This course is for students who have completed the BA (Hons) Architecture course and, typically, a year in practice. The course comprises studio (with integrated technology), dissertation and professional studies. The studio course is delivered through research-driven clusters called ateliers that align strong areas of research activity and mutual interests via trios of staff. This enables students to develop ideological positions that are critically underpinned through seminars, workshops and symposiums to enhance their knowledge and skills. The 1st year of their studies enables each student to locate themselves within a broad range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism; the 2nd year builds upon this knowledge and developing skillset to orientate each student towards a suitable role in the parameters of the profession. The programme has continued to maintain a diverse range of ateliers and expertise and enables us to provide a series of distinct and significant areas of focus with respect to the future of architecture and urbanism in a wider cultural context. At the beginning of each academic year you will make a preference from a choice of the School's ateliers. You would normally expect to spend a year studying with a particular atelier. For information on fees for this course please see our online prospectus information.
