Get hands-on experience

Throughout your course, you'll complete project-based architectural design units in a studio setting . You'll work on projects with a practical edge that will teach you to think about how buildings function and are constructed.

Work on real project briefs to develop your industry knowledge and practice, building an understanding of how architects work in the real world. You'll also get practical workplace experience, which will let you make important industry connections.

Graduate industry ready

Our architecture course has a strong emphasis on building practical skills, which will make sure you're ready to work in the real world. You'll also have the opportunity to get practical workplace experience, and gain academic credit for it, which will let you make important industry connections.

Our undergraduate honours degree will give you advanced knowledge and skills to benefit your professional career, or future research and study.

Focus on sustainable design concepts

Our architecture courses are increasingly recognised internationally for their focus on innovation and sustainable development in design. You'll work on understanding, developing and designing sustainable systems, and applying advanced digital design tools to bring your sustainable designs to life.

Learn from the best

You'll be taught by architects who work in the field and have years of industry experience. You'll also have opportunities to collaborate with the design community through public lectures, student-run exhibitions, and off-campus and international study tours to design capitals in Europe, America and Asia.
