Course summary

Overview

Our Architectural Design MA is a pre-professional programme to help you develop a specialist approach to architectural thinking and design execution. This is an internationally popular course that attracts students from across the world and currently offers entry to the rigorous design teaching and enquiry-based learning that we offer at the Leicester School of Architecture (LSA). You will join a community of academics, practitioners and students that is co-designing new ways of thinking and you will be supported to tackle current real-world challenges while proposing new futures.

We provide state-of-the-art facilities for you to realise your ambitions, with workshops offer cutting-edge digital fabrication facilities, alongside a wide range of craft workshops, where you can innovate with materials and processes.

You will benefit from the LSA’s extensive national and international lecture series, attracting leading academics and professionals from around the world. Working both collaboratively and individually, you will undertake design projects in various contexts, while gaining skills in visualisation and fabrication. As a graduate you will be empowered to take a personal and critical position in the globalised architectural world, with the expertise to pursue careers in allied industries including planning, architectural conservation, urban design, facilities, estate and project management.

Teaching and assessments

This provides the foundation for the thesis project module in term three. At this stage you will have established an individual academic agenda, translated into a design or propositional piece of work through the Design Lab modules.

Assessment is completed at the end of each design module in the form of a portfolio submission. Interim assessment and feedback is provided throughout the year in the form of tutorials, seminars, formal presentations or project reviews.

Graduate careers

This programme is designed to equip you with both professional and research skills that will enable you to address the future challenges of sustainable architecture and development. Many of our graduates pursue careers in allied industries, such as planning, architectural conservation, urban design, facilities, estate and project management, where these skills are in high demand. Graduates also work in fields such as heritage and history studies, event design, digital animation and strategic management. The focus on theoretical architectural debate and developing sophisticated research skills will be excellent preparation to progress onto a PhD.
