University of Newcastle

Newcastle , New South Wales ,Australia

Bachelor of Design (Architecture)

Quietly change the world.

Our design students learn about more than the art, technology and business of architecture - we challenge them to think laterally and explore their potential as agents for change. University of Newcastle architects don't just learn to design and shape the physical spaces of our cities and buildings; they study how to use architecture to stimulate the places we live and work, engage the community and improve our world.

Once a heavy industry hub, Newcastle is shifting into a creative innovation centre, offering a unique space for resourceful, transformative architectural practice. Through live projects in our city and beyond, you’ll develop design principles that emphasise social, economic and environmental sustainability. You’ll invest time in developing a deep understanding of each site you work on. You will become a consultative problem solver, remaining engaged with our challenging future, learning how to develop human and purposeful architecture.
