Entry requirements

This course is usually intended for graduates of architecture courses where students hold a university degree and part 1 professional qualification recognised by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA). Applicants to the course should have a first degree in architecture (2:2 or better); however, the University recognises that individuals may develop additional skills outside university, and will interview such applicants who have developed a high quality portfolio of relevant academic and practice work.

Course content

The MArch Master of Architecture is a two year full-time or three year part-time programme leading to the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) part 2 professional award. The course emphasises design as a central activity underpinned by research, with complementary lecture based studies in History and Theory, Technology, Arts and Media, and Professional Management.

The programme encourages debate and enquiry about contemporary culture, the postmodern city, and relationships between urban and landscape conditions through diverse and considered responses to the architectural design project, and critical research expressed in extended, structured writing.

You'll build on analytical design skills and professional competences established at undergraduate level, with a focus on innovation in design, construction, and resource efficient technology. Working in vertical design studios, students will develop an understanding of, and methods relevant to contemporary professional practice, together with an ability to produce complex and diverse design proposals.

The course introduces critical intellectual frameworks and engages with the conceptual, constructional, and environmental context in which the entire architectural design process operates. it's why we're recognised by the Complete University Guide 2019 as the number one London modern university for research intensity in Architecture.

The course satisfies the criteria held jointly by the RIBA and ARB for part 2 courses in architecture.
