A glimpse into your future at Universidad Europea
Validated by the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and certified by the National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).
Students have visited prestigious studios such as those of Norman Foster and Zaha Hadid Architects.
According to El Mundo’s rankings, it is one of the best universities for Architecture.
The Universidad Europea de Madrid has received the International Certification designation from the National Architectural Accrediting Board for the following professional degree program or sequence:
Bachelor’s Degree in Fundamentals of the Architecture + Master’s Degree in Architecture – 2015
The term “International Certification” identifies a program as comparable in educational outcomes in all significant aspects to a program accredited by the NAAB in the United States and indicates that it provides an educational experience meeting acceptable standards, even though such program may differ in format or method of delivery. The designation is valid for six years beginning 1 January of the year in which the final visit (Visit 3) took place. In order to maintain the designation, the program must be visited again in the sixth year of the designation. Schools with programs identified as holding NAAB International Certification are not formally “accredited” as that term is used with reference to programs in the United States and may not refer to their programs as “accredited” by the NAAB. However, students who graduate from internationally certified programs are able to apply for individualized review of their credentials on an expedited basis for purposes of the Educational Evaluation Services for Architects program administered by the NAAB on behalf of the National Council of Architectural Registration Boards.
