The Liverpool School of Architecture 2016

Liverpool School of Architecture’s international links stretch back to the start of the twentieth century, when we had students from Mesopotamia, Palestine, and the Malay States. After WW1 students arrived from Egypt, Iraq, India, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, amongst other countries.

During the 1930s Sir Charles Reilly established links to America. During the war we housed the Polish School of Architecture in exile. Since 2015 we have had a sister department at XJTLU in Suzhou, China with whom we exchange students. We also make student exchanges with schools in the EU and the US. Teaching staff come from the UK, China, Finland, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Korea, Portugal, Spain, and Turkey. In the light of this history we will continue to welcome staff and students from every corner of the world and celebrate their international and cultural diversity.
