Summary

Architecture with the University of Plymouth is offered as a one year MA or a two year MArch.

Our two year MArch Architecture course is fully validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and prescribed by the Architects Registration Board (ARB) to the requirements at Part 2 level – with National Student Survey results for the MArch (not including BA Architecture) for the past two years at 100 per cent for overall student satisfaction. In a world ever-increasingly in flux – economically, environmentally, socio-culturally – there’s an ever greater need for architects able to think creatively, critically and strategically. You’ll be supported in a design and research-led critical inquiry, testing your work in the public domain through live projects in the UK and overseas. You will develop your own sense of praxis, while exploring the potential of architecture to generate more sustainable, inclusive and resilient places. Within six months of degree completion, 100 per cent of our graduates have found professional employment in the UK, Europe and Asia* – with award-winning architects such as AHMM, Allies and Morrison, Feilden Clegg Bradley, Hopkins, John McAslan, Keith Williams, Make, Nicholas Hare and Walters and Cohen.

Our one year MA Architecture programme aims to support you in developing proficiency in architectural design, in the process of developing both an urban design and a detailed building design. Your study will be set in an exploration of new urban forms which are being generated in response to the changing nature of cities, notably increasing regional and global connectivity, and shifting cultural, economic, ecological, political, social and physical conditions and demands. Following completion of the MA Architecture programme, you'll have the opportunity to continue study on the RIBA-validated MArch Architecture programme.

**Key features:**
* Get creative with our amazing facilities and resources. You’ll be based in our eye-catching Faculty of Arts building in the heart of the campus, surrounded by students and staff from other art courses. And, you’ll have 2.0 square metres of desk to call your own.

* Interact with the public domain with architecture that’s responsive to people, places and tectonics. Work with local communities and institutions, including city councils, business organisations and non-governmental organisations.

* Work on live studio-based projects, both in the UK and abroad. Previous projects have been based in China, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Spain and the UK.

* Benefit from our future-facing programme that features a strong socio-cultural, urban and sustainability dimension.

* Learn from tutors with industry experience and interdisciplinary research interests. Our school was described as ‘charged’ by The Architects’ Journal.
