For progression from the first year to the second year of the MArch you must pass 120 credits. 240 credits are required for the award of the degree. A minimum of 160 credits must be taken in Architectural Design Studio courses. Some one year studio options may permit students to take a 20 credit course from other PGT programmes along with a 20 credit studio in either semester 1 or 2.
Students must pass Academic Portfolio 2 to achieve exemption from ARB/RIBA Part 2. Some Architectural Design Studio courses will be linked over two years (integrated pathway) and will therefore have prerequisites for entry.
All courses in the ESALA M.Arch (with the exception of Academic Portfolio 2), produce a single summative mark, produced as an average of all course learning outcome grades. Academic Portfolio 2 produces a single summative mark from grades awarded for Learning Outcomes 1 & 3 only. Learning Outcome 2 of Academic Portfolio 2 is assessed as a simple pass or fail grade. All learning outcomes for Academic Portfolio 2 must be passed to allow for the award of Master of Architecture and RIBA Part 2 exemption.
