Advertise a job to our students and alumni
We can help you with your recruitment by sharing details of any vacancies you may have with current students and our network of graduates.
Manchester School of Architecture uses the Manchester Metropolitan University My Career Hub online system for job adverts. This is a free service.
Employers register, create a profile on the system, and then add vacancy details.
These are then quality checked by the Manchester Met TalentMatch team before going live on the system for students, graduates, and staff to view. It streamlines the process and means you can keep adding any new vacancies that arise.
If you run into any problems, then please email email@example.com for support.
Once the jobs details are live on the system, we will also promote them via the architecture student’s online resource space.
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.
We welcome practitioners to join us in-person or online, depending on your preference.
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.
Get involved with a Careers panel event
Each academic year we hold industry panel events. We are keen to include practices of all sizes and practitioners of all kinds from Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urbanism, Heritage and Conservation.
If you have an interest in presenting work, a topic, or being part of a panel of industry experts to inspire and guide our students, then please fill in our 2 minute survey and we will be in touch.
Take part in our Career Readiness Events across April, May and June
Every year we provide a series of Career Readiness events for our students and upcoming graduates. We are keen to include practices of all sizes and practitioners of all kinds – from Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urbanism, Heritage and Conservation.
If you have an interest in representing your practice to graduates, presenting work or a topic, or being part of a panel of industry experts to inspire and guide our students, then please fill in our 2 minute survey and we will be in touch.
PREP (Preparation for Practice) + PREP Summer
PREP (Preparation for Practice) events provide students with some insight into professional practice. At every PREP event, two architects present a short, 15-20min talk about a Practice Problem on the Drawing Board – perhaps something happening in the studio/practice at the moment, maybe a redesign because the scope of the project has changed, a cost engineering exercise, or a delay on site/in planning. This is followed by a stimulating Q&A discussion with students from across the school.
PREP Summer. Across June and July we support follow-up PREP sessions where the practitioners that presented in Careers Week can engage with a smaller group of students to discuss some practice-based problems that might arise on a single project. These scenarios and situations will be prepared by MSA to simulate those one might come across in everyday practice if they were working in an office environment. The aim is to provide a point for discussion in a manner similar to what might happen in a practice when a situation arises and personnel in the office or team discuss how they might/should respond. There will not necessarily be a single ‘right answer’ to the problem posed and no submission or assessment is required!
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.
