This course centres around the development and application of specialist architectural knowledge and advanced architectural design techniques.
Through a range of specialist lectures, seminars and design studio modules you will explore current and future issues facing urban designers, architects and technologists, and develop the skills, knowledge and awareness required in the fast-moving world of contemporary architectural research and practice.
The MArch Design is offered on a full-time basis over one year. It does not convey professional accreditation in the UK.
In the autumn and spring semesters, you will complete 120 credits worth of modules. This will include a major research-led design 'package' in one of the specialist areas offered in each semester, consisting of a studio project and seminar series, as well as an additional lecture/seminar module.
Over the summer semester you will complete a 60-credit written dissertation.
During this course, you will spend some time on studio-based exploration and innovation across a broad range of options, working alongside architects, urban designers and technologists in the design studios, seminars and lectures.
Entry requirements: 2:1 degree (or international equivalent) in architecture or a similar subject. This must include modules in architectural design amounting to 25%-50% of total credits. An architectural design portfolio must also be submitted.
