At the Welsh School of Architecture, we provide a fully accredited route to becoming a professional architect in the UK. This MArch programme is the second stage (Part 2) of this route and is intended for those who wish to continue their education towards becoming a qualified architect. The course is approved by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Architects Registration Board (ARB). If you do not already have a Part 1 qualification, please take a look at our BSc Architectural Studies.

Our MArch is a two year programme which is studied on a full-time basis. It is unique in that in the first year of study, you will predominantly be based in an architectural practice, undertaking a combination of practice-based and academic work. In your second year you will be based in the Welsh School of Architecture, Bute Building.

Throughout the course, we explore the full range of skills required to be an architect and enable you to develop your personal and professional experience. To prepare you for the demands of the architectural profession, we build on and extend your existing knowledge to include the design of more complex buildings and the demands of urban design. We also study the professional and legal aspects of an architect’s work. We also encourage you to pursue knowledge in a specialist area through a written dissertation project.

Strwythur y cwrs

The first year of the MArch – the year of education in practice – is spent predominantly in architectural practice. It includes three short courses held in the School and has a modular structure of coursework.

The second year of the MArch is spent full-time in the School and takes students to an advanced level of architectural design. It offers an intense and lively forum for the exploration and discussion of issues in contemporary architecture. It involves a ‘Design Thesis’, a written dissertation and a module in practice management and economics.

Project work is a major component in the second year and includes a comprehensive design for a building or group of buildings selected by yourself and supervised by an appropriate member of staff. You will also complete a dissertation which allows you to pursue and specialise in an area of interest to you. Current areas you can choose from include architectural science and technology, history and theory of architecture, social issues in architecture, and professional and management studies.

Mae'r modiwlau a ddangosir yn esiampl o'r cwricwlwm arferol. Byddant yn cael eu hadolygu cyn blwyddyn academaidd 2023/24. Bydd y modiwlau terfynol yn cael eu cyhoeddi erbyn mis Medi 2023.

Blwyddyn un

Byddwch yn treulio'r flwyddyn gyntaf gyda chwmni pensaernïol, sydd wedi'i gymeradwyo gan yr Ysgol, ac yn ymgymryd â modiwlau astudio a dylunio o bell. Byddwch yn dychwelyd i'r Ysgol sawl gwaith ar gyfer cyrsiau byr.

Mae'r Brifysgol wedi ymrwymo i ddarparu amrywiaeth eang o opsiynau modiwl lle’n bosibl. Ond byddwch yn ymwybodol er y byddwn yn gwneud pob ymdrech i gynnig dewis, gall hyn gael ei gyfyngu mewn rhai amgylchiadau. Y rheswm am hyn yw'r ffaith mai dim ond nifer cyfyngedig o leoedd sydd ar gael ar rai modiwlau, a gaiff eu dyrannu ar sail y cyntaf i'r felin. Mae'n ofynnol i fodiwlau eraill sicrhau isafswm nifer o fyfyrwyr cyn gallu eu cynnal, er mwyn gwneud yn siŵr y gellir cyflwyno addysg o ansawdd priodol. Gall modiwlau gael eu cyfyngu oherwydd gwrthdaro yn yr amserlen hefyd, ac er bod y Brifysgol yn ymdrechu i amharu cyn lleied â phosibl ar eich dewis, byddai'n syniad da i chi ofyn am gyngor gan yr Ysgol berthnasol am y dewisiadau modiwl sydd ar gael.

Dysgu ac asesu

Sut y caf fy addysgu?

The methods of teaching we employ will vary from module to module, as appropriate depending on the subject matter and the method of assessment. We teach using a mixture of lectures, seminars, workshops, study visits, project work, and group tutorials.

In lectures and workshops we aim to make appropriate use of audio-visual support to aid learning and development of subject-specific skills. You will be given access to relevant teaching materials through the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central.

Sut y caf fy asesu?

Taught and project-based modules are assessed in a variety of different ways depending on the module content and learning outcomes (found in the module descriptions). We use class tests, course work (both written assignments and oral presentations or critical assessments/crits), and project work, or a combination of these to assess your progress on the module.

You will also be assessed on a dissertation project, which you will complete in year two. The dissertation is a written report on a piece of research which you have carried out in an agreed subject area under supervision.

Sut y caf fy nghefnogi?

During your year in practice, we will keep in regular contact with you. You will also be visited by a representative from the School.

You will have access to our bespoke Architecture Library, as well as to materials in the other Cardiff University Libraries while you study with us.

We also support students through the University’s virtual learning environment, Learning Central, where you can ask questions in a forum or find course-related documents.

Cardiff University also offers a wide range of support services which are open to our students, such as the Graduate Centre, counselling and wellbeing, financial and careers advisors, the international office and the Student Union.

Feedback

We offer written and oral feedback, depending on the coursework or assessment you have undertaken. You will usually receive your feedback from the module leader. If you have questions regarding your feedback, module leaders are usually happy to give advice and guidance on your progress.

