"I’ve learnt all about sustainable building design, so I can really make a difference for the future of our planet. I’ve even worked on live design projects here in Leicester, too."

–Seim, Architecture student

The Leicester School of Architecture (LSA) has a 125-year history of nurturing the next generation of architects with a future-facing curriculum that focuses on the ‘craft of making’.

Architecture is not simply about a building – it’s a vehicle for changing the way we live. With us you will imagine buildings of the future that offer innovative solutions to the global climate crisis. Within an atmosphere of experimentation and open-ended enquiry, you will collaborate across disciplines and challenge convention. We will empower you to become the future change-maker the industry needs.

Employability is embedded in the curriculum and you can benefit from our excellent relationships with the industry. The award-winning Vijay Patel Building brings all our courses together to provide the space and facilities for you to flourish.
