Course content

In a world where established customs, systems and structures are increasingly unstable there is a need for a different kind of architectural thinking - one that identifies and exploits opportunities, and addresses the challenges of contemporary society.

The M ARCH: Architecture course is uniquely positioned at Central Saint Martins to draw on the dynamic design thinking and making skills from a range of art and design practices, as well as providing you with the second degree in the professional pathway toward registration as an architect – commonly referred to as Part Two.

The course is offered in an extended full-time mode over two calendar years. This means that your learning is timetabled over 80 weeks across two years. You are expected to commit 30 hours per week to your studies, within which your taught input will normally be scheduled over two/three days. The course has been designed in this way to enable you to pursue your studies, whilst also undertaking part-time employment, internships or care responsibilities.

Information for international students

The English language requirement for entry for this course is IELTS Academic 6.5 with a minimum of 5.5 in each of the 4 skills (on one single test).
