Master’s Programme in Architecture


The Oulu School of Architecture welcomes international applicants, holding a three or four year Bachelor’s degree in architecture to apply for the 2 year, full-time Master’s Programme in Architecture, starting in September of each year. The program is instructed entirely in English and fully integrated with the domestic master level studies of the school.

The degree awarded, Master of Science in Architecture, is a professional architect’s degree, providing the qualifications to work as an architect as well as eligibility to go on to doctoral studies.

The contents of the design oriented study programme are based on the tradition and experience of teaching design closely related to architecture. The focus of studies is on studio projects, varying from larger scale public buildings to detailing - both for buildings and urban structures - with emphasis on sustainability. Additionally the lectures cover contemporary features of Finnish and Scandinavian architecture, and  latest developments in the use of building materials.

More information on the admission procedure and requirements for the  Master's programme in architecture is available on the University of Oulu degree web pages.
