Education Aims

The MSt in Architecture provides an alternative to the traditional full time route to qualifying as an architect. Students must have completed ARB/RIBA Part I through a recognised degree course or apprenticeship. Students apply in their year-out through the architectural practice they are working for. The Cambridge course is taught in short two-week residential courses held throughout the year which mix Master Classes, Lectures, Supervisions, Seminars and Studio work. The lectures are taught by experts from inside the University and from elsewhere. The Master Classes are taught by leading practitioners in their particular fields. The result is a unique course that seeks to prepare the student for the rapidly changing world of professional practice in the 21st century.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the programme and completion of the End Point Assessment, successful students will have acquired all the skills and knowledge necessary to act as an architect to complete RIBA/ARB Part II and RIBA/ARB Part III and becoming fully registered.


Our apprenticeship route has been agreed in principle with the RIBA and ARB so that validation / prescription will be in place by the time of graduation. Following the completion of the MSt, the student will then progress to take an End Point Assessment which takes 6-10 months and leads to the final Part III qualification which allows the candidate to register as an architect and become a member of the RIBA (Chartered Architect).
