Amsterdam University of the Arts (AUA), Amsterdam Academy of Architecture (AAA)
The Amsterdam Academy of Architecture is part of the Amsterdam University of the Arts (AUA) and offers three masters: landscape architecture, urbanism and architecure. The academy prepares students to practise spatial design as a discipline at the interface between fine art, building technology, civil engineering and landscape architecture at a master level. The combination of study and practical experience has been a traditional feature of the Academy of Architecture since its foundation in 1908. Study and work complement one another to form a full-time vocational programme. The internal and external curricula are two relatively independent but complementary parts of the programme. The internal curriculum is particularly aimed at acquiring knowledge of the discipline of design and skill in designing. The external curriculum promotes training as a professional.
