The University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture offers comprehensive education in architecture and urban studies, promoting sharing of knowledge and development of skills required for practicing architecture within interdisciplinary environment.
All study programmes are aligned with the principles and standards of the Bologna Declaration, and accredited by the Commission for Accreditation and Quality Assurance of the National Council for Higher Education, while two study programmes are validated RIBA course status.
Studies are organized in ‘study units’ and ‘modules’, which students may choose from so as to independently create their educational profiles, and primarily based on the ‘studio-driven’ method, having in mind that students learn best by working in small, highly focused groups under a single tutor. A list of elective courses is compiled almost every academic year, with the aim to stay abreast of current trends and issues. Moreover, a number of conferences, exhibitions and guest lectures organized at the Faculty, and in cooperation with leading universities in Europe, and worldwide spread-out further enhance the teaching-learning process.
The Faculty’s good organization, tradition, and keeping-up with the trends make it a driver of changes and an institution where innovations, experiments and research take place. The Faculty is strongly devoted to establishing an academic and creative working environment that encourages professionalism and intellectual exchange of ideas and opinions.
The languages of teaching and degrees at the Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade are Serbian and English. The Faculty of Architecture in Belgrade currently offers the following programmes:
Available in Serbian!
Undergraduate studies is first-degree study programme which lasts 3 years/ 6 semesters, during which students can earn 180 ECTS and the title of Bachelor of Architecture – B.Arch.
The B.Arch degree does not lead to professional accreditation. Students also need to complete Master degree to become eligible for professional accreditation.
Undergraduate studies are the foundation of higher levels of education for architects who are upon the completion of their studies presented with an opportunity to pursue a higher degree of profession or a PhD in various fields. In this respect, these studies are conceived as comprehensive education which includes a broad set of subject related technological and social sciences, arts and humanities, and provides students with knowledge, and professional and artistic skills in the fields of architecture, urban planning and architectural technologies.
Bachelor studies also comprise a twofold practical experience: working in a Studio on specific problems and internship in one of the professional organizations outside the University.
Head of the study programme: Milena Kordić, PhD, Assistant Professor

Master studies last 2 years / 4 semesters and students can earn 120 ECTS.
We offer Master programmes in several scientific and artistic fields, providing in this way a multidisciplinary education to future architects and opportunities to create their own educational curricula. The programmes are based on the studio-driven method that emphasises teaching in a studio where students gain the necessary knowledge, skills and competencies by working on a comprehensive project individually or in a group.
Studio design consists of two parts: 1) the practical part, which includes work on a defined brief and 2) the theoretical part, which consists of seminars and lectures related to topics complementing the studio work. At the moment, we offer the following Master programmes:
MASTER STUDIES IN ARCHITECTURE
Available in English!
Validated for RIBA course status, Master studies in Architecture are conceived to include and conciliate the fields of history and theory of architecture, architectural and urban design, urban planning, implementation of architectural structures, architectural technologies and structural engineering.
Studies are organized as specialized studies from the first semester, offering the following Modules: Architecture (A), Urbanism (U), Architectural Technology (AT) and Structural Engineering (SE).
Curricula include carefully selected tasks and topics with practical relevance, so as to ensure a link to the real practice. The study programme also includes internships, which are aimed at providing students with the opportunity to apply the acquired knowledge and to acquire direct practical knowledge and experience in architectural offices, and/or other public institutions.
Upon graduation students are awarded a degree and the title of Master of Architecture – M.Arch, with reference to the selected Module – A, U, AT, SE.

Integrated single-cycle-5-year studies in architecture is a continuous five-year/ 10 semesters programme integrating Undergraduate and Master studies in a single cycle, in the course of which students earn 300 ECTS and the title of Master of Architecture – M.Arch. The study programme Integrated Academic Studies – Architecture (IASA) combines focused education in architecture and the development of necessary skills within a single degree programme.
The study program of Integrated Academic Studies – Architecture (IASA) represents the complete whole of education of architects with a wide range of professional orientation and includes teaching in the educational-scientific fields of Technology and Engineering Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities and educational-art field of Arts. The program is structured as a study program with modules, from the third semester. It consists of two modules – Module 1 and Module 2.
Module 2 is planned for realization in cooperation with Sapienza University of Rome – Faculty of Architecture (Sapienza Università di Roma – Facoltà di Architettura) in form of a double degree study program – the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture / Sapienza University of Rome – Faculty of Architecture.
Modules are connected by common subjects (compulsory and elective) throughout the whole studies, therewith that students of Module 2 60 ECTS realized at Sapienza University of Rome, reciprocally and students of Sapienza University of Rome achieve 60 ECTS at the University of Belgrade, bout during the II or III or IV year of study. Also, teaching Module 2 during the II, III and IV years of study is realized in the English language. So, teaching on Module 1 and Module 2 is entirely common in the first and in the fifth year of study, although and in the rest of the teaching, the part that takes place at the University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture, is no differences between of modules.
Upon graduation, students are awarded a degree and the title of Master of Architecture – M.Arch, University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture (Module 1), ie, University of Belgrade – Faculty of Architecture / Sapienza University of Rome – Faculty of Architecture (Module 2).
