Portsmouth School of Architecture

International Opportunities


International exchanges, projects and collaborative opportunities are at the heart of the School of Architecture’s values.

As a school we welcome students from diverse locations around the world. Over 20% of our student body and 10% of our staff are international from around 40 countries across the world. We believe this diversity creates a vibrant and rich design community and this in turn informs how learn and teach.

International exchanges, projects and collaborative opportunities are at the heart of the School of Architecture’s values. We continually seek to create international experiences for our students to explore different cultures in response to the fast moving global world. Cultural awareness is cultural.

We have strong connections with other Schools and organisations across the world and actively promote cultural exchange. This ranges from international teaching networks supported by Erasmus and partnerships with Universities further afield to international collaborative workshop projects within the design studio.
