The Melbourne School of Design co-branded with the University of Melbourne Logo


The Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning, host to the Bachelor of Design, Bachelor of Environments and the Melbourne School of Design, is a vibrant community of staff and students whose interest and expertise focuses on the built environment.

We have a lively culture of exploration manifested in many forms, from lecture hall and studio to research enquiry, complemented by lectures, forums and exhibitions.  Our cultural diversity is one of our strengths: students and staff have come to Melbourne from over 40 countries. We have a strong alumni body holding leadership roles across Australia and the world.

Our teaching spans the disciplines of architecture, landscape architecture, property, construction and urban design and planning. Through these, you are equipped to support leaders in their fields in developing, governing and realising the future world or you can proceed to graduate education in your chosen field by progressing to graduate studies in the Melbourne School of Design and on to further research programs.

While studying for your professional qualification, you will establish valuable connections with future leaders in related professions and take part in field trips which examine the global context of habitable environments.  You will leave the University of Melbourne ready to take on significant responsibility and with the capacity to take up positions of leadership.
