What makes Sheffield School of Architecture unique?

Not all schools of architecture are the same, and each school has its own agenda.

You will be encouraged to explore different ways of learning and be offered opportunities to develop your own tools for learning through research and inquiry. We seek to offer a broad educational experience that gives you space to form your own opinions about architecture – we do not have a ‘Sheffield style’.

At Sheffield we have some key principles that define the School, in particular: an ethos of social responsibility and environmental sustainability; an expectation that we will all question and critically reflect on our own work; an expectation that we will all question and critically reflect on the practice of architecture now and in the future; that we will continue to develop leading ideas in the theory and practice of architectural education.

SSoA strives to be an ethically driven school and we constantly ask ourselves and our students to question what this means.
