MArch Architecture


Course Description

Study this RIBA Part 2 architecture course and develop your ability to produce original, visionary, and aspirational architectural designs. The innovative three year structure allows you to work in practice alongside your studies, while the overseas field trip provides a global understanding of architecture.

This course is a professionally accredited Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and Architects Registration Board (ARB) route to apart 2 qualification in architecture. It is suitable for part 1 graduates with or without practical experience, as it provides the opportunity to work alongside your studies.

The course creatively explores the role of architecture as a socially and environmentally sustainable practice with which to design spaces, buildings and cities for an increasingly uncertain future.

Across a range of design, technical, social and theoretical modules, you explore the potential of a socially and physically sustainable approach to design, architecture and urbanism.

The course provides a platform for you to develop an ambitious and exciting personal agenda within architecture. You are encouraged to produce original, visionary, and aspirational design propositions, which are always rooted in, and emerge from, real existing conditions.
