Where is the Faculty of Architecture located?
We are in the Wilkinson Building at 148 City Road, Darlington.
What does University study cost for local students?
Most of the students who study at the University of Sydney are Commonwealth supported. These students have most of the cost of their education paid by the government but must also contribute towards this cost themselves. Undergraduate Indicative Student Contribution Amount for a Commonwealth Supported Place is $7,412 per 1 EFTSL (nominal full time year). For more information, please see the admission page.
Do we use textbooks? What are exams and assessments like?
Yes, some subjects require a textbook, while others require course material to be purchased. The assessments are usually spread out and build up to a final major project or an exam.
What equipment do I need, what software, what peripherals?
The Faculty provides you with all the facilities you need. Software, printers & scanners are available in the labs, though you may choose to purchase software as needed.
How many hours will I be at uni a week?
What is the workload like? In first year, you’ll be spending up to 20 hours per week attending classes. The workload is spread across the semester, so it’s quite easy to keep on track.
Do I have to be good at maths?
Mathematics is assumed knowledge, but it is not a prerequisite. This means you can get into our program without studying maths but should make up the knowledge before you start. Bridging courses are run between enrolment and semester commencement. You’ll receive more information on bridging courses during enrolment.
Where can I park?
Most students come by bus or train. Many senior students and most international students live in the area. City Road has on-street parking which is subject to clearway zones at peak hour and is heavily monitored. The Seymour Centre carpark on Shepherd Street offers parking for a reasonable daily rate and is only a few minutes walk from the Faculty.
What other student facilities are nearby?
The new Sports Centre is very close to the faculty and includes an Olympic size swimming pool, tennis and squash courts and gymnasium, as well as the Co-op Bookshop, cafe and a sporting goods store.

Are there any scholarships in the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning?
