We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Architecture equip you with an effective knowledge of the principles involved in designing, constructing and maintaining buildings and other structures. They teach theoretical principles, practical techniques and professional principles.
Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree with a strong scientific or mathematical element, such as Planning, Architecture, or Building. Sufficient work experience may be accepted in some cases.
Architecture programmes are highly varied, as the scientific or technical element may vary by degree – for example, some have a more historical or artistic focus, while others provide you with more practical working knowledge for construction.
However, the majority of courses provide you with professional accreditation from bodies such as the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA), which will allow you to work as a professional architect.
Specialisations include Landscape Architecture and Urban studies. As such, your degree may not simply be about providing housing and office spaces, but could explore issues such as wildlife protection and building conservation.
Traditional career routes include roles within planning departments and architectural firms, either as working practitioners, project managers, or client advisors.
