Entry requirements

Applicable to all candidates (including Ravensbourne alumni):

  • A 2.2 with 50% (10% above pass) minimum in the final year major design project in a first architecture degree either prescribed by ARB or similar to an ARB/RIBA Part 1 course in the case of non-ARB prescribed UK, EU and Overseas courses.
  • Graduates with non-ARB prescribed first architecture degrees who wish to register in the UK as an architect eventually would have to submit their portfolios to ARB for examination at some stage, though this is not a requirement for entry to the MArch.
  • While advisable, practical experience is not required for entry to the MArch, though applicants should note that a minimum of 24 months of logged professional experience are required to undertake Part 3 examinations and to register as an architect in the UK, of which 12 months may be completed before the completion of the MArch.

Check the portfolio requirements for the programme.
