Course summary

Overview

The Master of Architecture (MArch) programme is a professional/undergraduate Masters qualification available to students with an appropriate first degree in Architecture and RIBA Part I. It leads to the RIBA Part II award.

This degree is validated by the RIBA and prescribed by ARB as a Part 2 qualification towards access to the Architectural Profession in Europe.

Year 1 focuses on design through lectures, seminars and carefully planned individual and group work. Taught modules outside studio design cover professional practice and contemporary approaches to technology.

You'll then begin the second year with a design project that's set, reviewed, and taught by a notable practitioner or design practice. In 2018-19 this was Ian Ritchie Architects.

The programme builds towards the Design Thesis, where you’ll produce a major piece of work in response to your own brief. The dissertation subject will reflect your personal interests.

You'll be taught by our full time staff and by selected practitioners and Honorary Professors. These included Ian Ritchie and Patrick Lynch (Lynch Architects) in 2018/19. We’ve a very generous offering of prizes for students performing strongly in areas of our MArch degree.

Students may take Semester 1 of Year 2 abroad at one of our approved exchange Schools of Architecture in China, Australia or Europe.

You'll be examined and assessed by studio presentations and coursework submissions.

Career prospects

Students who successfully complete a Higher Degree go on to interesting and rewarding careers in architecture, the wider construction industry, management, higher education, the arts and conservation and many other specialisms to be found in the arts, architecture and the built environment.
