University of Brighton Part 2 Architecture

University of Brighton Part 2 Architecture

The Master of Architecture (MArch) RIBA Part II course is a highly creative, research-led and professional two-year masters rooted in studio laboratories and driven by individual enquiry. The MArch course is prescribed by the ARB and validated by RIBA, giving exemption from RIBA Part II.

We are part of the vibrant College of Arts and Humanities. Founded in 1859 as the School of Art, it offers an inspirational creative context for nurturing excellence in our work. Our distinct research-led approach filters through all aspects of the course, with rigorous inquiry fusing innovation, regulation and social commentary. This student-focused approach offers the opportunity for you to investigate your personal architectural agenda, developing your own critical position and design language prior to entry into the profession.

The studio laboratories are driven by tutors’ personal research agendas and all staff are actively engaged within this field of enquiry as academics or practitioners. The stimulating mix of practitioners and academics across the course builds conversations, with visiting lecturers and critics further feeding the dialogue. Recent visiting lecturers have included Neil Denari, Perry Kulper, Chris Thurlbourne, Michael Jemtrud, and our close links with practice ensure stimulating review panels. We place critical thought at our core and look forward to you joining the conversation.

Entry requirements

Applications are competitive and considered on an individual basis through a process of portfolio review and interview. Practice experience is recommended and there is a minimum requirement of a lower second class undergraduate degree in architecture or a closely related subject such as interior architecture. RIBA Part 1 is not a prerequisite for entry on to the course.

To register as an architect with the Architects Registration Board (ARB) in the UK, RIBA Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 are required. Those without RIBA Part 1 would therefore need to undertake this independently in
