Architects from all nations willing to increase their knowledge and research field in collective housing and high density cities, and able to demonstrate good skills developing projects in the time given, are invited to enroll our selection process.
As MCH is a postgraduate degree, candidates will already have a Diploma as architects, a master’s degree according to the European Higher Education Area Framework* or equal level degree. The actual naming of the degrees may vary from country to country.
*The European Higher Education Area Framework establishes three cycles:
- 1st cycle: typically 180–240 ECTS credits, awarding a bachelor's degree.
- 2nd cycle: typically 90–120 ECTS credits (a minimum of 60 on 2nd-cycle level), awarding a master's degree.
- 3rd cycle: doctoral degree. No ECTS range given.
Once the candidates are admitted, following documents have to be presented:
Those who have a foreign degree, issued in a non EU country
Those who have a foreign degree, issued in an EU country
Those who have a degree issued in Spain
It is compulsory to attend everyday classes unless justified, e.g. medical assistance must be submitted to the Secretary’s Office.
There will be a daily control of attendance. Participants will be asked to sign a sheet and signature controls will be done from time to time to avoid cheating. Signing the attendance sheet and leaving, or signing on someone else’s behalf will be considered a felony.
Participants will have a maximum of 5 minutes to go in the classroom before the class starts. Once the lecturer has started, participants won’t have access to the classroom until the break. Likewise participants will not leave the class during a lecture.
Participants are allowed to have a maximum of 5 absences, that must be documented and justified. If exceeded, the participant shall not receive the MCH Diploma.
