BSc | Master of Architecture

The BSc Architecture/Master of Architecture (BSc/MArch) course at Robert Gordon University is a linked award that allows you to progress from Year 1 to Master's level continuously, and obtain a clear pathway to professional registration.

The first three years of the course will provide you with a foundation in terms of knowledge and skills in architecture, and leads to the award of BSc Architecture (with which RIBA and ARB Part 1 is awarded). The three primary components that form the backbone of the course are:  

  • Architectural Design Studio
  • Architectural History and Design Philosophy
  • Technology: Construction, Structural Design, and Environmental Design.

The final two years comprise the Master’s element of the integrated award and lead to a Master of Architecture (with which RIBA and ARB Part 2 is awarded). The MArch offers you the opportunity to develop personal interests around three thematically distinct ‘Units’ with interests in City, Place and Context. The issues of place and contextual design is played out in both urban and rural contexts, through exploration of real-world challenges facing communities in our city, immediate surroundings and further afield. It provides you with the opportunity to work in less familiar contexts that will expose you to a range of challenges relating to themes and issues of wider national and international relevance.
