This programme is centred on studio work that is intended to stretch the boundaries of your design imagination. It is a modular course based on design project work, supported by lectures and seminars that examine the theoretical, practical and material dimensions of architecture. This course is designed to help you define the kind of architect you want to be and tailor your portfolio towards the practices in which you want to work or areas in which you want to demonstrate your expertise.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 Honours degree or international equivalent in architecture, which is recognised by the ARB as successful completion of RIBA Part 1, is preferred. Applicants with a lower or non-accredited qualification will be considered on individual basis providing they submit a strong portfolio and evidence of personal development. Applicants are preferred to have successfully completed a year in professional training. All applicants must submit a portfolio as part of the application process and may be requested to attend an interview; please note that whilst applicants can enter the programme without previously passing RIBA (Part 1), if they wish to practice in the UK they will need to satisfy the requirements of the RIBA by passing the RIBA Part 1 and Part 3 exams. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5, or equivalent.
