The aim of this doctoral degree programme in Architecture and Planning at the University of Liechtenstein is to develop and promote emerging researchers as an extension of the Master’s degree, and at other stages of their careers.


The Architecture and Planning programme at the University of Liechtenstein is organised into two sections. 

The first is structured into a set of curricular offerings. In this preparation phase, methodical and subject competencies are further expanded. The doctoral students prepare a preliminary study, or research plan, for their dissertation, to be presented in a colloquium. 

The preliminary study must be approved before continuing the programme.

The second section of the degree programme is the dissertation phase. Research is carried out independently, and the results are presented in the form of a dissertation. Seminars or colloquia relating to the dissertation must be attended. The dissertation is concluded with a disputation, or oral defence. The dissertation must be published before the academic degree can be awarded.
