Concurrent education: study and work

The master's course Architecture at ArtEZ is what is called a concurrent educational programme. This means that the course is comprised of both study and work components. You will attend classes and study in Arnhem on Friday and in the morning on Saturday. During this time, you will get to work on the creative side of architecture: experimenting, pioneering, reflecting, and designing freely. In addition to this study component, you will also work 20 to 32 hours a week at an architectural firm. There you will be directly applying what you have learned during the course.

Learning to look at things in a different way

As a master's student in Architectureat ArtEZ, you will be challenged to work with themes such as space, material, context, and stories. You will get to work finding spatial solutions for today’s design challenges in a creative and conceptual way, all the while working out how these solutions can be put into practice. You will learn to think freely and creatively, which will enable you to look at things in a new way. During these four years, you will distinguish yourself as a capable, unique professional with the knowledge and skills to shape the relationship between people and the space around them, whether as a technical draughtsman, designer, or architect.

“This master's course doesn't push you in one specific direction, but instead helps you find a place where you can make your mark. This is because they encourage a pioneering attitude. It was precisely through experimentation that I was able to discover where my talents lie. For example, I found out that I am good at communicating designs in a way that tells a story.”
