The MArch course is prescribed by the ARB and validated by RIBA, giving exemption from RIBA Part II.


Their distinct research-led approach filters through all aspects of this course, with rigorous inquiry fusing innovation, regulation and social commentary. Master of Architecture RIBA Part 2 degree is offered by University of Brighton.


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 design 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. We place critical thought at our core and look forward to you joining the conversation.

Programme Structure

  • Year 1: Strategy

We see the first year of the course as an evolution of your current skill set to embrace a critical engagement with design. The design studio laboratories will ask you to engage with a research-based approach to a generation of design strategies and architectural proposals, and to critically reflect upon your developing conclusions.

  • Year 2: Integration

A self-directed research-based design thesis develops throughout the final year of the course. This offers you the opportunity to deeply explore your own architectural position informed by your design studio laboratory’s research agenda.
