Study Details

MArch: 2 years full-time

By offering you specialist options, our part 2 course will help you position yourself as a resourceful, adaptable and skilled individual within a complex and changing professional landscape

The part 2 qualification, accredited by ARB/RIBA, constitutes the final two years of the MArch course. We welcome direct applications from students who hold part 1 (or equivalent) qualifications in Architecture.

The course asks you to build on the skills and knowledge gained in part 1, and develop your ideas and individual position through engagement with specialist input and complex architectural design/thesis projects.

At this level you will be given the maximum opportunities to choose a programme of study which suits your emerging interests as a maturing designer. We treat our wider context, the city and the landscape, as a live-lab asking students to engage with real places and real problems. You will focus on designing buildings and environments which respond to the needs of the individuals and society; architecture, spaces and places that are critically robust in terms of their cultural context, aspiration and intention.
