Course summary

Continue your journey to professional architecture status with the University of Salford. Designed for students with a passion for design, an appetite for ideas, and a desire to experiment, our Part 2 MArch Architecture degree offers you an engaging learning experience in an unrivalled destination.

From our location at the heart of the world’s first industrial city, the focus of our MArch philosophy is the ‘post-industrial city’. Based in our studio setting, you will explore the architectural relationship between ecological and human systems. You’ll critically examine histories and theories in generating cultural values related to making places.

Delivered across two years, including an international summer school, the MArch course blends theory and practice to build your capabilities to be a responsible designer, reflective practitioner, and creative innovator. The course is enriched with technical skills, knowledge exchanges, and practice-based action learning, that refine your critique and develop your confidence.

The MArch at Salford is prescribed at Part 2 Level by the UK Regulator of Architects, the Architects’ Registration Board (ARB) until 30 May 2024. If you successfully complete the MArch and hold a recognised undergraduate Part 1 qualification, you can progress to complete the final UK qualification examination as an architect - the Part 3 Diploma - and will then be eligible to register as an architect and to join the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

You will:

  • Enhance your knowledge of architecture design thinking to explore the relationships between ecological and human systems
  • Experience an immersive and dynamic studio-based learning environment, complete with 3-D printers, laser cutters, portable workspace and digital tools and technologies to articulate an architectural position
  • Develop critical understanding of the professionalism, duties and personal responsibilities of architects to clients, building users, constructors, co-professionals and the wider society

TEACHING

Learning takes place in our purpose-built design studios. These carefully designed spaces house the specialist equipment and tools you'll need to inspire your creativity and execute your ideas.

Personal development is encouraged through structured workshops and other activities, with the research skills you develop enabling you to be self-directed.

Work-based learning/industry experience – in which you will act as 'consultant-researcher-designers' – will complement specific modules where you will assess a theoretical concept with its practical implementation.

WHAT ABOUT AFTER UNI?

With a Part 2 qualification, you are well on your way to becoming a chartered architect. Architecture is a highly-valued profession throughout the world. As a qualified architect, you will work throughout the built environment profession on a diverse range of projects and developments.

As a Part 2 architecture graduate, you are likely to find employment opportunities with architectural practices, design practices, and engineering consultancy firms. There may also be opportunities with central government, local authorities, property developers, building contractors, housing associations, financial institutions, major retailers and manufacturing companies.
