Entry requirements

The course is intended for students who have completed their professional role-orientated education and wish to undertake speculative design-based research.

Thus it is expected that applicants from the field of architecture will already possess an accredited graduate diploma or postgraduate degree in architecture (UK), a professional master's in architecture (US), or the international equivalent.

Admission to the course will normally be open to applicants who fulfil one of the following:

  • hold a good undergraduate honours degree, min 2.2 (or international equivalent), in Architecture or a discipline relevant to Architecture
  • have an appropriate professional background and experience of designing architecture, or an alternative design discipline with strong similarities

The course also welcomes applicants from other design fields: e.g Product Design, Fine Art, Graphic Design and Interior Design. Such applicants should possess strong undergraduate degree achievement.

Course content

Learn to develop your own design methods with our Master of Architecture (MArch).

Our approach to teaching is based on a set of values which redefine the function of architecture in terms of the human relationships that underlie society. And how people really live, relate to each other and use the physical context of their environment.

You will develop basic skills which relate to the expanded world of architecture. In particular photography, film-making and devising narratives.

You will build on your imagination, individuality, and inspiration. And develop an experiential understanding of the world.

In looking for new approaches to problems you will gain qualities such as:

  • independence
  • originality
  • verbal fluency
  • breadth of interest
  • impulsiveness
  • expansiveness.

Our students are regularly recognised in national and international prizes and awards. They go on to work for many of the best-known practices in the country.
