Postgraduate study

We are proud of the supportive postgraduate community in our school and our university. Our students are studying a rich and diverse range of subjects from sustainable design to data analysis, contributing solutions, working collaboratively and creatively, and making a difference to society on a local and global scale.

Postgraduate study is an opportunity to build on your undergraduate degree and your career, study at an advanced level, and become an expert in your discipline.

Some careers require a very specific route to professional practice. To be able to register as an architect you need to complete three stages of your studies: RIBA parts 1, 2 and 3. On successful completion of your Architecture BA(Hons) degree you are awarded RIBA Part 1. This enables you to progress to the RIBA Part 2, our MArch course, at postgraduate level which you can also study with us at Brighton, continuing on your path to becoming a qualified architect.

Our MRes degrees are based on a significant research component supported by taught modules. They provide the perfect stepping stone between undergraduate and PhD level study if you are thinking about an academic career in an area of your undergraduate degree that really inspired you.

You can also meet our lecturers and researchers at one of our postgraduate open evenings and events. It’s a great way to explore your future study options.
