The MA in Professional Studies is a route to registration as an architect in the UK, approved by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) and Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) at Part 3 level. On the course, students acquire an in-depth understanding of the legal and economic aspects of architectural practice and construction procurement, and the related skills necessary to practice effectively.
The course has an outstanding reputation. This is reflected in the Commendations it has received from successive RIBA Visiting Boards including from the latest, in July 2016, when the Commendation was for its ‘breadth, depth and rigour’.
On the course students explore the professional aspects of practice as an architect, including the construction industry and role of the profession, development controls, construction law, and project and practice management. We aim to inspire our students with a keen interest in current issues relating to the profession. Students are encouraged to explore their own relevant areas of interest, and to develop critical and independent judgement, and the ability to manage complex processes.
Our master’s course is led by Professor Sarah Lupton, who is well-known for her expertise in professional practice and has published several books that are used widely by construction and design professionals and on postgraduate courses.
