MArch Architecture is for students who have completed BA Architecture and, typically, spent a year in practice.
The course comprises studio (with integrated technology), a dissertation and professional studies, and is ideal if you're interested in exploring a range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism, and looking to pursue a career in roles associated with the development of sustainable urban spaces.
The studio element of the course is delivered through research-driven clusters called ateliers that align strong areas of research activity and mutual interests via trios of staff. This will enable you to develop ideological positions that are critically underpinned by seminars, workshops and symposiums.
The course has continued to maintain a diverse range of ateliers and expertise, which enables us to provide a series of distinct and significant areas of focus with respect to the future of architecture and urbanism in a wider cultural context. At the beginning of each academic year, you will choose from a range of ateliers. You would normally expect to spend a year studying with a particular atelier.
The course is an innovative collaboration between The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University.
You will benefit from the expertise of specialist practice and research-active lecturers, who provide a rich and stimulating environment in which to study architecture.
What's more, you'll be inspired by the world-famous city of Manchester - the industrial revolution birthplace turned 21st century metropolis - and its vibrant, contemporary and innovative architecture scene.
Manchester is a showcase for recent regeneration and historic context, much of which has been designed with the involvement of our current students and graduates.
The city recognises the value of high-quality design, together with innovative and pragmatic approaches to resolving practical issues.
