2. How long does studying architecture and urbanism take?
Architecture is a single master’s study programme that lasts 5 years. Once you have successfully completed your studies and defended your master’s thesis, you will receive the title “Master of Architecture”, i.e., “magister inženir arhitekture” (male) or “magistrica inženirka arhitekture” (female).
The urbanism programme is divided into two Bologna cycles. The first-cycle university programme lasts 3 years, and after completing your thesis, you will receive the title of “Bachelor of Architecture and Urbanism”, i.e. “diplomirani inženir arhitekt urbanist” (male) or “diplomirana inženirka arhitektka urbanistka” (female). The second-cycle master’s study programme takes an additional 2 years, and after successfully defending your master’s thesis, you will receive the title “Master of Architecture and Urbanism”, i.e. “magister inženir arhitekt urbanist (UN)” (male) or “magistrica inženirka arhitektka urbanistka (UN)” (female).
Transferring between the two programmes is possible. Students may transfer between programmes by passing differential exams. It is also possible to enrol in the second cycle of urbanism studies after completing the first cycle of any other Bologna programme.
UL FA also offers existing graduates an opportunity to further develop their education. You may continue your in-depth research on topics from the fields of architecture and urbanism by pursuing a doctoral degree.
