Architecture MArch at Queen's University Belfast

The Architecture MArch course at Queen's University Belfast gives students the opportunity to work alongside practicing architects to prepare for professional practice.

School: Queen's University Belfast
Course: Architecture MArch
Location: Belfast, Northern Ireland
Course dates: September 2022 to June 2024
Application deadline: 30 June 2022

An exciting, creative Master’s degree with accreditation from the ARB and RIBA, for students with an undergraduate degree in architecture who wish to progress to final qualification as a practicing architect.

Your focus will be to investigate the relationships between critical practice, design, and research in the making of architectural proposals. The work produced throughout this two-year Master’s is a collaborative effort between you, our academics and practicing architects.

Our studio is divided up into five thematic studio groups, each led by a pair of tutors. Each of the groups also features external consultants who will contribute to teaching throughout the year. You’ll be engaging with real projects and real clients locally, and embarking on worldwide field trips – plus our Erasmus scheme gives you the chance to study at a European university.

This course encourages lateral thinking, problem-solving, creativity and engagement with issues in a self-critical process. But it is also broad in its engagement. It will address issues as diverse as our survival on the planet and local engagement with culture and craft - the making of anything from an entire city to a door handle.

Applications to this course have now closed.
