Course description

This studio-based course will help you develop your own distinctive design practice. You’ll explore design processes and methodologies. There are opportunities to work on real-life projects with local, regional and international groups as part of our Live Projects initiative.

You can take the course as a stand-alone MA or as preparation for a PhD via our PhD by Design programme.

You'll investigate architectural themes in depth, working closely with your studio tutor. The aim is to consider design within the context of rigorous and innovative research.

You'll specialise in the theory and practice of design and develop the skills and knowledge to be a creative and original architect.

We’re one of the UK's top architecture schools. Our international research projects shape policy and address public and professional needs.

Entry requirements

You’ll need a 2:1 honours degree or an equivalent qualification related to design in the built environment, such as architecture, landscape architecture or urban planning. Your degree doesn’t have to be design- based. If you have a lot of professional design experience we’ll consider your application. We’d like to see your portfolio to get an idea of your design abilities.
