  • Entry requirements
    Entry Requirements Appropriate first-degree qualifications. Specific requirements for international students may also apply. If your first undergraduate qualification does not carry Part 1 status, you are invited to apply for this non-ARB-validated programme. This programme is open to applicants with a good first degree in architecture and a strong portfolio. This programme runs parallel to the MArch, to allow graduates without an ARB-validated Part 1 qualification to undertake an MArch programme in Edinburgh. Applicants who intend to practise outside the UK do not necessarily require the ARB-validated Part 2 status. However, many applicants do wish to gain the ARB Part 2 status. In this case, students on the programme are welcome to apply to transfer into the accredited MArch programme. This requires you to pass the Part 1 examination, involving an interview and portfolio presentation, held by the ARB in London.

  • Course description
    How You Will Be Taught

    You will take a series of advanced level design exercises and projects, engaging with structural, environmental, cultural, theoretical and aesthetic questions. You will study Contemporary Architectural Theory, and Technology. You will also take a Management Practice and Law module, dealing with the legal, contractual and economic parameters of architectural practice.

    The programme combines studio-based work that provides a balanced understanding of architecture with a stimulating environment that enables creativity, experimentation and critical engagement with architectural design. It offers the opportunity to select from:

        * studios linked across the full two years;
        * studios that focus on the development of a specialism across two semesters;
        * a series of discrete thematic studios that vary from year to year.

    Opportunities exist for collaborative working with other international institutions. There is an emphasis on personal development and the evolution of the student's individual viewpoint. During the course of the programme you will complete a comprehensive design project, accompanied by an illustrated report explaining its theoretical, environmental and technical dimensions. Projects in the MArch programme are developed by way of drawings, models, digital representations and written reports. The trajectory of the student's work across the two years is documented in an academic portfolio.

    The existing MArch degree is accredited until 2010. Application for accreditation of the new jointly-owned degree is being sought during 2008.
