The Leeds School of Architecture was established in the early 1900s and continues a strong and rich historical legacy of the finest in architectural and landscape education. It operates within the School of Art, Architecture & Design at Leeds Beckett University and continues to go from strength to strength. The school provides an ideal environment for the development of critical and collaborative practices in architecture.
Based in the award-winning Broadcasting Place, the school prides itself on providing an environment in which its students and professionals can work together and learn from one another. The school delivers a variety of courses that are professionally accredited or approved by the Architects Registration Board, Royal Institute of British Architects, Commonwealth Association of Architects, Landscape Institute and the Royal Town Planning Institution.
Courses at the school offer a broad undergraduate architectural or landscape education to professional qualifications enabling professional registration or licensure in the UK, and other jurisdictions. It also offers further postgraduate and research study opportunities, supported by the collective expertise of the Architecture & Landscape Research @ Leeds, the research group within the Leeds School of Architecture.
Our programmes recognise the challenges of designing for diverse communities and cultures in a globalised world where there are modernising threats to traditional cultures, complexities in generating sustainable environments and where there is dominance of technological and commercial rationality in modern life. Currency in our teaching studios are reinforced by the topical research of academic staff, and the contributions of top professionals who influence and shape our designed environments.
