Programme information

The first three semesters of the Master programme will consist of a design course (15 ECTS), two theoretical courses (2 x 5 ECTS) and one elective (5 ECTS). The last semester before graduation is almost entirely dedicated to the Master Dissertation (30 ECTS).

Design studios

The design courses offer a wide variety of studios from which students can choose freely. Students may also follow studios on the other campus. The design studios are are the core of the programme and provide an interactive and open design environment that accommodates students from around the world.

The design studio landscape is constructed out of 4(+1) engagementsUrban Cultures, Craftsmanship, Legacy, Mediating Tactics and the Brussels Way. These engagements are organised across our two campuses.

  • Click here for more info on the design studios. Examples of studios from the 2018-2019 programme will be made available soon. 

Theoretical courses

The theoretical courses have a thematic focus on each campus (in Brussels on Urban Projects, Urban Cultures and in Ghent on Resilient and Sustainable Strategies). The theoretical courses are compulsory for all students that enroll on a specific campus (e.g. a student enrolling in Brussels follows all theoretical courses on that campus).
