Our mission at The University of Liverpool is the pursuit of excellence. The Liverpool School of Architecture was established in 1894 and became the first University in the UK to award a RIBA accredited degree in Architecture. As one of the UK's premier centres for architectural research and education, we are proud of our long tradition and position in the world of Architecture, both nationally and internationally.

As a University we have a reputation for innovation, tradition, diversity and excellence. With nearly 22,000 students, we offer more than 400 programmes ranging from established degrees leading to work in the professions, to ground breaking programmes in emerging fields of study. We welcome students from over 100 countries around the globe and currently have around 6000 international students on our degree programmes.

Our membership of the School of the Arts and wider University presents intriguing specialist opportunities, in fields such autonomous building systems, arts and building design, and climate change risk mitigation. As part of a top Russell Group University, we are strongly focused on research and have many leading architectural experts based here.


The School of Architecture offers a number of undergraduate and post RIBA Part I courses.

Our BA (Hons) Architecture (K100) programme carries RIBA Part I exemption. Our BA (Hons) Architecture: Design Studies K10D programme is a non-RIBA route that shares the first year with the RIBA Part I route (starting in level two it specialises in theories of design and visual culture).

At post RIBA Part I level our two year full time Master of Architecture, MArch (5105) course carries RIBA part II exemption whilst we have a one year full time MA in Architecture (ARTC) which is a non-RIBA taught postgraduate degree, plus a one year full time MSc in Sustainable Environmental Design in Architecture (SEDA).
