The MArch is designed to equip you with the skills you need to succeed in your chosen career. Critical thinking, independent learning, imaginative solutions and the rigorous justification of design decisions are at the heart of our course. The architectural profession is rapidly developing through the influence of new technologies, emerging markets and political and ecological drivers. You will develop the tools to respond flexibly to authentic situations and possibilities, to deal with contingency and complexity. Accredited by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) for the purpose of a Part 2 qualification. Validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) at Part 2 level for the purpose of eligibility for membership of the RIBA. The skills you will acquire are transferable and focus upon: autonomous learning; authentic and analytical methods of inquiry; critical curiosity; social responsibility; and design and communication skills via a comprehensive mix of manual and digital methods.
