School of Architecture

The School of Architecture at The University of Queensland offers both Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees by research. Such programs are described as Higher Degree by Research (HDR). The School has research strengths in architectural design, indigenous culture, the history and theory of architecture, and sustainable design, and invites outstanding prospective candidates in these areas.

The focus of all research degrees at The University of Queensland is on the development of students as independent researchers, making a significant, original, and comprehensive contribution to knowledge in architecture. The School of Architecture is highly selective, accepting outstanding applicants from a range of disciplinary backgrounds. While we offer relatively few places each year, we are very interested in applicants whose research interests align with ours.
