Course Summary

The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) recognises the global and interdisciplinary nature of design practice in the built environment. It is designed for professionals with ambitions to lead in global design practice. In teaching, learning and assessment, the emphasis is on interdisciplinary teamwork and project-based design in the built environment.

There is scope for students to design the Masters Design Project to suit their aspirations in academic research or design practice in the built environment. The programme involves global design practices in collaboration with participants, and aims to produce employable leaders in Architecture and allied disciplines in a global context.

The programme is aimed at architects and allied built environment professionals who are ambitious to take a leading role in architectural practice. They might want to grow their own practice or move into one of the big global practices.

The programme is focused on: Communicating effectively in interdisciplinary global working environments. Building a global network. Managing big, complex practices and projects. Designing sustainable buildings in a range of contexts from community self-builds to international airports. The main aim of the programme is to give students opportunities to undertake design projects, collaborating with a cohort of students from around the world and the UK in an intensive, one year, full-time format.

The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) is designed to prepare graduates to enter these new, collaborative work environments by providing the opportunity to develop new cross-cultural skills, attitudes and competencies and providing learning that is transferable in multiple contexts.

The programme aims to expand and transform students’ perspectives, helping them research and apply sustainable design and construction methods and techniques for managing diverse projects and teams in the context of global architectural and engineering practice. The programme is designed to provide a flexible and responsive learning environment that aims to prepare and equip graduates for growing environmental and social challenges, respects the diversity of the students’ own values and beliefs and looks to foster an outlook that is interdisciplinary, intercultural, innovative and inclusive. Students can exit at Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma level.
