The study of architecture requires an enquiring and imaginative mind, to analyse and consider new possibilities for buildings that will improve people’s quality of life. It embodies many issues and challenges: the creation of better places to live, work, and relax; designing buildings and cities that recognise the cultural diversity of the population; proposing ideas that contribute socially and economically to the community; and using imagination and innovation to do all this more responsibly and efficiently for a world with finite resources. Our MArch Architecture course, which is accredited by the RIBA and ARB, will provide you with the professional and creative skills required for a successful career in architecture. The taught course is complemented by a year's practical experience, allowing you to gain valuable experience of architectural practice. You will also have the fantastic opportunity to travel, whether on study trips to look at the very best of international design or on student exchanges.
