Studying at the School of Architecture
As a society, we stand in the midst of a global crisis. The environment is changing rapidly due to Anthropocene effects such as rising temperatures and sea levels. However, there is now a global consensus on sustainable and people-friendly housing environments, in which high-quality architecture plays an important role. This increases the demand for skilled architects with modern training and an understanding of the major importance of environmental issues.
The School of Architecture at Lund University produces creative architects with the ability to identify and address problems within the field of architecture, infrastructure and sustainable design. Our teachers are very often professionally active outside the University, and we are proud to be home to many internationally prominent architects. The most outstanding aspect of the School of Architecture is its international contacts. Leading architects and urban designers from all over the world regularly visit as guest lecturers. We have students from all corners of the world, giving greater breadth and new perspectives to our programmes. Students are constantly encouraged to think outside the box to come up with fresh and ecological ideas. Our programmes are both artistic and academic, and provide comprehensive training in dealing with spatial design problems and theoretical issues.

In addition to each student having their own working area with adjustable tables, they have access to school provided computers within the design studios and computer labs.
