Global30 Architecture and Urbanism Course

Entry into the G30 Architecture and Urban course is open to talented international graduate students with a minimum of 16 years of education at academic institutions. Previous education in architecture is not required, however, it is strongly recommended.

The 24 months full-time MEng in Architecture and Urban Design Course has a taught structure over the first three semesters based on Seminar Courses and Design Studios with Workshops followed by one semester in which students develop their individual research agendas under close supervision resulting in a Design Thesis and Design Project and written Dissertation.
