4th and 5th Years

Overall aims:
*To train independent, self-assured and highly skilled individuals who can lead and further develop architecture and global society.
*To allow the students to learn how to question, discuss and investigate; to find their own artistic voice; to develop an aesthetic and ethical approach; to develop new tools, creative methodology and communication; to develop networks and international contacts.
*To provide the degree course with an approach and emphasis which permit a wide range of opinions and attitudes – to create an environment conductive to new thoughts and discussions.
*To constantly develop the subject of architecture and its teaching aims.

Programme outline
The advanced level consists of four terms of full-time study. The focus of the programme is the Architecture Design Studio. Within the Architecture Design Studio students complete two projects per term. In addition to the Architecture Design Studio projects, students take orientation courses and attend advanced level seminars in Architectural Technology and Architectural History and Theory. The last term is dedicated to the design and development of a thesis project.
