We believe people and communities should be part of the design process. This ethos makes our MArch one of the most innovative and influential in the UK.

Through our unique live projects you can work with local, regional and international groups on real-life challenges. You could be building, designing urban masterplans or designing in detail.

The design teaching is studio based with several research-led options. Programmes run by specialist staff link together lectures, studio work and research.

Providing professional accreditation as an architect, the degree is currently validated by the RIBA at Part 2 and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB). Your study will be mainly studio based, with design projects each year.

To qualify as an architect, you’ll produce at least one comprehensive design project and a dissertation.
