The LSA has two fundamental objectives: to widen access and participation, supporting the greatest and most diverse talents into a career in the built environment; and to deploy design as a transformative force to enable people living in cities to experience more fulfilled and sustainable lives.

Opened in 2015, the London School of Architecture brings together academia and practice in creative partnership. Our two-year MArch in Designing Architecture (ARB/RIBA Part 2) programme is supported by over 130 practices who provide work placements. Based in London to be close to these placement providers, we recruit from across the UK and seek to enrol up to 75 diverse students per year.

We welcome applications from:

  • experienced tutors who are based in London and work across a broad range of architectural and design agendas, and who are engaged directly in designing, building, researching and publishing work.
  • early career practitioners from under-represented groups who are interested in gaining tutoring experience.

The LSA has an equal opportunities policy and seeks for its faculty to reflect its ambitions to widen access to and participation in the architectural profession.

  • subscribe to the mission for the school and be able to make a critical contribution to it: www.the-lsa.org/about/purpose/

Teaching Development Bursary

The LSA recognises that there are significant structural barriers to diversity in architectural education which are often financial. Our school is committed to establishing a diverse teaching base to support an increasingly diverse cohort of students — we aim to establish a student body that is 50% from disadvantaged neighbourhoods and 50% ethnically diverse by 2030.

To support this goal, the LSA is offering three Teaching Development Bursaries worth £1,000 each. These will be used to give educators the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of our innovative Design Think Tank teaching model and potentially explore other teaching opportunities within the school.
