Comments about MA Architecture and Urban Design - At the institution - Liverpool - Merseyside
The MA is aimed at students of architecture who wish to pursue careers in architectural design, architectural research, architectural education, environmental journalism, or to register a specialisation within contemporary architectural practice – all with an accent on city and urban design matters.
Each applicant for this MA programme will have been awarded a Diploma in Architecture with RIBA Part 2 exemption or an equivalent qualification from another validated department of architecture. In addition, a subsequent entry requirement will be the successful completion of a selection interview (or equivalent if geographical difficulties exist), during which the history of previous academic achievement of each candidate will be taken into account. Acceptance to this programme will depend upon significant urban design experience.
MA Architecture and Urban Design
This MA facilitates the development of previously acquired architectural/urban design skills with participants taking them to a higher academic level. It provides an opportunity for students both from within and outside the university to convert their academic achievements achieved during a five year architecture course to a higher level of proven skill.
The programme of work enables the achievement of a higher level of academic excellence in one field – Architecture and Urban Design. The delivery of the programme is in the form of structured and regular individual tutoring of agreed drawn project work and a written and illustrated Report of 5,000 – 7,500 words. The focus of study and particular method of delivery is selected following consultation with each student, in accordance with the specific area of expertise which he or she has developed during the prerequisite architecture/urban design course. The experience offered to the student is therefore to clearly focus their desired area of expertise, in order to produce structured work of a demonstrably higher level than their previous achievements.
