Liverpool School of Architecture

The Liverpool School of Architecture at the University of Liverpool was established in 1894, and was the first UK university to award a RIBA-accredited degree in Architecture. Today, we are ranked 9th in the UK for our research, with 40% of publications rated as being of ‘world-leading’ quality (REF 2014).  

As one of the UK's premier centres for architectural research and education, we are proud of our long tradition and position in the world of Architecture, both nationally and internationally. Over the years, we have produced six RIBA Gold Medal award winners.

Masters Degrees 
Reflecting the broad spectrum of our expertise, we offer a number of specialist Masters programmes, including the MArch leading to a RIBA Part II award:

The port city of Liverpool is world-famous for its impressive architectural heritage and award-winning contemporary architecture, which includes the 2014 Stirling Prize winner, the Everyman Theatre. With its blend of modern and traditional designs – and the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the waterfront – Liverpool provides an excellent and inspiring backdrop for both research and teaching on the design of cities and evolving urban conditions.  

Research Excellence 
In the most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), we were ranked 9th in the UK – the highest ranked department submitted solely as a School of Architecture. Our research strengths span the humanities, science and engineering, and our research activity falls into two overarching categories:
