Apply now for Winter 2018

In 2017, the University of Luxembourg has launched a new Master’s programme to investigate the impact of globalisation on urbanisation and architecture. Architecture is a dynamic discipline that constantly has to anticipate social, political, cultural, environmental and technological changes. So while the curriculum will focus on the design studio, this will be embedded in an interdisciplinary environment encompassing complementary fields such as political economy, GIS, sustainable transport planning, regional economics and urban governance, all of which are vital in understanding our globalised society.

The design studio with its principle of “research by design and design by research” will develop projects on a large scale (semester 1), on the scale of the urban fabric (semester 2), and on the architectural scale (semester 3). Students will be introduced to tools that enable them to analyse the main challenges of our contemporary and very dynamic world, and will learn how to develop architectural and urbanistic concepts in response to these challenges.

The Greater Region of Luxembourg, whose spatial transformation is the focus of much public debate, is an exciting study field. The rapidly growing international and multilingual University of Luxembourg offers a professionally equipped environment. This international Master’s programme is geared towards students who are keen to link practice with research and architecture with urbanism, and thus with other fields of humanities.

The Master in Architecture at the University of Luxembourg invites applicants who have received a Bachelor in architecture from Universities within or outside the EU. The requirement for the Master is a three-year study programme in architecture covering in principle 180 ECTS, or equivalent. Post-graduates in architecture are welcome to apply too.

The programme has a registration fee of 500€ per semester. The language of instruction is English. The programme is full-time, two-year and starts every winter semester.
