The Faculty of Architecture is the only institution of higher education in Croatia combining instruction and research in the fields of architecture and urban design. The Faculty nourishes the scope and tradition of engineering skills and knowledge, complemented by artistic principles and activities as an inherent feature of the architectural design process. Its curriculum is comparable to the curricula of most schools of architecture at European universities and to a large extent to those at universities of both North and South America. The undergraduate programme is based on a balance of lectures and studios. The programme is enriched and complemented by site surveying and visits to towns in Istria as well as architectural summer schools in Motovun, Bol and Unije. The summer school in Motovun has an international flavour and has been a part of the programme for more than 20 years. Field trips are a particular form of the instruction in the first four years of study. Students, guided by their teachers, visit Croatian regions and are acquainted with historical and contemporary urban design and architectural achievements.There is also a School of Design, organised as an interdisciplinary study, at the Faculty of Architecture. Its educational programme is realized in co-operation with the Faculty of Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Forestry, Economy, Humanities and Social Sciences and the Academy of Fine Arts. The School is a member of ICSID (International Council of the Societies of Industrial Design) and ICOGRADA (International Council of the Associations of Graphic Designers).
The University of Zagreb is the biggest Croatian universityand the oldest continuously operating university in the area covering Central Europe south of Vienna and all of Southeastern Europe.
The Faculty of Architecture in Zagreb is the oldest institution of higher education in Croatia combining instruction and research in the fields of architecture and urban design. It will celebrate 100 years of continuous architectural education in 2019. The Faculty offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral study programs. It is also active in international exchange and student mobility. The undergraduate Bachelor level study program lasts for 6 semesters, the graduate level Master study program lasts for 4 semesters, and the doctoral study program lasts for 6 semesters. It enrolls 130 students in the study program of architecture and urban planning and 30 students in the study program of design. The programs are accredited and the master degree obtained provides a basis for joining the European architectural and design practice and applying for a professional license. Teaching is based on a balance of lectures and studios. The Faculty nourishes the scope and tradition of engineering knowledge and skills complemented by artistic principles and reflection as inherent features of the architectural design process. Students are directed towards a realistic, problem-solving approach but within a broader cultural and social framework. They are introduced to basic principles and methods of scientific research and stimulated to learn through their own creative efforts in architectural design and urban planning as well as visual and industrial design. The program offers a balance of theoretical knowledge and practical skills needed by numerous and varied disciplines and are permanently encouraged to develop their intellect and creativity.
Our institution offers accommodation in 2 student halls of residence to exchange students coming from our partner institutions. You can find a more detailed information about the student residences on http://international.unizg.hr/international_students/exchange_students/student_services/housing

Research is based on integral understanding of both inventive and pragmatic demands which constitute architectural design and urban planning. The approach to project development is based on comprehensive analyses of functional, technical, programmatic and contextual aspects of architectural typologies and different scales of urban planning in order to respond to society’s needs. Research is directed towards a realistic, problem-solving approach within a broader cultural and social framework. Research studies include history of art and architecture, contemporary architectural theories, sustainability matters, means of architectural representation and recent investigations in architectural and urban design.
The main research fields of the School of Design are analytical methods of studying 2D and 3D forms, human needs, materials and technological processes, communication systems, the role of design in economy, culture, society and its importance in forming the cultural identity.
