An exciting, creative Master's degree with accreditation from the ARB and RIBA, for students with a first degree in architecture who wish to progress their studies to final qualification as a practising architect.
Your focus will be to investigate the relationships between critical practice, design and research in the making of architectural proposals. The work produced throughout this two year Master's is a collaborative effort between you, our academics and practicing architects.
Our studio is divided up into five thematic studio groups, each led by a pair of tutors. Each of the groups also feature an external 'consultant' who will contribute to teaching throughout the year.
This course encourages lateral thinking, problem solving, creativity and engagement with issues in a self-critical process. But it is also broad in its engagement. It will address issues as diverse as our survival on the planet and local engagement with culture and craft - the making of anything from an entire city to a door handle.
WHAT WILL EXCITE YOU?
You'll be engaging with real projects and real clients locally, and embarking on worldwide field trips - plus our Erasmus scheme gives you the chance to study at a European university. Our students have gone to places such as Munich, Barcelona, Istanbul and Croatia.
You will be based in Belfast, a compelling city for exploring socially engaged urbanism.
You'll enjoy a healthy staff to student ratio, good studios, where you'll each have your own space, excellent workshops and technicians.
Please note: Applications for this course, received after 30th June may not be accepted. A deposit will be required to secure a place.
