This course blends practice-based experience with academic research and learning.
It is a two-year, full-time masters. You'll undertake two semesters of practice-based education in the initial year and two semesters of University-based education in the second year.
The course offers you a unique opportunity to develop your experience working with some of the UK’s top architectural practices.
In the first year, a combination of practice-based seminars, tutorials, peer-to-peer learning and lectures develop the intellectual requirements of a University education within a professional context. The programme builds upon and runs alongside our MArch in Architecture course, with students studying together in the second year.
We are one of the UK's top architecture schools. Our teaching staff are doing world-class research, helping to make the school a leader in our field across the UK and internationally. Through our teaching and research, we explore the social, spatial and environmental implications of architecture. As a Sheffield student you will engage with real issues affecting the built environment.
Our design teaching is studio based with several research-led options. Programmes run by specialist staff link together lectures, studio work and research.
Each module is assessed individually by coursework.
