Specifically, to be eligible for enrolment in this Doctoral Programme in Architecture, applicants must hold a current degree in Architecture or a Graduate in Architecture, in addition to having completed the Master's Degree in Architectural Research at the Uva. However, the Academic Committee of the programme may admit other related degrees (Fine Arts, History of Art, Engineering) and/or another master's degree, imposing, in any case, a certain complementary training, if deemed appropriate. In any case, this Commission will be responsible for the selection of the applicants admitted, using criteria based on academic records, the students' curricula vitae and the suitability of the training and research experience of the applicants, always prioritising excellence.
By agreement of the Academic Committee of the Doctoral Programme, at the time of pre-enrolment, candidates must include a document signed by the supervisor of their thesis, in which he/she guarantees his/her availability for that direction (access to the document). The supervisor must be a PhD with accredited research experience. To justify this requirement must also be provided, if applicable, the document of supervision with recognized six-year research periods (access to the document) or without recognized six-year research periods (access to the document).
In the event that there are not enough places, preference will be given to students who have completed the Master's Degree in Architectural Research at the Uva, secondly to the academic curriculum of the Master's Degree completed and other research training complements presented by the applicant that are in line with the interests and objectives of the doctoral programme.
