Bergen School of Architecture or BAS (Norwegian: Bergen Arkitekt Skole) is a private and academically independent school which trains architects, located in Bergen, Norway.

BAS offers two master degree programs: Master of Architecture and Master of Architecture with specialization in Landscape. In the Norwegian context, these two programs stand as alternative programs to those offered by the two public architecture schools in Norway (AHO in Oslo and NTNU in Trondheim). BAS programs are accredited by the European Union. [1] BAS is protected by the National Norwegian Law of Alternative Private Education and receives much of its financial support from the Norwegian government.

BAS was formally founded in 1986 by the initiative of Arch. Prof. Svein Hatløy and the support of the Bergen Association of Architects. S. Hatløy functioned as the academic and administrative Principle until August 31st 2007. Architect and city planer Marianne Skjulhaug took over S.Hatløy as the school's academic and administrative Principle on September 1st, 2007.

The school has approximately 150 students divided in 5 grades. The 5-year-long master degree programs are divided in two cycles. The first cycles ends by an examination of the works the students have done in the first three grades. The approval of this examination gives the students the right to continue on the second cycle. Even though the school does not offer Bachelor degrees, the approved first cycle at BAS usually is equivalent to a Bachelor of Architecture degree in the EU system. The second cycle at BAS consists of three full-time thematic semester courses and a final 7-months-long diploma project.
