Alongside design, you can choose from a range of modules. These include the stimulating 'Tools for Thinking About Architecture' which leads either to a dissertation, a live build project or research work with a member of staff. Alternatively, you can opt to pursue modules from another of our Masters' programmes – Urban Design, Town Planning, or Design and Emergence – and students who take these modules are also eligible for an accelerated route onto one of these programmes after the MArch.

The whole school 'Conversations with Practice' lecture series introduces new ideas from prominent practitioners and academics.

Through the programme you will:
-Develop an appreciation of design as a collective cultural endeavour involving the acquisition and exercise of complex knowledge and skills
-Learn to think and act critically, thinking harder and deeper about architecture, what it can achieve and what you can do with it
-Define the kind of architect you want to be and tailor your portfolio towards the practices in which you want to work or areas in which you want to demonstrate expertise
-Develop the knowledge and skills necessary to work in the architectural profession with an independent, research-led attitude towards design

Our Erasmus and international exchange programmes provide opportunities to study abroad for one or two semesters in Stage 5. Exchange partners include The University of Sydney and KTH Stockholm.

This course allows you to develop a broader critical understanding of the urban built environment. It is highly flexible, allowing you to choose from a wide variety of modules to suit your skills and interests.

The course combines taught and research elements, and offers a particularly wide range of choices for specialisation, drawing on the wide variety of postgraduate modules available within the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape.

There are only two compulsory modules on the course, giving you the flexibility to choose from a wide range of modules to suit your needs and interests. The opportunity to take modules with a very broad international theme makes this course extremely attractive to international students, offering the chance to express your learning in relation to your own country.

The course focuses on the more theoretical elements of planning and architecture but also offers some opportunity to undertake a small amount of design studio work.

This MA provides a grounding for students considering a PhD in architecture, planning or landscape, or those who wish to add a range of planning skills to an existing professional qualification in another discipline. It is relevant for anyone wishing to work in urban redevelopment or regeneration. It enhances the understanding and skills of those who are currently professional Urban Designers, Planners or Architects.

Delivery

The learning environment is informal and friendly and the approach to teaching offers a mix of theoretical and practical modules. We place strong emphasis on team and individual project work, allowing you to put your learning into practice. An optional field trip to a country in Europe or Asia provides valuable practical project experience. The field trip is not included in the cost of the course (field trip costs are between £500 - 1000 for up to 2 weeks).
