Spend more time in the studio. At UON more than half of your units of study are dedicated to architecture studio work, working on a range of practical and often ‘live’ projects – from houses to public buildings. You’ll analyse and research our city environments and natural landscapes, prepare your design proposals as drawings and models, then discuss and present your ideas in small groups with dedicated staff. You’ll learn about:

  • the architectural site as landscape
  • clients and their architectural briefs
  • construction and detailing of buildings
  • sustainable design practices
  • communication in the built environment
  • construction technology
  • construction ecology
  • architectural history: aesthetics, composition and proportion
  • digital and parametric design processes
  • making conceptual and realistic models in our workshop
  • history and theory in the built environment

Engage in live projects with NSW Urban Growth and Renew Newcastle through hands-on projects and public exhibitions. Collaborate with organisations like Healthabitat, improving the housing and health of disadvantaged people, in remote Australia and developing countries such as Nepal, Indonesia, PNG and Bangladesh.

Exhibit your work publicly at our graduate exhibition, giving you the opportunity to showcase your work to industry and the local community.

Qualify as a professional architect - the UON architecture program consists of the three year Bachelor of Design (Architecture), a pathway to the two year Master of Architecture where you become eligible for registration as an architect.
