If you wish to become a practising architect, you must complete the Architecture (Professional) from University of Auckland or one of the associated combined masters programmes (followed by additional requirements from the registration boards).
Following a year of advanced study, you will have the chance to explore an individual architectural design proposition, supported by a strong theoretical component, in a design thesis.
Successful completion of an MArch(Prof) qualifies you to work as an architectural graduate, with the goal of gaining full professional registration. You can also contribute to the industry as a designer, project manager, consultant or client liaison. Graduates also utilise their creative thinking in other fields, such as film or web design.
