Our goal

Our goal is to produce a universally educated graduate who has mastered the fundamentals of the architectural profession and is excellently equipped for continuing as a graduate student, or is ready to apply his or her undergraduate knowledge in a number of careers related to the field. We teach architecture as a discipline concerned with social and environmental good, sustainability and ethical responsibility. Students learn how the relationship between civilisation and architecture developed throughout history. In this respect, Prague offers a unique opportunity to explore the architectural heritage of the city and the region. We often organise field trips, and thanks to ARCHIP’s partnerships with other schools of architecture, students benefit from a wide choice of international exchanges and activities. The programme is built around the course in Architectural Design where students systematically apply their knowledge gained in other courses (History and Theory field, Construction and Technology field, Art and Presentation and others). We place a strong emphasis on presentation and professional communication skills. Guided by renowned faculty, students learn amidst a diverse international community and in a family-like atmosphere where they can explore and develop their unique creative talents and consider their next career path – they have many to choose from!
