Bachelor of Architectural Studies

Victoria University of Wellington

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate

The cross-disciplinary nature of the BAS degree means that students share some of the same courses across these specialisations and gain exposure to a variety of subjects, including theory and applications, construction, structures, Pacific architecture, urban design and an introduction to practice and management. The degree will provide students with the skills, practical knowledge and theoretical approaches required in the designed environment professions. Depending on the specialisation, students will gain a thorough grounding in a range of subjects across design, technologies, management, history, environmental science, theory and urban design. This will make students well-equipped for a range of careers related to the design or building industries, or for continued study and research at postgraduate level.


The Bachelor of Architectural Studies (BAS) is a three-year undergraduate degree. A specialisation is a focus area within a degree, made up of a set of prescribed courses. Each specialisation has a number of core courses in each year of study. Normally you must successfully complete the core courses at each year level before moving to the next level.
