A 2:1 honours degree, or international equivalent, in architecture. We prefer this to be recognised by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) as successful completion of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part I.
You will need to submit a portfolio and may need to attend an interview.
We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with a lower or non-accredited qualification providing they submit a strong portfolio and evidence of personal development. We prefer you to have successfully completed a year in professional training.
Whilst you can enter our MArch (Part II) programme without previously passing RIBA (Part I), if you wish to practice in the UK you will need to satisfy the requirements of the RIBA by passing the RIBA Part I and Part III exams.
Months of entry
