Successful completion of this RIBA validated course provides exemption from Part 2 of the ARB prescribed Examination in Architecture.

As part of the process of becoming a professionally-qualified Architect in the UK, graduates are required to complete a period of supervised ‘practical training', 12 months of which (commonly referred-to as the ‘Year Out') is normally undertaken before commencing full-time academic study at Master's level. This period of practical training constitutes Year 1 of the University of Huddersfield M.Arch course.

Therefore, students who have not previously completed a satisfactory period of practical training should join the course in Year 1. Students who have already completed a satisfactory period of practical training should join the course in Year 2.

Years 2 and Year 3 of the course are design-centred and intended to enable you to explore issues of critical regionalism and tectonic expression in relation to establishing your own theoretical position, through which you will be expected to develop a high degree of sensitivity to the context within which design work is undertaken in geographical, cultural, social and technical terms.

All design projects explore applications of sustainability and encourage a wide and plural outlook appropriate for both developed and developing countries. In this global worldview, understanding of progressive theories of design and the application of advanced construction methods co-exist with concern for the implementation of sustainable technologies, awareness of regional development issues and respect for craft-based building practices.

The rationale and definition of ‘International' both builds upon the studies undertaken as part of the Architecture (International) BA(Hons) degree awarded by the University of Huddersfield and acknowledges the reality of rapidly changing architectural practice in a fast moving, global context. Our course will aim to prepare you for new and emerging forms of practice through the development of your personal learning skills and a deep understanding of the need for flexibility, adaptability, innovation and enterprise in your career.

The aim of this course is to address the needs of those looking for a strong foundation of traditional design knowledge and skills, addressing contemporary issues of architectural design and construction. The course focuses on providing students with the competencies necessary for successful architectural design. It encompasses advanced issues of design problem solving including aesthetics, sustainability, urban design, briefing development, design information management, the use of technology to support design development, and support for clients to ensure the successful delivery of benefits. This course is one of number operated within the Master's suite in the School of Art, Design and Architecture which aims to encourage cross-disciplinary working.

This course provides students with the opportunity to get a well-rounded experience in architecture. Architectural teaching in Huddersfield has a history dating back over 90 years; the town is a fine example of buildings from the traditional to the modern; a number of which can be found in and around the University precinct. Huddersfield's position mid-way between the cities of Leeds and Manchester means it is ideally placed to explore diversity in architecture at a range of scales within a regional and global context.

This aim of this course is to provide students with the essential knowledge and skills required to effectively intervene in the urban design process.

In an age of globalisation, where cities are rapidly transforming, that give rise tourban sprawl andthe re-use of existing infill sites, there is an urgent need to develop expertise in urban design in order toadequately address these fast-changing conditions.

At the same time, there is growing recognition of the challenges facing regional locations, in particular how relationships between urban and rural territories need to become more effectively managed through adequate infrastructure and a clearer vision of measured and sustainable growth that will benefit future generations. Environmental, social and economic changes are imposing significant pressures on the sustainability of urban settlements, with consequential and long-term impacts on the quality of life. Features include:

• The location of the University within the Yorkshire region gives students an opportunity to engage directly with a changing local and regional context, particularly in the areas of post-industrial transformations, creatively led regeneration processes and urban-rural developments.
