Through this course you will begin to engage directly with a chosen research subject area, gather data and formulate an original approach in your practice. You will synthesise your project culminating in the production of a leading-edge proposition until you present and contextualise your thesis. This internationally based course actively disseminates students’ thesis work through conferences, exhibitions, competitions and publication. This course can be considered as partially meeting the requirements for recognition at Part 2 level (RIBA/ARB) through APEL provisions applied to individual graduates. The course is jointly accredited with the University of Manchester.
