About Kingston School of Art

FADA faculty

Kingston School of Art has its roots in the studio-based approach of Britain's art school system (the original School of Art was founded in the 1890s).

The Part 3 PG Dip Professional Practice in Architecture course takes place in classroom-based seminars, tutorials and lectures; taught between 2pm and 7pm on Wednesdays.

However, a large part of this course is nominally self-study and assignment based. We encourage you to form into Study Groups with fellow classmates to discuss the issues. The work has to be your own, of course, but in this way we hope to build up a collegiate learning experience (but that the assignment is written by you and comprises your acquired knowledge on the subject). Each essay will be around 4000 words and we urge you to use restraint in writing. 

Address: Kingston School of Art, Grange Road, Kingston upon Thames, London, KT1 2QJ
