TEACHING AND LEARNING

 

The MArch is your final stage of formal academic architecture education leading towards professional registration as an architect. It is a professionally recognised award (prescribed at Part 2 level by the Architects Registration Board and validated at Part 2 level by the Royal Institute of British Architects) and developed for students who have completed RIBA Part 1 for example a BA (Hons) Architecture course and, typically, one year in practice.

 

The studio element of the course is delivered through research-driven clusters called ateliers that align strong areas of research activity and mutual interests via trios of staff. This will enable you to develop ideological positions that are critically underpinned by seminars, workshops and symposiums.

 

The first year of study will enables you to locate yourself within a broad range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism.

 

The second year will build upon this knowledge and developing skillset to orientate you towards a suitable role in the parameters of the profession.

 

Study tours and international collaborations with other leading schools and organisations take place each year and there is the possibility for exchange under the Erasmus programme.

 

All students will be required to make a number of different submissions, including detailed examinations of building proposals, 12,000-word dissertation, annotated reports, methods exploration and a design thesis.
