Attend an open review

In March we host our annual Open Review, where we invite professionals from across the world to review the studio projects of our final year Master of Architecture (MArch) and Masters of Landscape Architecture (MLA) students.

The Open Review is an opportunity to: influence the next generation of designers; actively contribute towards the future of the school; feed back your knowledge and experience into the education system; think deeply about the position that architecture plays within contemporary society; discuss your attitudes towards the practice; see the breadth and quality of the work that is produced in the school; and network with other practitioners.

Year 04  (Year in Practice)

The Part 1 industry experience, also known as Year 04, is an important time in many students’ architectural development, and the MSA is here to support our students through this. Alongside informing students about lecture, employability events, open review, and more, our Year 04 Lead is the main point of contact at the school for any questions regarding Year 04 and for any students returning to the MSA.

Our Year 04 Lead is in regular email correspondence with our graduate students in industry, acting as a conduit between the MSA and its Year 04 graduates in professional practice.

For further information on this service or to reach out to our Year 04 Lead, please email s.holden@mmu.ac.uk
