It will develop the creativity and critical thinking skills that will enable you to engage with local and global communities and push the boundaries of architecture and the built environment

This course is built around features unique to our University. Design studios focus on our island home, which provides natural and heritage environments and the people that allow for detailed studies and real impact.  

Our curriculum centres on a Learning-By-Making practice that has characterised the University’s architectural programs for over 25 years. 

Accessible studio spaces and workshops allow for experimentation and play, and our size fosters a spirit of camaraderie.

The Bachelor of Architecture and Built Environments from University of Tasmania  is holistic in its approach, integrating histories and theories, construction techniques and building performance, professional and ethical studies, and design research and communication into project-based units. You will develop participatory skills and learning methods invaluable for design practice.


Architecture and its cognate fields are in a state of continuous evolution. The Bachelor of Architecture & Built Environments will provide multi- and interdisciplinary frameworks allowing for agility in this ever-changing landscape, as well as work-ready skills demanded by employers, including evidence-based problem solving, critical thinking, effective communication and time management. 

By undertaking community-engaged, hands-on projects, you can graduate with a portfolio of your own work, created in consultation with real clients.
