Course Description

Architecture MSci integrates the development of architectural design skills with an understanding of the complex social and technical environments in which buildings are produced, and includes a year’s architectural placement. The programme guides students to become architects who are expert researchers and are both the initiators of building designs and effective members of the building team.

  • The Bartlett’s Architecture MSci encourages and empowers students to take an integrated approach to becoming an architect from the get-go, compressing the existing route to five, including an architectural placement. 

  • Students work closely with tutors and practitioners to explore and research design and construction issues which shape today’s built environment, learning to incorporate specialist information with sophisticated designs, responding to different historical, cultural and physical settings. 

  • The integrated placement provides the opportunity to learn about architectural practice first-hand and gives students looking to achieve Part 1 and 2 accreditation the potential to accelerate their education, increase their earning power sooner and save a proportion of their tuition fees.

  • The school is renowned for its innovative and experimental research in the discipline. The Bartlett has been voted the UK's best by The Architect's Journal every year since 2001. 

Accreditation

The Bartlett School of Architecture is actively seeking accreditation from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and prescription from the Architects Registration Board (ARB) so that this degree will be validated as both meeting the requirements for RIBA/ARB Part 1 and RIBA/ARB Part 2.
