Before 2008 in Australia, registration as an architect was based on a Bachelor of Architecture, which at many universities was undertaken as a 3+2 double bachelor program. After 2008, registration as an architect in Australia required a Master of Architecture. The Master of Architecture has only been available in Australian from 2008. This Masters program of study provides Bachelor of Architecture graduates with a pathway to the Masters level qualification by completing a maximum of 80 units of study.
This program will be offered online through GradSchool.com. The focus of the program is case based and draws on the expertise and experiences of the presenters within the program. Newcastle offers a unique approach of online technologies with industry involvement.
This Program provides the opportunity for graduates of 5 year architecture programs who still hold the Bachelor level to upgrade to a Masters level.
A Bachelor degree (or approved equivalent), involving five years of study in Architecture.
