Entrance examination

There is an important difference between admissibility (meeting the entry criteria) and actual admission. Actual admission to the Master of Architecture is only possible after successfully completing an entrance examination. As a rule, an interview is part of the admission procedure. The entrance examination can be taken on demand, even before you enrol via Studielink. If you enrol via Studielink after the entrance examination, the results of the entrance exam will be linked to your application.

Admission interviews

The admission interviews are planned on 23 June. 

Result and validity

You will be notified whether you have been admitted within three working weeks of the entrance examination. Admission is only valid for the study programme for which you have enrolled. If you wish to apply for admission to a study programme or specialisation at another location you must register for this separately. The admission is only valid for the academic year directly following the entrance examination. If you feel you lack sufficient knowledge or design skills for this Master’s, then take the preparatory courses Construction Technique or Architectural Design.
