MArch Architecture

The MArch (RIBA Part2) course has always been a high-performing and forward-looking course. And, as in the past, our students today continue to capitalise on the high-quality teaching, and excellent facilities that we offer, to win international awards and to find employment in some of the most prestigious architectural practices. Many have also established innovative and successful practices of their own and play an influential role in the architectural culture of London and beyond.

We pride ourselves on offering a diverse and challenging range of strategies and approaches to design. This is made explicit in the choice offered to students both through the Design Studio system and many other aspects of the course. In this way we allow students to direct their studies towards their own interests, to find their identity as designers, and to position themselves for future employment. This year the course was reviewed and updated, placing even more emphasis on sustainability and on fostering a socially-aware approach to design.

Also returning to campus, this year’s OPEN once again hosts an amazing collection of work representing the diversity and imagination of all the MArch studios. The success of this exhibition is testament to the dedication of the staff and the talent of the MArch students.
