Course content

The course is made up of eight units taught over two years full-time and three years part-time study. Each unit falls into the area of Design Studio, Research or Professional Studies.

Studio options range from practitioner-led masterclasses, or active research in coastal architectural design, contemporary considerations in conservation/rehabilitation, modern vernacular architecture in provincial towns and rural areas.

You will be supported to tackle real-world issues, while speculating and proposing new futures through bold experimentation and boundless enquiry in project-based learning.

Our tutors come from industry and research and our community is a place where academics, practitioners and students are co-designing new ways of thinking.

Teaching is delivered in a dedicated postgraduate studio space, equipped with computer workstations, model-making facilities, large format printers and 3D printers.

You share the infrastructure of a specialist creative arts university with equipment, expertise and support of disciplines such as Games, Fine Art, Fashion, and Interior Design.

You have access to workshops with capability for plastics, metal, wood, and concrete work.

Backed by industry and professional networks

The course is supported by RIBA East, the Norfolk Association of Architectures (NAA), and benefits from activity already established in the BA (Hons) Architecture course, such as the student society, the external lecture series which boasts of guests such as Kengo Kuma Architects, UN Studio, Studio Granda, Tonkin Liu and Drozdov and Partners, and academics from the US and across the UK.

We have collaborative arrangements with professional practitioners and regional organisations and networks such as the Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust.
