    Programme Description

    The Manchester School of Architecture (MSA)
    was established in 1996 as the result of an innovative collaboration between the University of Manchester and the Manchester Metropolitan University - creating one of the largest architectural schools in the UK, offering considerable resources and expertise in teaching and research.

    This research is carried out mainly within the recently-established Manchester Architectural Research Centre (MARC). The centre draws upon a wide range of interdisciplinary research and teaching interests within the School of Environment and Development, the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Manchester and the Faculty of Art and Design at the Manchester Metropolitan University. Our staff possess a unique and broad range of interests and expertise across theory and design, policy and practice. For further information, please see:

    Both our postgraduate research and postgraduate taught programmes draw inspiration from our research activity and students are encouraged to actively take part in the research culture of the school. Research students have their own facilities located at the heart of the School and are centrally involved in all scholarly activities. Staff expertise is informed by the different colleges in operation, which include issues such as Bioclimatic Architecture; Continuity in Architecture; Landscape and Urbanism and Materiality and their research tends to fall within these areas. Research entails a degree of maturity and self-determination and direction over and above that needed for postgraduate taught courses.

    Our postgraduate research programme is intrinsically interdisciplinary and is open to students with an interest in any aspect of architectural research including: sustainable urbanism, urban design and development, socio-technical systems (particularly related to sustainable energy technologies), places and place-making, ecological and landscape design and the conservation and management of historic environments. We also encourage proposals for research by design.
