This ARB/RIBA Part 2-accredited course has been retitled from the previously named Graduate Diploma in Architecture to MArch in Architecture. Read more
This ARB/RIBA Part 2-accredited course has been retitled from the previously named Graduate Diploma in Architecture to MArch in Architecture. The course operates within the guidelines stipulated by professional accreditation, but has its own unique character. Being taught in an art-and-design-based faculty means that design is at the heart of our approach.

Key features
-You will gain a comprehensive knowledge of the areas of study required to enter and contribute to architectural practice and architectural discourse.
-You will acquire a critical understanding of architecture as a cultural, social and material practice, with consideration for the ways in which it impacts on human and physical environments.
-You will learn to create coherent, responsible and appropriate architectural designs capable of making a positive contribution to the environment.

What will you study?

During this course, you will develop as architectural designers and thinkers and move towards the ability to engage in architectural practice as independent and reflective practitioners. You will build on and further develop the knowledge, understanding and skill acquired during your first degree and a recommended initial period of work-based learning. The emphasis of this course is therefore to deepen and consolidate existing learning and skill, rather than to introduce a wide range of new subject material.

Assessment

Design projects, reports, seminars, presentations, essays, case studies, and dissertation.

Course structure

Please note that all modules listed below are compulsory for that level.
Core modules (Level 6)
