MArch Architecture and Landscape Architecture

School of Architecture, Faculty of Social Sciences

We are one of the UK’s top architecture schools. You’ll enjoy the freedom to express yourself and develop the skills you need for your career.

Our built environment contributes a high percentage of carbon emissions and is one of the causes for global warming. I'm hoping to apply what I learn to influence people in the building industry to consider their impact on the environment.

Course description

This course is a unique opportunity to qualify as both an architect and landscape architect. It is open to students with previous combined or separate degrees in both architecture and landscape architecture. The degree is awaiting prescription from the RIBA at Part 2, LI Part 3 and the ARB.

Your study focuses on a range of themed, design-based studios dedicated to specific areas of practice or research. There are compulsory modules in landscape architecture, humanities, management, building and plant sciences, and an integrated architecture and landscape architecture project.

To qualify as an architect, you’ll produce at least one comprehensive design project. You’ll also have the opportunity to work with local or regional groups on a real-life challenge through our Live Projects initiative.

Financial information for postgraduate taught courses

Dr Cristina Cerulli

One of the great satisfactions of my work comes from working with our students, whom I see as collaborators/co-researchers. Generally, though, it’s the idea of creating something, be it a module, a piece of research or an architectural project, that might transform, however slightly, the status quo towards something more ethical, just and sustainable.
