About the Course

If you are a dedicated learner and aspire to be an innovator in the practice of architecture, this five‑year double degree will help you to realise your ambitions. This double degree combines the undergraduate Bachelor of Design in Architecture (BDesArch) with the postgraduate Master of Architecture (MArch). You will additionally attain undergraduate Honours, which otherwise requires an additional full year of study. As a graduate, you will be highly regarded in the architectural profession for your rigorous, critical thought, and for your creativity. The double degree advances these attributes, and further empowers you to become a leader in your profession. You will master the array of skills required in current architectural practice, and just as importantly, the research focus of the embedded Honours component will equip you with the intellectual rigour and dexterity to challenge current orthodoxy and drive the profession forward in innovative ways. Future career pathways for graduates could include employment in world renowned architectural practices, related built environment sectors or academia and research.
