Architectural education commission
The UIA Education Commission acts as a think-tank for architectural education policy, proposing guidelines, documents, proposals and opinions related to education. The aim is to facilitate access to high quality education globally, focusing on increasing the international mobility of architectural education.
The UNESCO-UIA Study Programme Validation aims to set an international standard for excellence in architectural education, ensuring the prestige and integrity of validated schools.
The UNESCO-UIA Charter on Architectural Education, published in 1996, lays out a series of guidelines aimed at ensuring that young architects receive an education that fully prepares them to meet the professional, social and cultural challenges of the globalised profession. The Charter acts as the basis for the UNESCO-UIA Study Programme Validation.
