In architecture, research and practice go hand in hand, with ground-breaking design inspiring great research and vice versa.
This three-month Advanced Architectural Research programme from University College London (UCL) allows students to develop their own research and/or design to an advanced level, ready to push new boundaries and change normalised modes of working either in academia or industry.
Many students on this programme work with their tutors to clarify a PhD proposal. Students are allocated an individual tutor who works with them to define an appropriate mode of research and submission, which may take the form of a physical or drawn piece, a personal exhibition or a written piece that could be extended into a conference paper or journal article.
