Sheffield University Architecture
The modules listed below are examples from the last academic year. There may be some changes before you start your course. For the very latest module information, check with the department direct.
The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers.
In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption.

Come to Sheffield and join some of the best architecture students in the UK - they win prizes in national and international competitions. Our students have been successful at the RIBA Yorkshire Awards and Global Architecture Graduate Awards, been named as 'Ones to Watch' by the Design Council and won RIBA President's Medals. Our teaching staff are doing world-class research, helping to make the school a leader in our field across the UK and internationally.
We believe in architecture that improves people's lives. Through our teaching and research, we explore the social and environmental implications of architecture. Our students work on live projects as part of their course - building real projects for real communities.
We encourage you to explore ideas and collaborate with other students. Through group tutorials and peer review you'll learn how to express your opinions, and value the opinions of others. Sheffield has a strong studio culture. It's the perfect place to develop your personality as a designer.
