Course summary

This course offers a distinctive and dynamic research-led learning experience leading to exemption from the Architect’s Registration Board (ARB) and the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) part 2 examination. The course is delivered as an inter-linked series of studio projects and related studies that leads towards a final year design thesis. The projects run on a Vertical Studio structure known as the SuperStudio. Replicating the dynamics, opportunities, and challenges inherent in an architectural practice, the Vertical Studio approach is one in which all students are taught together across all year groups in distinctly themed Studios.

The knowledge gained during this professional degree will support a wide range of employment opportunities in architecture practices, urban design bodies, architecture conservation organisations, and many governmental and private relevant institutions, or facilitate the route to PhD level research.
