Entry Requirements

Welsh School of Architecture graduates must normally have our degree of BSc in Architectural Studies with at least a 2:2 Honours classification and 55 per cent in design; or

If you are entering from another School, you would normally need at least a 2:1 class degree or equivalent qualification which carries exemption from the Part 1 of the RIBA. In all cases, a strong design portfolio is a requisite. We will consider candidates from other schools with overall classifications of 2:2 who have exceptionally strong grades in design modules at degree level (high 2:1 and above), so students who believe themselves to be in this category are welcome to apply. Applications from prospective students will not be considered until we have received both the application form and the portfolio.

For the MArch, applications should be sent directly to the School. Please contact the School for further details or in the event of any query.

How to Apply

Applications need to be made via the undergraduate programmes for Architecture page.

Tuition Fees

The MArch is as an Undergraduate programme and therefore Undergraduate fees apply. Tuition Fee information for this programme can be found on the Undergraduate web pages.
