About

History

AHO was established in 1945 initially as a “crisis course” for architects who had seen their education interrupted by World War II. Prior to this, most Norwegian architects were educated at the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) in Trondheim, a polytechnic school. 

Education

AHO offers Master’s degree programmes that are designed to best equip the student to enter directly into professional practice or academia. Within the Master’s programmes, students may specialise in the fields of architecture, landscape architecture and urbanism, industrial design, interaction design, service and systems-oriented design.

The school also offers post-professional Master’s courses in urban studies and architectural conservation. AHO offers a single type of doctoral degree, the Doctor of Philosophy.

As an international school, AHO’s Master’s programmes are taught in English. International students constitute 25% of the Master’s students and 50% of the PhD candidates.

Research

AHO carries out research in architecture, design landscape architecture and urbanism. Our four Research Centres define focused projects across this wide area. We focus on excellence within and across our disciplinary boundaries and on maximizing our potential as a collaborative partner with other academic institutions, with the design professions and with industry.

Student Reviews

serenity is expressed through design
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

My experience at the university was okay all through, but at the beginning being the pioneer lot we had some challenges where our program was not accredited at the time, limited number of drawing tables and pin up boards and a few lecturers but things became better as from the second year of study.

Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

Estonian Academy of Arts had been a master’s adventure of exploring the field of Architecture. However, the Academy focuses on teaching materials with no giving opportunities for students to express their culture, languages, beliefs. Such an experience that needs to be complemented with wise management and openness with other culture beliefs.
