What's On

Master of Architecture

Curtin University

About the Course

The Master of Architecture progresses the learning from an undergraduate Architectural Science degree providing a further two years of advanced studies in design project work, architectural history, theory and research, management, law and professional practice.

Students are involved in advanced design projects, analysing urban contexts and considering urban design and place making. Students will also develop research knowledge and skills before completing their own individual dissertation in architectural design.

Course requirements

To qualify for the Master of Architecture students must complete 14 core units (including 13 single units and 1 triple unit).


Entry to the Master of Architecture is via OUA applications to Curtin University. Specifically, applicants require a Bachelor of Applied Science (Architectural Science), or equivalent qualification. Entry to the course is competitive and a high semester weighted average is required. Students with a Bachelor's degree from a non-AACA accredited architecture program are required to submit a folio at the time of application. Please also note that the undergraduate degree must have been taught in English.

Students are required to submit an academic transcript showing full results including grade and mark for their undergraduate third year.

English Language Proficiency Requirements

Applicants need to meet Curtin’s English Language requirement as all courses are taught in English. If your education qualifications were not solely in English, as per the International Handbook of Universities or the World Higher Education database, please attach a scanned original copy of English Proficiency Test results. Admission requires an overall International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic) (or equivalent test) score of at least 6.5 and competence in all test components (IELTS score of 6.0).
