Masters in Environmental Building
Climate change poses two key challenges to modern architecture: how can buildings be made sustainable, and how can they be designed to take account of the effects of climate change? This masters degree faces these challenges through a unique combination of academic study with hands-on practical work, giving you the knowledge, skills and experience you need to develop an environmental career in the built environment sector.
The course uses the concepts of sustainability and adaptation transformation to frame an understanding of the built environment at the community and individual buildings level. Key building issues covered by the course include energy management and low energy design, sustainable materials, environmental performance assessment and energy provision. Students may further pursue interests in urban design, communities, ecology, water, ecological sanitation, politics and economics....

The MArch Architecture programme is for graduates of architecture with ARB/RIBA Part 1 who wish to gain exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 2. Our aim is to prepare students for the complexities of contemporary architectural practice by providing a rich mix of rigorous academic and professional teaching.
All students choose a design unit within which to undertake their project work, each unit has a different specialism across the themes of; digital surrealism, film and animation, biotechnology, art practice and contemporary culture. The units are led by a highly experienced team of internationally recognised design tutors.
The first year of the programme starts by developing advanced skills in urban design and digital representation that can be applied to a major building project in conjunction with a professionally mentored 'Design Realisation' technical report. Additionally, students are exposed to current theoretical trends that form the basis for ambitious speculations on contemporary architecture....
Accredited by the Royal British Institute of Architects (RIBA), this postgraduate diploma offers the professional award of RIBA Part 2. Course offered on a full-time and
Our programme encourages debate and enquiry about contemporary culture, the postmodern city, and relationships between urban and landscape conditions. You'll consider these through diverse responses to the architectural design projects, and critical research expressed in extended, structured writing.
This course will see you build on analytical design skills and professional competencies established at the undergraduate level, with a focus on innovation in design, construction, and resource efficient technology. Working in vertical design studios, students will develop an understanding of, and methods relevant to contemporary professional practice, together with an ability to produce complex and diverse design proposals....

The MArch (Part 2) is a long-established and well-respected course that is prescribed by the ARB and validated by the RIBA to give exemption from the second stage of professional education. The emphasis of the course is on innovative design work, and on developing a caring and critical approach to the study and practice of architecture.
The course fosters diversity of choice, interpretation and approach, whether in design projects or more academic research. The former focuses on sophisticated design programmes (in formal, technical, professional or urban terms) that demand rigour and self-criticism. The latter focuses on your major dissertation, an extended piece of specialised research into architecture and its historical or theoretical contexts.
The course has three main objectives: to develop your design ability through project-based experimentation; to present an evaluation and critique of your coursework within a broad cultural context, and in light of technical, economic and legal constraints; and to promote the articulate explanation and representation of quality and value in design projects.
The course aims to attract a cohort of students from around the world and seeks to give you the opportunity to build your own global network of collaborators.
The Master of Architecture (Global Practice) recognizes the global and interdisciplinary nature of design practice in the built environment. It is designed for professionals with ambitions to lead in global design practice. In teaching, learning, and assessment, the emphasis is on interdisciplinary teamwork and project-based design in the built environment.
There is scope for students to design the Masters Design Project to suit their aspirations in academic research or design practice in the built environment. The programme involves global design practices in collaboration with participants and aims to produce employable leaders in Architecture and allied disciplines in a global context....
