Architecture Courses in New Zealand

Studying Architecture in New Zealand

Architecture courses at New Zealand universities focus on the technological, design, cultural and historical elements alongside art and 3D design, enabling all-around professional development.

To become an Architect, students must complete a combination of five years of study and two years of practical work experience before completing final exams. Students will become members of the RIAI, the Royal Institute of the Architects of New Zealand, after their initial three-year undergraduate degree, before enrolling on a BArch, Diploma or March degree. Another two years of professional training follow prior to your final exams.

After completing the minimum five years of study required to become a registered architect, graduates will find roles in architectural design, engineering and construction, preservation and urban planning.

Architecture Entry Requirements

Entry requirements vary for each New Zealand university, but students will need an IELTS score of 6.5 overall, no lower than 6.0 in each component, and an International Baccalaureate score of 32 points with typical AAB A-level requirements.
