Overview

The educational concept of this Master Urbanism  program at  Fontys University of Applied Sciences is unique; education in concurrency with employment in a professional practice. 

This concurrent education offers students experience and education beyond the school curriculum, essential to their professional formation as urban designers. Additionally, the Academy itself is a laboratory for spatial assignments from real stakeholders. Our tutors are professionals from a variety of disciplines, but all with a strong relation to practice.

The studio assignments are invariably related to the complexity of contemporary societies and will engage social, cultural, political, economic and technological parameters.

What do we expect from you

Students are required to find a job in a design firm and work minimum 20 hours a week. Progress will be evaluated through a series of portfolio assessments. If you are unable to find a suitable position in an architectural firm or urban design practice, the Academy will offer alternative practice research studios, where you can engage in practical work for a diverse range of clients.
