Applications are considered from candidates with a 2:1 or above (or equivalent) pass in a first architecture degree either validated by the RIBA or similar to a RIBA Part 1 degree in the case of non-RIBA validated EU and Overseas courses. Offers are based on first architecture degree results, experience and a portfolio interview or review.
Practical experience is not required for entry to the MArch, though applicants should note that a minimum of 24 months of logged professional experience are required to undertake a Part III examinations and to register as an architect in the UK, of which 12 months of this 24 months may be completed before the completion of the MArch.
Graduates with non-RIBA/ARB validated first architecture degrees who wish to register in the UK as an architect eventually would have to submit their portfolios to ARB for examination at some stage though this is not a requirement for entry to the MArch.
Months of entry
The Leicester School of Architecture MArch programme develops the emerging architectural specialist and challenges the individual to discover or develop a personal stake in the architectural world. Current issues in architectural thought are studied through deep foundations in historical and philosophical thought, contemporary states of urban inhabitation, challenges to a sustainable ecology, the ramifications of modern technology, legal and economic contexts, and the state of the profession.
Central to the course is a series of advanced design studios that are integrated with studies in Humanities, Technology and Environment, Digital Computation and Fabricated and Professional Studies.
