Course Description

This second stage of the two tier BSc/MArch programme of study is intended for those who wish to continue their education towards becoming qualified architects. It comprises two years of study, one year of which is based at the School, the other predominantly in practice.

• Study professionally associated aspects of the architect’s work and, within this experience, to become able to meet the demands being made in the architectural profession
• Pursue specialisms within the field and, in this process, receive a grounding in research methods and an in-depth study of an aspect of architectural design
