Course summary

Introduction

This Master of Architecture, RIBA part II, ranks among the top 20 in the UK. You'll take part in live projects with genuine client briefs, in well equipped studios and workshops, and choose from three specialisms in your second year to develop an individually distinctive portfolio.

UWE Bristol has an excellent reputation for its architecture courses, and the calibre of its graduates. We have been ranked sixth nationally for student satisfaction for our Architecture courses in The Guardian University League Tables 2020.

If you have Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) or Architects Registration Board (ARB) Part I accreditation, this course is an excellent opportunity to achieve your Master of Architecture, plus RIBA and ARB Part II accreditation. Part III accreditation is also achievable here.

Hone in on your career aspirations

You can specialise in one of three or more areas, such as Social Architecture, Conservation or Urbanism, in your second year, to help differentiate your skills and develop a unique portfolio.

You will have attentive support from an excellent department with extensive research expertise and complementary knowledge, and learn from industry-experienced tutors and practising professionals.

Learning incorporates working on live briefs from genuine clients, and studying cities and buildings on national and international field trips. It will encourage and develop your design skills, and introduce you to working directly with clients and end users, and running an architecture practice.

This course also offers further real-world experience with excellent connections to industry and local communities and puts on a high-profile end-of-year show in Bristol, attended by local, regional and national practices.
