Aarhus School of Architecture
The University at Buffalo School of Architecture and Planning, and the Aarhus School of Architecture (Arkitektskolen i Aarhus) have a formal agreement outlining an exchange program for students and faculty. The Aarhus School of Architecture, established in 1965, offers an international master in architecture as a supplement to Bachelor and Master’s degree programs taught in Danish. The school has been instrumental in creating Aarhus’ reputation as an international city of design and architecture. With 142 architectural practices Aarhus is the city in the world with the highest density of design and architecture companies, most of these companies, many of which have achieved international success, have their roots in the school.
Students may attend classes and studio for one semester or one year abroad in Aarhus. Individual courses of study are developed by faculty advisors at both institutions. Students participate in the daily activities of one of the ongoing studios in Aarhus. Fluency in Danish is not required.
Aarhus School of Architecture is a youthful institute of education - dynamic and flexible. The school keeps up with the times and rapidly assimilates new professional development tendencies. Students and teachers exchange and discuss ideas and suggest solutions in an open study environment. Day-to-day studies take place in the school's drawing offices (studios) and are supplemented with introductions, lectures, project presentations and critique. Teaching is combined with study trips to see exciting works of architecture around the world.
Housing is available for students in the largest dormitory in Aarhus called “Skjoldhøjkollegiet.” This dormitory is nearby to the city center and can be reached by several bus lines. Buses also run frequently from the dormitory to local shops and businesses. A small convenience store and gym are located at “Skjoldhøjkollegiet” at the disposal of all residents. For more information visit the housing information website.
