Architectural Design at Griffith University has been ranked in the world's Top 100 in the prestigious QS World University Rankings. We are ranked in the top four architecture programs in Australia for teaching quality.   


As a Griffith University student, you will have access to our wide research portfolio in environmental planning, arts and design, engineering, climate adaptation and science. 

This will give you the opportunity to expand your knowledge and skills. Our program provides graduates with knowledge and skills for the real world; practice ready, focusing on digital and green technologies, and engaged with the Asia-Pacific region.

Bachelor of Architectural Design will set you on the path to a career as an architect, as it provides a stepping stone to Griffiths Master of Architecture degree. 

Our architecture degrees are distinctive in their emphasis on environmental sustainability and urban design.  

You will combine classroom studies, studio work, fieldwork and practical experience to learn about urban systems, public places, designing buildings and all aspects of the built environment. 

You will develop your design and creative problem-solving skills, and learn how to develop designs that meet aesthetic, functional and user needs now and in the future. 

In your third year, you will get hands-on experience when you complete a supervised industry-based design project.


Griffith's Bachelor of Architectural Design will set you on the path to a career as an architect. Graduates will be eligible to apply for admission to the Master of Architecture, which provides the academic qualifications needed for accreditation as an architect.

As a graduate, you will be in high demand in Australia and overseas. With your design, technical knowledge and creative visual thinking skills, you will be qualified to assist architects and other built environment professionals in the design, documentation and procurement of buildings.

You will find employment in a broad spectrum of creative roles in government agencies, statutory bodies, design practices and studios (urban design, architecture, interior design, virtual environments, graphic design and the film and games industries), commercial development companies, building product manufacturing and distribution companies and research organisations.
