Architecture

The course provides an opportunity for architecture graduates to achieve a Master of Architecture and part 2 accreditation from the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA); this is the 2nd stage towards joining the UK Register of Architects (students may continue to take their part 3 at UWE, at which point they can join the UK Register of Architects); the course has been designed to allow students a degree of specialism within the programme, as well as meeting the ARB/RIBA criteria; these specialisms draw on the research expertise of the department, and include urban design, design research, sustainable development, environmental engineering, planning/contextual studies and health; these specialisms allow students to develop a portfolio of work that enables them to target a particular architectural career path on graduation.