Pa sgiliau y byddaf yn eu hymarfer a’u datblygu?

This programme is developed with a clear sense of the RIBA graduate attributes (‘level indicators’) for Part 2. In accordance with this, the Part 2 is awarded to students who have:

  • Ability to generate complex design proposals showing understanding of current architectural issues, originality in the application of subject knowledge and, where appropriate, to test new hypotheses and speculations.
  • Ability to evaluate and apply a comprehensive range of visual, oral and written media to test, analyse, critically appraise and explain design proposals.
  • Ability to evaluate materials, processes and techniques that apply to complex architectural designs and building construction, and to integrate these into practicable design proposals.
  • Critical understanding of how knowledge is advanced through research to produce clear, logically argued and original written work relating to architectural culture, theory and design.
  • Understanding of the context of the architect and the construction industry, including the architect’s role in the processes of procurement and building production, and under legislation.
  • Problem solving skills, professional judgement, and ability to take the initiative and make appropriate decisions in complex and unpredictable circumstances.
  • Ability to identify individual learning needs and understand the personal responsibility required to prepare for qualification as an architect.

Detail of the specific requirements and learning outcomes for each of the modules undertaken over the course of the master’s is provided in briefs, handbooks and module descriptors.

Students in the Master of Architecture
We encourage independent and collaborative project work in our studios, as well as peer discussion..

  • Laptop computers
  • Calculators
  • General stationery
  • Text books (assumed to be available in the library)
  • Basic copying / printing

If there are optional costs/fees to be covered by the student, these are not a requirement to pass the degree.

A fydd angen unrhyw gyfarpar penodol arnaf I astudio'r cwrs hwn?

Byddwn yn darparu unrhyw offer sy'n hanfodol i'r cwrs. Fodd bynnag, rydym yn argymell eich bod yn dod â gliniadur gyda meddalwedd priodol (e.e. prosesu geiriau), USB neu yriant caled, deunydd ysgrifennu cyffredinol a rhywfaint o offer llunio sylfaenol.

Rydym yn darparu trwyddedau i fyfyrwyr ar gyfer y rhan fwyaf o'r feddalwedd efelychu arbenigol a ddefnyddiwn ar y cwrs. Fodd bynnag, ar hyn o bryd dim ond ar gyfrifiaduron gyda system weithredu Windows y gallwn warantu y bydd y rhain yn gweithio.

Yn ystod y cwrs, bydd gennych fynediad i'r Llyfrgell Bensaernïaeth arbenigol, a llyfrgelloedd eraill y Brifysgol, a mannau astudio ar draws y campws. Yn yr Ysgol, gallwch weithio yn ein stiwdios dylunio, defnyddio ein hystafelloedd cyfrifiadura a chyfleusterau eraill sy'n cynnwys plotwyr fformat mawr, torrwr laser digidol, a gweithdy sydd yn helaeth ei offer.

Costau byw

Rydym wedi ein lleoli yn un o ddinasoedd mwyaf fforddiadwy y DU. Rhagor o wybodaeth am gostau byw yng Nghaerdydd.

Gyrfaoedd a lleoliadau gwaith

Mae’r rhan fwyaf o’n graddedigion yn mynd ymlaen i ddilyn gyrfa ym maes pensaernïaeth, ac yn gweithio mewn nifer o gwmnïau blaenllaw yn y DU a ledled y byd.

Fodd bynnag, mae’r gyrfaoedd posibl i’n graddedigion hefyd yn cynnwys dylunio trefol, addysgu ac ymchwil yn ogystal a phensaernïaeth. Ymysg cyflogwyr eraill ein graddedigion, roedd swyddfeydd penseiri, ymgynghorwyr ynni adeiladu, adrannau cynllunio trefi, cwmnïau adeiladu a rhai prifysgolion. Mae rhai graddedigion yn mynd ymlaen i wneud graddau ymchwil uwch fel MPhil neu PhD.

Ar ôl cwblhau ein MArch mewn Pensaernïaeth a chael profiad ymarferol pellach, efallai yr hoffech ymgymryd â chymhwyster Rhan 3 [dolen i PGDip/MA mewn Astudiaethau Proffesiynol os yn bosibl], a bydd cwblhau'r cwrs yn llwyddiannus yn eich galluogi i gofrestru gyda Bwrdd Cofrestru’r Penseiri (ARB) a chael defnyddio'r teitl 'pensaer' yn y DU yn sgîl hynny.

Lleoliadau

The first year of this course is spent in practice. Students are expected to find a suitable placement in an architectural practice themselves. Our students have an excellent record in obtaining placements and many of our past graduates have taken the opportunity of the year of education in practice to spend time in practice abroad. Students should keep in contact with the School during this time and we will send a representative from the School to visit you. Your placement should last for at least 9 months.
