    Dr Ana Abalos-Ramos says

    Spanish architecture enjoys great prestige worldwide thanks to the fact that training here integrates both its most artistic and technical aspects. Both complement each other perfectly in our school since the future architect will receive training in which all subjects are integrated from the first year, coming to understand what it means and what the role of an architect is today from the first minute.

    The quality of life that can be enjoyed in a Mediterranean country is well known - its climate, its history, its culture, its food… In addition, Valencia is a particularly interesting place at this time since it is a city medium in size, cosmopolitan, overlooking the sea, and where life is very comfortable.

    It should also be noted that Valencia, given its deep-rooted artistic and creative character, has been chosen as the World Design Capital in 2022, and, for this reason, a number of events are being scheduled that will put the focus even more on Valencia.

    Architecture has been in charge of facilitating and improving our living conditions throughout history, both in cities and in the countryside. At a time of paradigm shift like the current one, this work becomes even more relevant, how should we inhabit the planet in a sustainable and respectful way? How can we integrate architecture and nature? How can we improve living conditions? Should cities continue to grow?

    Our degree faces all these challenges by contributing different points of view from different professionals and from different countries. For this reason, every year we connect with a different country and with a reference study linked to this destination that will help us understand what architecture is like and what challenges it poses in different places. After these years of training with an expanded vision, the student will be preparing to work with solvency and give answers anywhere in the world.

    Being an architect prepares you to contribute to society from very varied and different areas that you will discover throughout your training: landscape, building, urban planning, advice to public or private institutions, interior design, structural calculation, architectural visualization, architectural criticism, etc.

    The comprehensively trained architect will be prepared for all of this and, what is more important, will be able to assess it at every moment to make the most appropriate decision.

    I am studying Architecture and I really like my courses. the Professors are super friendly and always there for you what ever you need. Some of them are architects themselves, so they give you also a different perspective in teaching. However, I think some courses should be more elaborated, others should have some introduction courses and others should be completely removed. But as an overall I think it is fine. The tuition fees are a bit high specially for me because I come from a country where the economy is in crises now and the rate of the money there is losing its value so this is not helping me. Workload of studies is fine if you don't over accumulate. Staying up some nights late to work is normal for a student studying architecture after all.

    Architecture: lectures and lecturers are very hands on especially adapting to the current pandemic. They are easily accessible and help when it comes to doubts. The course structure is well planned although some subjects in second year could’ve been merged. Tuition can become quite expensive especially for international students however they do offer matrículas in each subject. Workload is reasonable. Overall the quality of the program is great as many lectures really want students to understand the work rather than to just do it to pass it.

    I study architecture. Awesome professors, very helpful, very personal. The course is also very well structured, however does require quite a high level of self motivation as professors are not too pushy. The workload is manageable if one is a diligent worker. When on top of things there is plenty of free time too. Those looking for big lecture rooms and huge classes should not apply to this program. The architecture building is very disconnected from the main campus so be prepared to make social connections outside of the faculty as there are not many candidates to choose from otherwise.
