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 at ARCHIP aims to form students into multi-potential professionals in the field of architecture who are best positioned to go on to apply and develop their talents in a range of professional evolving workplace and to emerging trends in the field and the wider world.
Architectural Design is the cornerstone of our graduate programme. In Architectural Design, the students, under tutelage of their tutors, who are themselves practising architects, work 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. 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. Our graduate students receive training in methods of communication with both private and public investors, consultants and stakeholders.
All courses included in the programme Architecture and Urbanism are compulsory. As many as a 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.
