Course Summary

Course Summary

Our award-winning Architecture department enjoys an international reputation for excellence and for producing architects who combine technical skills with practical experience. We believe architecture is about engagement. Rather than sitting in a studio designing buildings theoretically you will go out and work on projects in the local area – a thriving, dynamic part of London with huge infrastructure developments. You will fulfil your creative potential and perfect your skills by working on designs that tackle real-life issues not just in east London but around the world. Our MArch Architecture course is fully accredited, furthering your progress towards becoming a qualified architect.

What You'll Learn

The MArch Architecture course is designed to prepare you to respond creatively to the uncertainties you will experience in your professional life as an architect. Sometimes students are unclear about the relevance of what they are doing to become an architect. The programme does not attempt to replicate practice, but does prepare you for practice. It also enables you to continue to develop fruitfully after you leave the school. Just as in professional practice, the school is a learning community in which students and teachers learn together. You work in small groups that stay together for a term or a year. Because the groups are small you get individual attention from the tutors and you learn from other students who are dealing with similar problems.

Your Future Career

With our MArch behind you, you will be fully prepared to become a qualified architect. Our course is fully accredited and grants you Part 2 exemption from the ARB/RIBA professional examinations. You will graduate from a course that enjoys an international reputation for producing award-winning designers capable of producing complex architectural proposals with skill and sensitivity. The skills you will acquire – superior analysis, creative thinking, technological expertise and draughtsmanship – will serve you well in a variety of work environments. You will also benefit from our superb connections. We have well established links with a variety of architectural practices and local organisations and these have enabled our students to secure some enviable jobs. It’s up to you how you make an impact. Some of our graduates go on to work in the public sector and culturally engaged practices. Others choose to join internationally awarded design practices or large global offices. Want to be your own boss? You could even set up your own Architectural Design practice. After this course, you’ll have the toolkit you need to set yourself up for success.

Modules

The overall objective of the module is to enable you to work with intelligent, spatial and contextual design tasks that are developed through a critical understanding of theoretical, societal and ethical positions on architecture and the built environment.
