Architecture at the University of Newcastle is different. Our program is grounded and future-focused, shaping students who care for country, who are motivated by social and ecological issues, and who explore their potential as agents for change.
Our students develop a broad range of skills actively through design projects.

We are committed to developing the best learning experience for our unique student cohort and working collectively to create a vibrant and engaged design community that centres on our Architectural Design Studio, Workshop, and Makerspace.
We are focused on creating inquisitive, agile, and skilled graduates, confident to play key roles in transforming the architectural field you will enter. To reflect the diverse forms of practice architects are now engaged in, our program is designed to help you become the architect you want to be. You will participate in a range of projects, both guided and self-directed, with the option to pursue a year-long, final project of your own conception.
