Summary

Why study this course?

Urban design is a growing profession. Join a course that has led to careers in local government, planning, development and regeneration, and expand your career prospects across architecture, design and research.

Our Architecture, Cities and Urbanism MA focuses on problem-based learning in urban contexts. During the course you will work to define urban, social, economic and policy problems. Spatial design will help you both as a research tool to explore possible solutions, and as a container to situate and analyse other types of research knowledge.

More about this course

Whilst based at the School of Art, Architecture and Design, teaching for this master’s degree is flexible and responsive, taking place in studios, seminars, workshops, presentations, at exhibitions, on walks and through social media and other online communication tools. This range of teaching methods allows tutors to adapt as your needs change throughout the course.

Over the academic year you’ll witness your work evolve and develop as you complete your portfolio-based assessments. Thanks to our atelier system of studios and units, you’ll study alongside architecture students, with a choice of postgraduate units to study in.

The lecturers are contemporary urban practitioners and researchers, and numerous guests and commentators are also invited to participate. As a result you’ll begin to build a network of relevant contacts, all the while keeping up with the latest developments in urban design and planning.

You’ll learn how to use the tools of urban design and urban research with a promotional approach, as a prompt for policy change and as a form of activism, which in turn will help you to effect real change in the specialism you later pursue.

Courses in architecture at London Met have gained a significant reputation for demonstrating a broad expertise in urban matters, as well as in the detail of architecture. The research group behind this degree undertakes extensive research activity that will support your study experience.
