Master of Architecture

Students with a completed bachelor or equivalent undergraduate education of at least three years duration in architecture may apply for admission directly into the 4th year (master's level) of the one-tier Master of Architecture programme at AHO.

The Architecture program at AHO educates leading practitioners of the discipline. The program is internationally respected and AHO is a preferred partner among the world’s leading schools. The ‘Oslo School’ represents a clear and established approach to the discipline, in which an openness to future challenges is founded upon a respect for the culture of building.

Instruction within the architecture program occurs within the studio, where an understanding of architecture is studied through project design and developed though dialog at the work table and public reviews. The program emphasizes originality, craftsmanship and the ability to communicate ideas. The program is organized around specific areas of focus that define individual viewpoints, whether through the particulars of architectonic realization, urban complexity and spatial development, theory’s critical challenge or the implicit value of the existing built environment.

During the 2 1/2 year Master's level, students compose their own educational trajectory from a range of studios and elective courses. The degree is attained though an individual diploma project. The teachning language at Master's level is English.

The first three years (foundation level) is taught in Norwegian. For information about the complete Master of Architecture (5,5 years), please see our Norwegian pages.

There is no tuition fee at AHO.
