The Masters in Architectural and Urban Design (formerly Urban Studies) at University of Brighton brings critical debate together with creative practice, helping to develop you as one of those designers who will plan the urban environments of the future. You will engage with critical thinking and research based on the analysis of cities and will develop your own projects, speculating as to how cities will evolve and be used in the future.

If you are looking to change or develop your career, or wish to extend your knowledge in both architecture and design, the MA Architectural and Urban Design gives you a deep understanding of the issues involved in contemporary practice and allows you to evolve your own specialist work. Our former students have gone on to be professional architects, academics and urban designers.

You will benefit from a supportive studio environment, two field trips and a variety of workshops and seminars. Your lecturers are expert practitioners in architecture and urban design as well as experienced teachers.

Work is of a highly experimental nature that stretches your imagination and critical ability. You will produce innovative portfolios, critical writing and develop awareness of issues in global urban environments, expanding your knowledge beyond the usual architectural boundaries.

The Sustainable Design MA is a solution-focused course, for a post-awareness-raising era of change, redirection and activism through design. It engenders within students a confidence, aptitude and dynamism with which to situate their practice at the very forefront of the sustainable design debate. Students come from a broad range of creative contexts, including product design, furniture and lighting, interior and architectural practice, fashion and textiles, media and journalism, conservation and planning, for example. The Sustainable Design MA embraces current practices, whilst stepping forward to pioneer new and provocative means through which sustainability may be more fully achieved.

We aim to develop a research-led education, where practices of rigorous inquiry permeate every part of what we do.

Introduction

The Master of Architecture (M.Arch) RIBA Part II Course is a highly creative, research-led professional two year masters course rooted in Studio Laboratories driven by individual enquiry. The M.Arch course is prescribed by the ARB and validated by the RIBA, giving exemption from RIBA Part II.

We are based in the heart of the vibrant Faculty of Arts. Founded in 1859 as the School of Art, it offers an inspirational creative context for nurturing excellence in our work. Our distinct research-led approach filters through all aspects of the course, with rigorous inquiry fusing innovation, regulation and social commentary. This student focussed approach offers the opportunity for you to investigate your personal architectural agenda, developing your own critical position and design language prior to entry into the profession.

The Studio Laboratories are driven by tutors’ personal research agendas and all are actively engaged within this field of enquiry as academics or practitioners. The stimulating mix of practitioners and academics across the course builds conversations, with visiting lecturers and critics further feeding the dialogue. Recent visiting lecturers have included Neil Denari, Perry Kulper, Chris Thurlbourne, Michael Jemtrud, and our close links with practice ensure stimulating review panels. We place critical thought at our core and look forward to you joining the conversation.


Professional accreditation
Successful completion of the MArch carries ARB/RIBA Part 2 exemption. In addition, the University of Brighton offers the Management Law and Practice in Architecture postgraduate diploma (Part 3) as the final stage towards the professional title of architect.
As Part 1 exemption is not a prerequisite for Part 2, we are able to accept applications for the MArch programme from students who have a degree in architecture, or a closely related subject, but who do not have a Part 1 qualification. Students in this position are expected to take the Part 1 examination independently. All applicants ultimately seeking to register with the ARB are still required to have satisfied all Parts 1, 2, and 3.

Course structure
The first year in the MArch comprises the main taught input for technology, via precedent studies, lectures, case studies and seminars, and an in-depth research-based history and theory course. The main design project is undertaken in terms 2 and 3, building on research-based design work in term 1, where technology supports design ambitions to satisfy Part 2 criteria. In the second year students are increasingly expected to lead the studio culture with advanced research initiatives and design agendas. Part 2 criteria related to design, professional studies, technology and history and theory are all covered in this year.

Areas of study
Students work on a common, issue-based brief in different tutor groups for the entire academic year. Technology, professional studies and history and theory courses are delivered through lectures, seminars and workshops from academics, practitioners and specialists that support the development of design projects.
