Learn to develop your own design methods with our Master of Architecture (MArch).
Our approach to teaching is based on a set of values which redefine the function of architecture in terms of the human relationships that underlie society. And how people really live, relate to each other and use the physical context of their environment.
You will develop basic skills which relate to the expanded world of architecture. In particular photography, film-making and devising narratives.
You will build on your imagination, individuality, and inspiration. And develop an experiential understanding of the world.
In looking for new approaches to problems you will gain qualities such as:
- verbal fluency
- breadth of interest
Our students are regularly recognised in national and international prizes and awards. They go on to work for many of the best-known practices in the country.
How to apply
We advise applying in advance to secure places, and allow sufficient time for applications to be reviewed.
There is no formal application deadline (recruitment closes when teaching capacity is reached).
Applicants should also factor any time needed to meet offer conditions, arrange accommodation, and obtain a UK Tier 4 visa (if applicable).
