If you are a dedicated learner and aspire to be an innovator in the practice of architecture, this five‑year double degree will help you to realise your ambitions.
This double degree combines the undergraduate Bachelor of Design in Architecture (BDesArch) with the postgraduate Master of Architecture (MArch). You will additionally attain undergraduate Honours, which otherwise requires an additional full year of study.
As a graduate, you will be highly regarded in the architectural profession for your rigorous, critical thought, and for your creativity. The double degree advances these attributes, and further empowers you to become a leader in your profession. You will master the array of skills required in current architectural practice, and just as importantly, the research focus of the embedded Honours component will equip you with the intellectual rigour and dexterity to challenge current orthodoxy and drive the profession forward in innovative ways.
Future career pathways for graduates could include employment in world renowned architectural practices, related built environment sectors or academia and research.
Becoming a registered architect will open the world to you as the work of architects is no longer confined by geography. As a graduate, opportunities lie both within Australia and overseas, with a number of our past students having great successes internationally. By engaging with the environment, community and needs of clients and stakeholders, work as an architect can have a profound effect on people’s lives around the world.
When you graduate from this program, you will be entitled to registration as an architect under the Architects Act 1921 (NSW), subject to obtaining two years of approved practical experience, at least 12 months of which must be subsequent to graduation, and passing an architectural practice examination before registration.
As a student, you are eligible for student membership of the Australian Institute of Architects. Here you will receive each issue of Architecture Australia, the New South Wales chapter Bulletin, and the AIA News. You may also attend Institute functions.
