Architecture International activities

Our international education and research partnerships aim to improve architecture and urban design in the 21st century.

Each year, we host many students from around the world who either apply to study on one of our undergraduate or postgraduate courses or who spend up to a year studying abroad on one of our student exchange programmes.

Study opportunities

There are a number of ways international students can study with us, including:

Working together

We encourage working in partnership with academics throughout the world. This can be done by:

  • setting up a joint educational partnership (eg agreements on articulation, joint courses, student exchange)
