NORDMAK, The Nordic Master in Architectural Heritage is an academic postgraduate and continuing education programme

NORDMAK bridges the gap between theory and practice and provides students with skills in theory formation, exploration, documentation and a value-based work method within the subject area as well as process management skills. Specific topics such as world heritage and cultural environment are on the curriculum, just as sustainability in the built cultural heritage is included.

Based at the Aarhus School of Architecture in Denmark, NORDMAK is a cross-Nordic collaboration involving the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Royal Institute of Art (KKH) in Stockholm, Aalto University and Alvar Aalto Foundation in Helsinki with teachers and students from across the Nordic region. The program involves spending one week during each of the first four semesters alternately in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Finland, with instruction, group work, and discussions taking place in the Nordic languages (Swedish, Norwegian and Danish). English is also used in teaching and literature.

NORDMAK is aimed at fully-qualified graduates who work professionally with architectural heritage – architects, engineers, designers, planners, construction caseworkers, archaeologists, historians, museum inspectors and more from both private and public companies, organizations and administrations.

NORDMAK is an investment in the future – for the cultural heritage, for the workplace and for you as a student. You will be a forerunner within the work of understanding, reinforcing and communicating the architectural cultural heritage in buildings, cities, cultural environments and landscapes. The course improves your skills both professionally and methodically, so that you can develop, manage and disseminate the architectural cultural heritage at a high level.
