The course programme has been structured around the three main areas specified in the Royal Decree regulating the degrees required in order to practice as an Architect and the subject matters established therein.

The degree course consists of 330 ECTS credits distributed over 6 years (11 semesters), bearing in mind that the last semester is given over to the Final Project.

  • Preparatory Block: 60  core credits in Graphic Expression (36 credits) and Basic Sciences (Mathematics and Physics) (24 credits).
  • Technical Block: 42 credits in Construction, 24 in Structures and 18 in Installations. There are also 36 optional credits in Construction (18 credits) and Structures (18 credits).
  • Project Block: 72 credits in Projects, 36 in Composition and 36 in Urban Planning.

Optional subjects are also offered in English, Computer Science and Work Experience. Lastly, the Final Project is worth 30 credits, once the previous 300 credits have been obtained. Prior to evaluation for the final project, the student must provide evidence of ability in a foreign language. Among other possible qualifications, at the University of Alicante the minimum necessary requirement is to have attained level B1 of the European Framework of Reference for Languages, and this requirement may be raised in the future.

The Regulations of the AU to implement undergraduate degrees provides in Article 7: The student shall be guaranteed the opportunity to obtain academic recognition to a maximum of six credits of elective total completed curriculum, by participation in activities university culture, sports, student representation, solidarity and cooperation.

TIMESCALE FOR IMPLEMENTATION

 

The course programme proposed here for the University of Alicante Degree in Architecture will be implemented on a year-by-year basis. This involves replacing each year of the programme leading to the qualification of Architect currently being run by the University of Alicante Higher Institute of Engineering (1996 programme). Those subjects taught on the current degree will be completely phased out as soon as those of the new Degree Course in Architecture are implemented.

Implementation of the new University of Alicante Degree in Architecture course will begin in the academic year 2010-2011.

 Credits taken by Architecture students not listed in the above table may be validated by means of:

1. Degree course optional credits, up to the maximum number of optional credits established for each degree course.

2. Recognised free-elective credits validated for university, cultural or representational activities will be validated for the degree course, with a maximum of up to 6 academic credits to be validated for various activities, as set out in Art. 12.8 Royal Decree 1393/2007 (participation in cultural, sporting, student representation, charity and cooperation activities).

In addition to the adaptation table for subjects in the proposed programme and subjects in the Architecture programme being phased out, the terms and regulations for remaining and progressing at Alicante University must be respected.

Also aplicable is the Second Transitional Provision of the regulations oa Alicante University, which reads: "Students who do not wish to take the new degree course subjects are entitled to sit four examinations at the end of the following two academic years. Any students wishing to continue their studies after sitting and failing these examinations will be required to follow the new plan, according to the adaptation system established in the new programme. A one-to-one equivalence will be applied to LRU and ECTS credits, although overall limits will be established for the credit validation system".
