    Course Summary

    Plymouth University’s MArch degree was designed to produce the kind of Architecture graduates that the world today – and most especially tomorrow – demands. Its focus is on giving you the tools and techniques you’ll need to create coherent, sustainable cities, structures and infrastructure in an economically and technologically viable manner.

    You’ll learn in modern, purpose built facilities in the exciting, interdisciplinary atmosphere of the Faculty of Arts building. You’ll come to understand how architectural designs can be responsive to the needs of people, the practicalities of geography and even the challenges of tectonics.

    The program content is prescribed by the ARB and fully validated by the RIBA for maximum employability on graduation. It is one of the few such courses to be assessed entirely on coursework – with no exams whatsoever. Part of this coursework will be one or more live, studio-based projects delivered in the UK, Europe or farther abroad.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    This degree program is typically delivered over two years at full time.

    Year 1

    You’ll deliver studio projects involving urban regeneration projects in the UK and overseas in your first year, as well as studying a set of 5 core modules. These will help you develop your design praxis, learn to work more sustainably and enhance your professional skills.

    Core Modules Include:

    • Urban Methodologies
    • Technical Design 1
    • Inception and Strategic Design
    • Detailed Design
    • Connecting Sustainable Practices

    Year 2

    In the last year of this 2 year program, you’ll take 4 more core modules, but you’ll also study a topic of your choice in much more depth.

    Core Modules Include:

    • Technical Design 2
    • Emerging Research in Architecture
    • Advanced Inception and Strategic Design
    • Advanced Detailed Design

    Optional Module

    You’ll select at least one optional module from those offered by the School of Architecture, Design and Environment for expanded research and specialisation of your degree program.

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Plymouth’s dedicated Teaching and Learning Support Team – the TLS – works hard to make sure every student has the best possible learning outcomes. They provide guidance, advice and support when developing modules and in selecting the most appropriate teaching methods. They also maintain a Knowledge Exchange as well as a variety of related networks and fora as well as putting on regular workshops, skills sessions and conferences.

    Career Possibilities

    This program is congruent with the requirements of both the ARB (Architects Registration Board) and the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects). As a result, an astounding 100% of recent program graduates have found professional level roles in a wide range of organisations in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia. Plymouth March graduates now work with architectural firms such as Walters and Cohen, Nicholas Hare, John McAslan and Feilden Clegg Bradley.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 2 year MArch degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned a 2:1 undergraduate degree or the international equivalent, but other qualifications are also accepted. The full list of qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.5 overall would qualify, for example.
