Course summary

Why study this course?

This postgraduate course combines an apprenticeship with study over a four-year period. Funded by their employer, participants complete RIBA parts 2 and 3 whilst working as architectural apprentices.

More about this course

Our Architecture Apprenticeship is fully integrated with our long-established and highly-regarded RIBA 2 and RIBA 3 courses. Successful completion of the apprenticeship will lead to the award of a Master of Architecture (MArch).

Our students have had considerable success in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Awards, winning the RIBA Silver Medal in 2002, 2003 and 2012, together with numerous commendations and other awards.

Architecture at London Met is taught in Aldgate, in east London's creative heart. Students will benefit from access to all our art and design facilities, which cater to textiles, ceramics, furniture-making, printing, high-end digital reproduction and film-making, as well as photography equipment, workshops and specialised technicians.

The course will include the development of designs and design strategies with regards to wider urban and landscape concerns in central London and beyond. These designs will address the integration of social, cultural and economic as well as environmental and sustainable concerns, preparing apprentices for their futures as architects working in the profession and other parts of the construction industry, both locally and internationally. Apprentices will learn to work collaboratively and collectively and be able to critically analyse a given situation in order to contribute to appropriate solutions.

Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to start or enhance a career - they allow the apprentice to be employed full time, being paid, whilst learning and gaining a qualification in their chosen occupational area. If you're an employer, apprenticeships can also help enhance your business by utilising your levy to recruit an apprentice who can have a positive impact on your organisation.


Design projects will be assessed via a portfolio and a presentation at the end of the course. The history, theory and practice coursework is assessed through seminar papers and an essay. The technology studies are examined in portfolio and through a dissertation, coursework and professional reports.
