Admission Requirements

Entry requirements

  • Applicants normally have the following:

    • A 2.2 undergraduate degree, or equivalent, in Architecture with an overall performance in the final year of 50 % or above in the final year of study.

    • Have an exemption from the Architects Registration Board (ARB) & Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Part 1, but this is not compulsory*

    • Submission of a satisfactory portfolio of design work

  • Having studied in an Architecture Course already you are required to submit a digital portfolio of the architectural design work undertaken in your previous course with your application. This can include a selection of edited design projects but must include one complete final stage project that shows the project entirely. This must include scaled plans, sections and elevations and technical consideration in term of constructional, environmental and constructional detail.

  • *Students without a RIBA / ARB recognised award at Part 1, will not be able to progress to UK registration as an Architect. Candidates in this position will either have to undertake Year 3 of the BSc Architecture / Master of Architecture, or apply to the ARB for Part 1 exemption through the external candidate route.

English requirements

  • Applicants whose first language is not English should have an IELTS of 6.5 overall, with no component lower than 5.5, or equivalent.

Course Information

Our RIBA and ARB accredited Master of Architecture Part 2 course will provide you with the opportunity to develop personal interests around three thematically distinct ‘Units’. You will develop your professional knowledge and skills through extended research-led projects, which you will work on individually and as part of a group.

Areas of enquiry can include those of current public debate and contention within Aberdeen city and region, or live scenarios where you will inform the deliberations and decision making of diverse organisations.

You will also have the fantastic opportunity to travel, whether on study trips to look at the very best of international design or on student exchanges in a partnership institution for one term in Year 5.
