This year we celebrate 100 years of Architecture study at the University of Huddersfield. The study of architecture in Huddersfield was formalised in 1921 by the establishment of a course in the School of Art, one of the forerunners of the present University. Degrees in Architecture have been offered since 1977 and the current pattern of education stems from the establishment of the ‘International’ course in 1989.
