Architecture at Western

Join the newest School of Built Environment in the world, and make a difference while you study and contribute to the fastest growing region in Australia. Graduates of this course will benefit from the emphasis that is placed on developing mastery of architectural design not only in theory, but firmly in practice. Work on exciting studio projects in a highly entrepreneurial interdisciplinary environment, while engaging with prominent practitioners as they guide your studies. This includes former Government Architect and current Central City Commissioner Professor Peter Poulet.

Our small class sizes will ensure you get dedicated support as you complete a design-research thesis to demonstrate your ability to think independently, critically, and to resolve complex design issues. Additional studies in urban and contemporary architectural theory, building and design technology, electives, and professional practice constitute the overall degree. Learn practical technological and professional skills but also extend your creative, advocacy, environmental and social capabilities as we help you craft the beginning of your professional journey

In 2019, all studio units in this course will be offered at our new Westmead campus which will relocate and expand the Parramatta campus offerings.

    Christine Yujian Tang - China, Master of Creative Industries

    Testimonial from Christine Yujian Tang - China, Master of Creative Industries, student at Western Sydney University

    Not only did I get a feeling of what the industry, the media, the news and journalism is like, I got a taste of what that operating system is like - how to present in front of an audience and how to film it.

    Isam Al-Handola - Iraq, Master of Public Health

    Testimonial from Isam Al-Handola - Iraq, Master of Public Health, student at Western Sydney University

    I feel that I have made the best choice - especially because of the technology-infused learning. I love the way the course is taught using a multimedia approach, and that it has access to a whole online library to read material for tutorials and research assignments.
