In 2012 the UCD School of Architecture introduced a new course for advanced entry to the Masters of Architecture, to provide an opportunity to those with B.Arch (Part II accreditation) qualification or equivalent course to convert their degree to a Masters level designation. Students will join the second year of the M.Arch programme, and will be awarded up to 30 credits of Recognised Prior Learning. The main requirement will be to complete a 30-credit thesis, although additional modules, such as dissertation, may be required in some cases.
