Architecture Tutor’s Best Advice for Succeeding in Architecture School
My University Tutor shares his best secrets for being successful in architecture school and explains what you need to do to avoid being left behind.
In today’s episode, I’m joined by the co-chair of South Australia’s Emerging Architects + Graduates Network (EmAGN), a first-year course co-ordinator at my university as well as sole practitioner – Chris Morley.
Chris’s involvement with the University has given him much experience and has allowed him to identify common habits across successful and unsuccessful students and their projects.
In this episode, he explains his journey of how he got this role immediately after graduating, and he breaks down what he’s learnt from his 10+ years of experience as a University tutor, including what makes a student stand out.

9 times out of 10, that creates the unsuccessful student.”
Architecture Tutor’s Best Advice for Succeeding in Architecture School (Questions)
Here are some of the questions I ask Chris in part 2:
What does your work with the University involve?
What are some of the common habits you’ve seen across successful students and/or projects?
What are some of the common habits you’ve seen across unsuccessful students and/or projects?
Interacting with students and young people would surely rub off on your own practice. How have you found working inside the University beneficial to your own work?
A lot of students I speak to get upset when they receive a grade lower than they expected. What advice would you give to them to ensure they continue to move forward and not let this discourage them?
