The discipline is exceptionally responsive to change and actively engaging with both the internal world of ideas and external realities around us. Modernity in the broadest sense is a critical part of the world view of successful architects.
The Postgraduate Diploma in Architecture is a strongly design-based course, underpinned by a firm base in theory and technology. The department is committed to a studio system as being the best medium for the exchange of ideas. Students on the course choose from three design studios identified by subject and theme.
Each studio has developed its specialised approach to architecture based on specific responses to contemporary issues in the city, and the developing landscapes around cities.
Applicants for this course must also meet the following additional entry requirements:
a degree in architecture including the RIBA Part 1 professional qualification
overseas students must demonstrate that their work has RIBA Part 1 equivalence by contacting the Architects Registration Board
applicants for the part-time course should be working in practice
all students considered for admission will be required to attend an interview with a portfolio of work; if located overseas, applicants will be required to send a portfolio of work to the admissions tutor
The programme provides students who have completed an undergraduate degree in Architecture with the opportunity to define their own interests, speculating on and refining a personal response to the design and making of architecture.
