Postgraduate Courses

The School of Architecture provides the compulsory courses defined in the syllabus for doctoral students in Architecture, as well as a number of elective courses. Doctoral students at the School of Architecture can also take courses at other departments or other universities, after agreement between the student an the supervisor. There are both courses that are run on a regular basis, and specific courses that are run once or twice as situation provides.


Other PhD Courses

Please see the National Research School ' Resarc ' for additional courses and information.

For doctoral students in the Doctoral Programme in Architecture there are six compulsory courses, including the specialization-specific course. In addition, elective courses will be given, often in connection to the theory courses on the Masters' Level. Doctoral students can follow courses at other institutions or universities.

It is also possible to have individually tailored courses (individual course: literature studies; individual course: project work; seminar course: contemporary architecture research). These are of flexible length and are defined in discussion between the doctoral student and the supervisor.
