PROFILE OF NEW STUDENTS

To define the ideal profile of new students who wish to be accepted onto this degree, we consider the final educational objectives that we aim to achieve, in three aspects:

  • Students. They must have balanced training in all disciplines inherent to studying architecture, both technical and humanistic. In terms of attitude, they must be willing to strive, both individually and as part of a team, to carry out different projects that are central to the training of architects. Therefore, in the selection process, we focus on the candidate’s motivation and abilities in relation to the above requirements. Other attitudes such as initiative, creativity, responsibility or organization and planning skills are also important.
  • Future professionals. At the end of this degree, students should be future professionals with solid technological, humanistic and artistic skills and an ability to merge them appropriately in their professional development. In addition, proficiency in another modern language such as English is a key factor for their mobility and incorporation into professional international forums. Throughout the degree, students are also provided with the keys to carry out this profession independently, fostering fundamental attitudes such as entrepreneurship.
  • Training. With the aim of the future integration of the student into working life, the degree is the result of comprehensive training. This means that, in addition to being theory-based and systematic, it is also practical and engaging.
