Course summary

Our Master of Architecture (MArch) is centred on studio work that is intended to stretch the boundaries of your design imagination. It is a modular course based on design project work, supported by lectures and seminars that examine the theoretical, practical and material dimensions of architecture.

About this course

This course is designed to help you define the kind of architect you want to be. You can tailor your portfolio towards the practices in which you want to work or areas in which you want to demonstrate your expertise.

Accreditation

This course is Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part II professionally accredited and will give you a sound preparation for a career in the architectural profession.

What you'll learn

Design projects in the first year (Stage 5) are based on a visit to a major European city. Your work focuses on the urban scale and the detail scale with studios exposed to a diversity of design approaches. In the second year (Stage 6), you choose from a range of thematic studios on offer to pursue a self-led design thesis.

Alongside design, you can choose from a range of modules. These include the stimulating 'Tools for Thinking About Architecture' which leads either to a dissertation, a live build project or research work with a member of staff. Alternatively, you can opt to pursue modules from another of our Masters' programmes – Urban Design or Urban Planning – and students who take these modules are also eligible for an accelerated route onto one of these programmes after the MArch.

The whole school 'Conversations with Practice' lecture series introduces new ideas from prominent practitioners and academics.

Your development

Through the course you will:

develop an appreciation of design as a collective cultural endeavour involving the acquisition and exercise of complex knowledge and skills
learn to think and act critically, thinking harder and deeper about architecture, what it can achieve and what you can do with it
define the kind of architect you want to be and tailor your portfolio towards the practices in which you want to work or areas in which you want to demonstrate expertise
develop the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the architectural profession with an independent, research-led attitude towards design.
