MSA Stage 4

Bourdon Building, 40 students

This programme is ARB/RIBA Part 2 Accredited. The programme is designed to provide the necessary educational framework for students who intend to enter the architectural profession, and confers exemption from Part 2 of the Examination in Architecture ARB/RIBA. It offers an intensive training in the forces acting on building, and the specific skills of being an architect. Project based it centres on contemporary issues of urban building, the work ranging from live projects and sponsored research to competitions and theoretical studies.

This year’s Stage 4 students have focused their project work on the city of Glasgow. Their work looks at different parts of the city, thinking about communities in the city and their needs. The projects range from housing to community projects and spaces, and the social and environmental needs of people in communities across Glasgow.
