MArchD Applied Design in Architecture ARB/RIBA Part 2
Diploma in Architecture
The Advanced Architectural Design Module represents the core of the learning experience. Project-based learning is used in a studio environment to individually and collectively explore architectural design problems. The MArch programme concludes with the Dissertation Project in which individual students work with a supervisor on projects that have developed from the work of the design studio or appropriate Special Route.
MA Development and Emergency Practice
The Centre for Development and Emergency Practice (CENDEP)'s award-winning master's degree in Development and Emergency Practice is known and respected for its practice base and strong culture of student and practitioner collaboration. The programme is offered at three levels: as postgraduate certificate (PG Cert), postgraduate diploma (PG Dip) and a masters degree (MA). Normally candidates enrol for the masters degree, but it is possible to enrol directly on the PG Cert or PG Dip, either on recommendation from the admissions tutor, or as a stopping point en route to the MA.
PG Certificate, Humanitarian Action and Conflict
The online postgraduate certificate in Humanitarian Action and Peacebuilding, offered by the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice (CENDEP) is aimed at experienced practitioners, whether currently in the field or between missions, who wish to improve their understanding and competencies, develop new skills and reflect on their practices. Open to those with an undergraduate degree in any relevant discipline, and substantial and proven professional experience in the field of humanitarian action, or to those with no previous degree but extensive experience in humanitarian action or related fields.
PGCert Shelter after Disaster
While shelter after disaster has been a recognised field of work for at least thirty years, the systems and approaches for successful shelter delivery are far from clear. With a bewildering range of actors and contested debate over the best approaches, achieving equitable, sustainable and effective shelter after disaster can be complex and too often goes wrong. To these ends the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice's (CENDEP) approach to shelter after disaster is to learn from practice about what works best.
