Architectural education commission
The Education Commission and Validation System seeks to facilitate access to high quality education globally, focusing on increasing the international mobility of architectural education. The UIA Education Commission acts as a think-tank for architectural education policy, proposing guidelines, documents, proposals and opinions related to education. The UNESCO-UIA Charter on Architectural Education, published in 1996, lays out a series of guidelines aimed at ensuring that young architects are capable of meeting the professional, social and cultural challenges of the globalised profession.
