The course is for students who have completed RIBA Part One for example a BA (Hons) Architecture course. The Master of Architecture (MArch) programme 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) leading towards a career as a professional architect. The MArch course is an opportunity to complete the academic components of architecture education and develop a portfolio suited to employment opportunities in contemporary professional practice at one of the most popular and highly regarded architecture schools in the UK. The award is jointly conferred by Manchester Metropolitan University and the University of Manchester and students benefit from access to the physical and intellectual resources of both institutions.
