This thesis investigates the structural evolution and assembly of galaxies since the first few billions years after the big bang. It makes use of the CANDELs and UVISTA galaxy surveys, the EAGLE hydrodynamical simulation as well as spectroscopy from XShooter on the VLT. Within this thesis I attempt to answer when stellar mass was assembled onto galaxies, where those stars were deposited as well as the physical mechanisms which underly that assembly.
