The Master programme at ARCHIP is a two-year graduate programme taught in an interdisciplinary studio environment with a focus on practical and project-based work, incorporating all aspects of architectural practice, and in-depth understanding of the field.
The graduate programme aims to develop well-rounded professionals in the field of architecture who are best positioned to go on to apply and further expand their talents in a range of professional workplaces.
Architectural Design is the cornerstone of our graduate programme enabling the students to work closely with their tutors, who are themselves practising architects, on a specific project which incorporates various aspects of architectural practice. Urban Design teaches students the broad theoretical principles of development/life/design of a complex urban system. Further, our graduate students also receive training in methods of communication with both private and public investors, consultants and stakeholders, since an architect must be able to engage in a professional dialogue and make collective decisions with fellow architects, professionals from other fields and with the public.
All courses included in the Architecture and Urbanism Master programme are compulsory. As many as half of all study hours take form of one-on-one consultations with the tutor. Thanks to the small number of graduate students in one year (max. 30), our students benefit from an intensive and highly personalised contact with our faculty members.
The credit system and the classification scale is based on the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS), which allows for student mobility.
The instruction is organised in a simple and straightforward way; the courses are divided into study years as per a fixed framework. Standard week hour load is 20 hours and the duration of one teaching hour is 45 minutes.
