This programme aims to give students a critical understanding of key aspects of architecture and planning and the relationship between the two disciplines.
It offers a particularly wide range of choice for specialisation and combines architectural design studio sessions, lectures and individual research projects.
The programme is specifically designed for students with a background in architecture. It is especially valuable for international students seeking a UK qualification as it offers a range of modules which set UK approaches to architecture in a global context, allowing students to make their learning relevant to their own country.
It also provides a useful grounding for students considering progressing to PhD, or for those who wish to add a range of skills to an existing professional qualification in architecture.
The approach to this programme is characterised by a high degree of interaction with your tutor and the other students. The precise style of teaching depends upon the modules selected, but you will be exposed to:
An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in architecture.
We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with non-standard qualifications, who can demonstrate a high level of design ability and relevant knowledge from work experience.
As part of the application process you are required to submit a portfolio demonstrating your design ability and creative flair.
The portfolio should contain images from a variety of projects using a range of different media. It is important to provide some explanatory text alongside images but please keep this to a minimum.
Portfolios should be:
Applicants should be aware that portfolios will not be returned after review.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5, TOEFL 90 (Internet-based) or equivalent.
Our INTO Newcastle University Centre can provide extra tuition to help you meet the University's English language requirements.
The UK Border Agency (UKBA) has rules for international students regarding minimum English language requirements.
