At the Welsh School of Architecture, we provide a fully accredited route to becoming a professional architect in the UK. This MArch programme is the second stage (Part 2) of this route and is intended for those who wish to continue their education towards becoming a qualified architect. The course is approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB). If you do not already have a Part 1 qualification, please take a look at our BSc Architectural Studies.
Our MArch is a two year programme which is studied on a full-time basis. It is unique in that in the first year of study, you will predominantly be based in an architectural practice, undertaking a combination of practice-based and academic work. In your second year you will be based in the Welsh School of Architecture, Bute Building.
Throughout the course, we explore the full range of skills required to be an architect and enable you to develop your personal and professional experience. To prepare you for the demands of the architectural profession, we build on and extend your existing knowledge to include the design of more complex buildings and the demands of urban design. We also study the professional and legal aspects of an architect’s work. We also encourage you to pursue knowledge in a specialist area through a written dissertation project.
Distinctive features: - Study in one of the top schools of architecture in the UK.
Accredited by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB) at Part 2 level.
Available as a two year full-time course with the first year mainly spent in an architectural practice.
Learn from our academic staff and experienced tutors from leading UK architectural practices who have specialisms in a wide range of areas.
Master of Architecture - MArch
|Level||RQF Level 7|
Welsh School of Architecture graduates must normally have our degree of BSc in Architectural Studies with at least a 2.1 Honours classification.
If you are entering from another School, you would normally need at least a 2.1 class degree or equivalent qualification which carries exemption from the Part 1 of the RIBA. In all cases, a strong design portfolio is a requisite.
We will consider candidates from other schools with overall classifications of 2.2 who have exceptionally strong grades in design modules at degree level (high 2.1 and above). Students who believe themselves to be in this category are welcome to apply.
Selection is based on qualifications and a portfolio, but it may also involve an interview.
