Program of study


The School of Architecture of the International University of Rabat aims to offer a new practice of architectural project adapted to the context of the Mediterranean basin and Africa.

The program of architecture at the UIR is characterized by the teaching of the theory and practice of architectural and urban project. The main objective of this course is to train architects capable of performing diverse professional practices and ready to fulfil new missions to address the sociological and ecological complexities of the world around them. The organization of studies at the International University of Rabat also promotes the interdisciplinarity with the other departments (Renewable energy, Cultures, Civilizations and Sciences Po, etc.) and allows the student to better understand the complex realities of our Contemporary world (overcrowding of cities, pollution, ecological concerns)


The education of architecture developed by the UIR arises from the definition given to the word "architecture" and "territories". Throughout the program of study, the architect students will learn that design of the building consists also of the development of project of transformation of our environment.

To transmit it to students, the UIR developed with prestigious partners an original program of study and appropriate teaching methods, so that its future graduates have the skills, openness and commitment that this job requires today. The education of the program of architecture gives the student a solid training and education in exact sciences, human and social sciences and artistic technique. Throughout the course, the student is required to manage architectural projects, taking into account various constraints (budgetary, environmental, etc.).


The School of Architecture of Rabat of the UIR was born from the commitment of our teaching teams to develop an original architectural education, which puts at the core of its concerns the adequacy between architecture, urbanism and environment. Throughout the course of study, the architect students will learn that design of the building consists also of the development of project of transformation of our environment.

The program of architecture lasts 6 years. The two first undergraduate and graduate programs, with a duration of 5 years, conform to the LMD system (Bachelor’s degree, master’s degree and doctoral degree). The sixth year is a year of professionalization which allows holding the degree and to practice as an architect in accordance with laws and regulations. Teaching is organized in semesters and modules in accordance with the specifications of national educational standards. Moreover, a large part of architecture program is dedicated to the professionalization and the deepening of knowledge in particular fields.
