Take on the Challenge.
Architecture today presents a highly diverse range of graduate career opportunities in which to operate... Our degree is designed to respond to this condition.

Build a Shared Future
The programme encompasses design, technology and practice, history and theory. Much of the degree is studio based with an emphasis on self-directed study and ambitious agendas. The focus of the MArch is to investigate and develop the relationships between critical practice, design and research in the making of architectural proposals.
