Students will develop their critical ability, skills and creativity. Study is based in a design studio-led research environment and students will be able to create architectural designs that meet necessary technical requirements while still having aesthetic appeal.

A unique collaborative 'Teaching Practice' programme means each cross-level studio unit is aligned with a leading professional practice in the region where students can visit on selected days for supporting tutorials.

This course is divided into three trimesters to allow students to work towards a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or a Master's qualification.

PgDip: Architectural Synergies; Management Practice and Law: Theory.

Master's Project: Architectural Speculations Part 1; Architectural Speculations Part 2; Architectural Speculations: Tectonics; Management Practice and Law: Applied; Dissertation or Special Study.


Students will be assessed through a mix of reviews, reports, exams and essays. Students will undertake a major dissertation or special study (to follow on from the Co.Lab live project or another opportunity) on a theme related to the course. The dissertation and special study themes are negotiated with the course tutor.
