Prospective Students

Doctoral studies in English at the Faculty of Architecture can be studied in two programs: Architecture and Urbanism and Smart Cities. On this page you will find important documents for the admission procedure. Including information about the listed thematic areas and details of study and research. 

PhD students at FA focus on research in architecture, history, constructions, urbanism, landscape and design. The main results of their activities are dissertations and publications or other research outputs. In addition to developing their own research topic, students also establish contacts in the domestic and foreign academic sphere and, with the help of FA teachers, deepen their knowledge in the field and academic competence.

The standard period of study is a minimum of 3 years and a maximum of 4 years, and during this period full-time students receive a scholarship. The maximum period of study (i.e. the defense of the dissertation) cannot exceed 8 years.

Students studying doctoral programs are expected to participate in FA research projects and FA publication activities, or in teaching activities. Students are offered a number of support activities, including the FA Academic Competition, the FA Mobility Fund or the CTU Student Grant Competition.
