Postgraduate study in Architecture
Architecture explores the design of buildings, places and spaces and considers how they fit into the world around them.
What can you study in Architecture?
Take your architectural knowledge to the next level with a postgraduate qualification. Depending on your career aspirations, you can choose to complete a recognised professional masters programme, or undertake a more research-oriented degree.
Because the built environment fields operate collaboratively, we offer combined masters qualifications that help you prepare for the multidisciplinary nature of modern practice. This gives you the skills and knowledge of two masters qualifications in less time than it would take you to complete them separately.
Postgraduate study in Architecture gives you the opportunity to explore your personal research and design interests. We encourage you to use these to develop critical thinking and technical expertise in order to thrive in the built environment disciplines.
