Course summary

Innovative building design is driving the inspirational environments of the future. By bringing together architecture and engineering, the next generation of architects can ensure that today’s emerging issues – environmental impact and sustainability – are also addressed as we push the boundaries of design and reimagine the buildings of the tomorrow. Our Architecture degree is innovative and groundbreaking, giving professional qualifications in three different disciplines: Architecture, Structures and Building Physics. The University of Leeds is the first and only institution in the UK to offer this range of integrated learning, recognised by professional bodies. Studying architecture at Leeds gives you a critical understanding of how science, the arts and society come together through creative building design projects. You’ll develop a scientific and creative approach to building design, supported by learning in architectural history and theory, urban design, structures, construction, materials and building physics. You’ll build in-depth knowledge of architectural principles as well as applied science and technology, exploring creative design issues through drawings and models, developing presentation and computer modelling skills using industry-standard software. Our accredited degree develops architects who actively contribute to sustainable and economic growth whilst maintaining the highest ethical standards and delivering the infrastructure we all rely on in everyday life. This is a practical course, so you’ll have access to a range of specialist facilities. You can make the most of our flexible design studio space which will be a base for you to learn and study, with specialist model-making facilities to support your design projects. Why study at Leeds
