The M.Arch. degree programme in Architectural Design will be the second-tier qualification, superseding the 1-year Diploma in Design Foundation Studies and the 3-year B.Sc. (Hons) in Built Environment Studies, that will prepare you for an EU accredited warrant to pursue a career as an Architect. The course structure conforms to the Bologna Process, as the complementary programmes taken as a whole are informed by the requirements of Article 46 of the DIRECTIVE 2005/36/EC OF THE EU On the Training of Architects
As a graduate in the M.Arch degree, you will satisfy the academic requirements for achieving a professional status in Malta, and following inclusion in the appropriate annex in DIRECTIVE 2005/36/EC, for the title of Architect at European level. If you are considering an academic profession, or are interested in furthering your studies for a more holistic understanding of the subject, then we would encourage you to enrol into a doctorate course.
