University of Bath March
MArch (RIBA part 2)
The application process for 2017 entry is now open
The MArch at Bath provides a supportive academic environment which encourages each student to explore and develop their own architectural identity within a professionally focused course.
The course has a unique structure. The first semester is an integrated placement, which may be an extension of a student’s year in practice. This is followed by three semesters of academic study (a year and a half) leading to a fully prescribed and accredited ARB/RIBA Part 2 professional qualification as an architect.
This course is not suitable for students wishing to study on a part-time basis, including those in parallel employment within an architectural practice.
The MArch provides for the development of sophisticated analytical and reflective design skills combined with accruing knowledge required as a practising architect. This process is nurtured and encouraged through specialist tutorial support from within and without the architectural field, as well as by lecture courses in the fields of architectural history, theory and science.
Students will have sole use of an individually dedicated work space in one of the studios in the Department of Architecture & Civil Engineering. The studios have 24 hour access, 365 days a year, and are supported by fully equipped workshops, CAD labs, printing and library facilities. The building itself was designed by Alison and Peter Smithson in the 1980s.
