Summary

MArch Architecture is for students who have completed BA (Hons) Architecture and, typically, spent a year in practice.

The course comprises studio (with integrated technology), a dissertation and professional studies, and is ideal if you're interested in exploring a range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism, and looking to pursue a career in roles associated with the development of sustainable urban spaces.

The studio element of the course is delivered through research-driven clusters called ateliers that align strong areas of research activity and mutual interests via trios of staff. This will enable you to develop ideological positions that are critically underpinned by seminars, workshops and symposiums.
The first year of study will enables you to locate yourself within a broad range of perspectives in relation to contemporary architecture and urbanism.
The second year will build upon this knowledge and developing skillset to orientate you towards a suitable role in the parameters of the profession.

MArch Architecture has continued to maintain a diverse range of ateliers and expertise, which enables us to provide a series of distinct and significant areas of focus with respect to the future of architecture and urbanism in a wider cultural context. At the beginning of each academic year you will choose from a range of the School's ateliers. You would normally expect to spend a year studying with a particular atelier.

This course is jointly accredited by The University of Manchester (UoM) and Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU), with cross-disciplinary connections between UoM's School of Environment, Education and Development (SEED), and MMU's Manchester Institute for Research and Innovation in Art and Design.
