School of Architecture

At Reading, we're training the next generation of architects. Both our undergraduate and master's courses are designed to give you the skills to excel as an architect, ready for the challenges of the twenty-first century.

industry-relevant courses

Whether you're starting out on your journey to become an architect, or building on your undergraduate studies, we have a course for you. Designed in partnership with industry, both our BSc Architecture and our Master of Architecture (MArch) courses offer focused, specialised skills and experience, taught by experienced architects and practitioners.

World-renowned research

The University of Reading is ranked 3rd in the UK for research impact in Architecture, Built Environment and Planning.  (Times Higher Education Institutions Ranked By Subject, 2014, based on its analysis of the Research Excellence Framework 2014.)

Our research-led teaching - including our work on sustainability and building information modelling (BIM) - feeds directly into our architecture courses.

Your learning will be enhanced by experienced architects, design tutors and practitioners with real-world experience.

seven-DAY access

You will have access to a dedicated individual studio work space within a newly refurbished historic building on our London Road campus, accessible seven days a week during term time. 

You will also have the opportunity to take advantage of workshops and other outstanding facilities to support your learning experience.

links to Industry

The University of Reading is internationally renowned for disciplines related to the built environment, and our links with industry are well established.

Learning alongside—and networking with—current professionals can open doors for you into industry. This could also lead to work experience opportunities to help enhance your employability.
