The structured Architecture - Research Opportunities programme at University of Lincoln enables students to develop the competencies required for their study and future career. Assessment is via the submission of a final thesis and, depending on the award, an accompanying written or oral testimony.

These can include cultural, social, and spatial characteristics of the built environment and communities, history and theory of architecture, urban design, environmental design, and sustainable built environments.

An experienced supervisory team is appointed to offer expertise and guidance, as well as support in applying for funding, attending conferences, and publishing work.
