Learning and support
Providing high-quality education
How you will learn
We know the last few months have been challenging and uncertain for us all.
Whatever happens next, you can rest assured that we'll adjust to any changes to public health guidelines while still providing a high-quality learning environment.
Details of how teaching may change can be found below.
Lectures are usually delivered to your whole cohort in person, on campus, and complemented by smaller group activities in our workshops and design studios.
Currently, all lectures are delivered live online.
They are also recorded, so you can re-watch them when it suits you.
Our teaching design studio is an important creative space where you will spend a lot of time being supported to develop your ideas.
Currently, staff and students are working safely in our studios, with all interaction through computers and relayed via a large screen.
Model making is a key part of the architectural teaching process.
We are currently offering a blend of online and in-person teaching, so students are working safely on campus in our workshops as and when required for their projects.
We’ve supplemented this with home model-making kits and online tutorials.
We have a full schedule of extra-curricular activities to inspire you and enhance your learning.
These include talks, seminars, conferences, and provocations, which are currently running online.
A space for innovation
Benefit from facilities split across two neighbouring campuses in the heart of Manchester.
Our facilities include two nationally recognised libraries and a range of workshops and material stores.
