Why you should choose this course:
-You are interested in exploring a range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism
-You want a course that crosses disciplines and is accredited by leading institutions in architecture teaching and research
-You are looking to pursue a career in roles associated with the development of sustainable urban spaces

This course is for students who have completed the BA (Hons) Architecture course and, typically, a year in practice. The course comprises studio (with integrated technology), dissertation and professional studies. The studio course is delivered through research-driven clusters called ateliers that align strong areas of research activity and mutual interests via trios of staff. This enables students to develop ideological positions that are critically underpinned through seminars, workshops and symposiums to enhance their knowledge and skills. The first year of their studies enables each student to locate themselves within a broad range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism. The second year builds upon this knowledge and developing skillset to orientate each student towards a suitable role in the parameters of the profession. The MArch programme has continued to maintain a diverse range of ateliers and expertise and 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 make a preference from a choice of the School's ateliers. You would normally expect to spend a year studying with a particular atelier.

This course is jointly accredited by the University of Manchester (UoM) and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) with cross-disciplinary connections between the School of Environment, Education and Development (UoM), the Manchester School of Architecture (MMU) and Manchester Institute for Research and Innovation in Art and Design (MMU).

Alternatively, if you have successfully achieved all of the ACCA Fundamental level papers you are eligible to apply.

The programme covers a number of core themes including International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), corporate reporting, corporate governance and risk management.

In addition, you will develop knowledge in implementing strategy in the context of both the external environment and internal business capabilities, and be able to evaluate performance implications of a given strategy.

Once you have passed, you will be awarded the CIMA Advanced Diploma in Management Accounting and be granted exemptions from all certificate, operational and management level exams in the CIMA Professional Qualification. Then by sitting three strategic level papers and TOPCIMA (and relevant work experience) it will lead to students becoming CIMA qualified accountants.
