum and building design, students are encouraged to develop their creativity and interests in a calm and peaceful setting that incorporates biophilic design principles. The school has adopted a practical approach by collaborating with other institutions in the city and engaging the community through social engaged art and exhibitions.

With a public library and café accessible to all, the building serves as a new gathering spot for people in the neighbourhood. The therapeutic centre, located close to the main building, provides individuals in the surrounding area with the resources they need to improve their mental health and well-being

BArch Architecture

The BArch (Hons) in Architecture course is focused on the creative and practical development of architectural design, investigated in a studio environment through a series of carefully considered practical and theoretical projects in a variety of spatial, social, cultural and topographical situations.

The purpose of the course is to align architectural concepts, thinking, techniques and values with current architectural thought and practice. It involves strategic thinking and creative imagination; problem-solving and research tasks; attention to detail and tectonic resolution; traditional and digital forms of representation; and public presentations and reviews. This course addresses the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures and develops Part 1 graduates with creative vision, practical skills and an ethical position in respect of the role of the architect in a globalised world.
