Architecture MSc

Course Description

The MSc Architecture is aimed at graduates from a number of disciplines who are interested in pursuing a nonprofessional degree in architecture or an area closely related to architecture.

With a number of core modules that introduce you to detailed aspects of architecture led-research, you can take either a studio design based route drawing on both the rich heritage of the city of London and on the wider UK context, or a purely research based route if you prefer.

One of the key features of this degree is the ability for you to develop areas of personal interest in association with the extensive research skills of the teaching staff. Core modules are taken in research based skills development and you can select from a range of optional modules in areas such as Sustainability, Digital Architecture and Project Management.

The full time academic staff is supplemented by studio teaching staff drawn from leading London architectural practices, ensuring your tuition remains at the forefront of the discipline.
