Bachelor of Architectural Design will set you on the path to a career as an architect, as it provides a stepping stone to Griffiths Master of Architecture degree. Our architecture degrees are distinctive in their emphasis on environmental sustainability and urban design. You will combine classroom studies, studio work, fieldwork and practical experience to learn about urban systems, public places, designing buildings and all aspects of the built environment.
You will develop your design and creative problem-solving skills, and learn how to develop designs that meet aesthetic, functional and user needs now and in the future. In your third year, you will get hands-on experience when you complete a supervised industry-based design project.
Griffith University's international students receive dedicated support from their arrival in Australia through to their departure after graduation. You will be introduced to Griffith through an orientation program, and receive ongoing social, personal and academic support throughout your degree.
