Groningen Academy of Architecture’s Master’s in Architecture is an attractive and challenging programme for prospective architects. This four year programme focuses purely on design, combining academic study with work in professional practice.

On completion of your studies, you will be entitled to use the title of Master of Science. And once you have graduated, you will be able to immediately register in the Architects’ Register, which means that you will also be recognised as an architect throughout the European Union.

Students of the Academies of Architecture are exempted from the mandatory two-year professional experience period.

Programme structure

Year 1

The first year provides an introduction to the various aspects of the field. The development of creativity and analytical thinking is key, but this goes hand in hand with acquisition and development of the necessary subject-specific knowledge and skills.

Years 2 and 3

In Years 2 and 3, you will further broaden and then deepen your knowledge of architecture and other relevant fields. You will gradually be encouraged to form your own opinions on the subject/discipline and to consider the approach you would take as an architect in professional practice.

Year 4/Graduation

In the fourth year, the year in which you graduate, you will demonstrate through an individual design that you can work independently as a designer in professional practice.

Career opportunities

The significant practical experience and in-depth technical and design knowledge that you will have acquired through your studies will stand you in good stead when you graduate from the Academy as an architect. You will be immediately employable because you will already have been working in the field. But that is not all, because you will have acquired a great deal of specialist knowledge and will have a lot to offer.
