Introduction to the course This contemporary course is focused on the key areas of theory, design, technology and the real practice of architecture, providing a dynamic and stimulating approach to postgraduate architectural education. Arranged in a series of ?clusters? taught principally in the design stu-dio, it promotes the notion of integrated learning and working, particularly in the areas of the-ory, urban design, and design and technology. Many candidates have degrees from other UK schools of architecture, resulting in a dynamic body of high-calibre students. The course is one of the few in the UK which offer a dedicated part-time route. It is at the forefront of part-time architectural education and as such attracts students from all over the country. Your learning experience The programme operates with a strong and diverse staff team that encompasses both full-time staff and numerous visiting tutors, principally from local practice. The School also strives to involve other notable practitioners, such as eminent architects, visiting professors and world-renowned consultants. Throughout the course, there is constant involvement in design projects, ranging from open-ended architectural speculations to the preparation of production information drawings. These are supported by theory and history lectures, which examine contemporary architectural positions. There are also a number of modules in architectural technology and professional studies. A dissertation or research paper is required on a theme related to the course. Project themes are negotiated with tutors. Career prospects The course is stage two of the professional development programme to becoming an architect. The course is recognised by ARB and RIBA for exemption from Part II examination. This course is only available if you have RIBA Part I exemption. If you do not have RIBA Part I the MA in Architectural Studies offers an alternative route.
