Applicants should have completed a first degree (minimum award 2.2) in Architecture. Assessment of suitability to the course may also be undertaken by review of a portfolio of work and an interview. Overseas applicants whose first language is not English are required to have attained a recognised English Language qualification equivalent to IELTS 6.5 (minimun of 5.5 in each component).


The course is project oriented. You will develop design ideas in the studio, guided by semester tutors and, at regular intervals, by joint review panels of design tutors and external critics, who will comment on your progress.

Teaching is intensive and you learn by one-to-one and group discussions and regular presentations of work, so that continuous group and self-assessment is built in.
Technical workshops explore environmental, structural and constructional aspects of your design projects.
