*Architecture students are encouraged to compose their curriculum by choosing additional study courses from the Creative and Business programmes.

The curriculum aims to integrate the knowledge of all these diverse, yet complementing domains. The main aspiration is to provide students with the ability of analytical thinking and problem solving: granting the knowledge, intellectual capacity and practical skills of interrelating apparently separate domains of the architectural realm of theory and practice.
The successive years of the curriculum are built up on one another in Architectural Design studies. Each academic year the curriculum aims to explore consequently more complex issues and scales of design problems as such:

- Principles of Design
- Private Space and Dwelling
- Public Space and Place-making
- Urban Space and Urban regeneration
