Career Progression header image

The BSc (Architectural Science) degree programme leads to the Master of Architecture (MArch) degree programme and is geared primarily towards the architectural profession. Most MArch graduates go into architectural practice or go on to further academic study in architecture or related subjects.

There are numerous options including setting up independently or working as part of a team in a small or large practice. There are also opportunities within the architectural sections of a government department or semi-state body or commercial organisations. 

Specialist areas include: design, technology, architectural conservation or project management. The skills of an architecture graduate are transferable and portable and many architects also become involved in projects or work abroad. Some architects also work in other areas such as planning, heritage site management, landscape, art and culture, or academic research and education.

After two years of approved postgraduate practical experience, holders of the Master of Architecture Degree may take the examination for the Certificate in Professional Practice and Practical Experience. Graduates who have passed this exam are entitled to exemption from the examinations in Professional Competence of the RIAI and the RIBA Part 3 and qualify for membership of these institutes.

For those who not continue with the MArch programme, the BSc qualification provides an opportunity to pursue associated professions such as landscape architecture, planning or research, and also an option to transfer into other areas of study.
