Course Summary

The MArch is designed to equip you with the skills you need to succeed in your chosen career. Critical thinking, independent learning, imaginative solutions and the rigorous justification of design decisions are at the heart of our course. The architectural profession is rapidly developing through the influence of new technologies, emerging markets and political and ecological drivers. You will develop the tools to respond flexibly to authentic situations and possibilities, to deal with contingency and complexity. This course is prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) at Part 2 level for the purpose of registration in the UK.

Assessment is by design project portfolio and assignment. The MArch course fulfills the ARB/RIBA Part II requirements for professional accreditation, and will enable you to develop the higher level skills of design and research needed to support self-directed architectural design projects, and to shape your future career. The majority of MArch graduates secure positions in national and international design-led architectural practices. Many of the skills developed through the programme are transferrable, including autonomous learning, critical curiosity, social responsibility and both manual and digital communication skills. The skills acquired through the course have enabled our graduates to diversify into such fields as construction, BIM, visualisation, property development, urban design, set design, project management and housing, as well as to continue into doctoral studies.
