Call for Design Studio Tutors and Practice Links Visitors

We are inviting expressions of interest for Studio Tutors in BSc Architecture years 1 and 2 (RIBA Part 1), MA in Urban Design and Practice Links Visitors for the Master of Architecture (MArch RIBA Part 2).

BSc Architecture (years 1 and 2) and MA in Urban Design (MA UD)

The studios in BSc years 1 and 2 run from October to Easter, and in MA UD from October to September. We have weekly tutorials either in small groups or with individuals, allowing time and space for students to develop and test intellectual ideas through design.

The design module leader sets the teaching methods and briefs. They are supported by external practitioners to work and advise students within the given framework.

Each BSc studio will typically have 12 students. At levels 1 and 2, students are required to respond to a given brief that has been set to encourage specific aspects of knowing, being and acting that will contribute to student development within the curriculum. The brief will prescribe a geographical location as well as a clear theme and programme.

Practice Links Visitors: Master of Architecture (MArch)

As the projects develop across years, the students and tutors will develop and diversify their approach to this framework informed by the School’s focus areas within the following Research and Scholarship Groups:

  • urbanism
  • energy, environment and people
  • design, construction and making
  • computational methods
  • humanities
  • heritage and conservation.

We invite you to embrace these areas in a broad sense and you should look to include a variety of interpretations and approaches.


The resulting outcomes should meet the school learning outcomes that are aligned to criteria set by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB) for Parts I and II respectively.

Expressions of interest

Expressions of interest are invited from practitioners and academics who have an established record of design at a high level evidenced, for example, by completed projects in practice, past design studios, publications and/or awards. Candidates need to be able to teach design from a well-defined and knowledgeable agenda in relation to contemporary architectural design that aligns to specified learning outcomes.
