Architecture MArch (Hons)
Study in our dedicated Architecture studios in the UK's only UNESCO City of Design on this integrated Masters course.
Dundee is an ideal location to study architecture due to its creative reputation and ambitious city regeneration.
You will gain essential knowledge and skills in design, communications, architectural history and theory, and sustainable technology.
As we are part of the University's art school, you will benefit from excellent facilities and workshops, a highly creative atmosphere, and our vibrant studio culture. Design tutorials and the majority of learning takes place in the architecture studio.
You’ll be encouraged to work in a ‘hands-on’ way developing and testing your ideas through manual and digital drawings, models and prototypes.
You’ll work in small studio groups and on a one-to-one basis with experienced tutors, who are usually registered architects, providing a supportive learning environment.
You will have the opportunity to join study visits and exchanges, experiencing world class architecture. Since 2018 our students have had opportunities to work, study or compete in Edinburgh, Hannover, London, Mainz, Paris, Shanghai, Sydney, Tongi, Venice, Vicenza, and Wuhan.
To qualify as an architect in the UK you will study for five years and then complete 24 months of practical training in an architectural practice.
Our students typically split this in to:
- three years of academic study (ARB/RIBA Part 1)
- a year in practice
- two years of academic study (ARB/RIBA Part 2)
- a further period in practice
If you need a Student visa to study with us, you would need to complete your 24 months in practice after your five years of academic study. You would need to apply for an additional visa at the end of the course.
