Sustainable-Sustainable Architecture is an English-taught postgraduate programme structured into online courses and practical workshops.

The programme focuses on architecture practices that consider the layered dimensions of sustainability.

It bridges topics of sustainable construction, natural building, just urban development, participatory design and social project management.

Online courses are delivered through our platform and combine theoretical input, interactive communication tools and hands-on assignments.

The practical workshops are the heart of the postgraduate programme. For a total of six weeks, split into two workshops, students translate theoretical learning into real hands-on and social practice.

During the workshops, students will co-design and collaborate in the construction process of local projects in northern Portugal.

In past editions, students have refurbished houses for low-income families, intervened in public spaces and experimented with a solar water heater facade.

The programme combines 90 hours of theoretical online lectures online with 210 hours of hands-on experience and requires additional private study.

This postgraduate diploma is equivalent to 60 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) and has a tuition fee of €2,708.

Applications to this course have now closed.
