Concerning the two grades levels of study at the FA STU

Henrich Pifko

SUMMARY

At the FA STU there are two grade levels. In reality the bachelor level does not exist and the second level does not meet the students’ motivation. To recognize the importance of the bachelor study would solve many problems but it is inevitable to resolve it in close coordination with the Chamber of Architects, in order to clarify the professional status of the architects who are holders of a bachelor degree. The selectivity of the second degree would enable us as pedagogues to start with higher demands. However, the question depends on the degree to which the practice and the school are prepared for such a change.
