The RIBA Yorkshire Student Awards are delivered to celebrate the talent of architecture students in the region and to reward them in the pursuit of excellence in the study of architecture.


Schemes submitted for the Student Awards must be designed by students from schools of architecture with RIBA validated and candidate courses in the Yorkshire and Humber region. Each school is asked to submit up to two Part 1 design projects and if they have a Masters or Diploma Course, up to two Part 2 design projects also. The students to be put forward to the awards are selected by their tutors.

Award Categories

There are two entry classes, Part 1 and Part 2.  Entries will be judged within their appropriate class. Three awards – Bronze, Silver and Gold will be presented in each entry class. A Presentation Prize will also be awarded in each entry class to highlight the importance of visual presentation.

Leeds Beckett University

Sheffield Hallam University

University of Sheffield

University of Huddersfield (did not submit part 2 students in 2016)
