University for the Creative Arts

Architecture MA

Gain a deeper understanding of built and occupied space and develop an individual approach to spatial design on our MA Architecture course at UCA Canterbury.
For us, architecture is not only concerned with buildings and construction details, but also with how people perceive and understand space. On this course, you will experiment with digital and analogue designs in workshops and in-studio, increasing your specialist knowledge and improving your ability to manage and deliver projects.

Our School of Architecture maintains strong relationships with the professionals and organisations in the industry, and our course team are well-placed to provide you with industry links that could lead to further experience and career development, or higher level study.

Entry Requirements

IELTS UKVI or Academic

You can find out more about specific course entry requirements on our individual course pages of University.

Career Prospects

You'll have the opportunity to undertake individual thematic investigations, which will incorporate prototyping, experimenting, re-designing and crafting, but you will also be expected to demonstrate expert knowledge of your chosen field of interest and complete mastery of your fabricated outcomes.

At the end of the course, you'll be responsible for the design of a piece of work that will act as a unique expression of the expertise you've developed with us.

Course Details

The MA Architecture is conceived as a laboratory for spatial investigation and innovation. Design and crafting issues of fabrication, meaning, representation, new media, interaction, perception, tactility, materiality, emergent technologies and their capacity for use and misuse in modes of experiential delivery all provide contemporary theoretical themes and frameworks within the course. Students are encouraged to interrogate and extend their knowledge of spatial theory through highly experimental projects. The course utilizes the range of craft and digital workshops and laboratories available at UCA Canterbury to facilitate a methodology of extended 1:1 scale prototypes and tests, rigorously recorded, iterated and refined to develop advanced applied design research capabilities. It fosters a process of risk taking and inculcates an inherent understanding and celebration of the importance of repeated design failure in the creative process
