The teaching programs at ADMAS University focus on building professional capacities and therefore they are centered on ‘studios’ or ‘labs’. Here, students engage with well-designed life-like problems. Coursework, seminars and research assignments, aimed at developing conceptual and analytical abilities of students, and skill-enhancing workshops support learning in studios and labs. Students also have to enroll in travel and documentation programs and to intern in professional offices to widen their exposure.
ADMAS University cherishes the individual interests and abilities of its students. To enable each student to chart a unique course of study and realize his or her own individual potential, programs mandate only three quarters of the total credits that students have to complete.

Therefore, ADMAS University works as a collaborative of academics and practitioners. Teachers at ADMAS University, see themselves as coaches. Their role is to support individual students in their explorations and in their capacity-building quests.
