Application Requirements

To apply for a Master degree in Architecture, applicants have to present an academic degree in a subject relevant to the specialization of the specific program. For some programs, this needs to be an academic degree in Architecture, but other programs also admit students who previously studied Design, Urban Planning, Civil Engineering, Interior Design or Cultural Studies. Furthermore, most programs only look to admit students who can prove their special aptitude by demonstrating they have the creative, technical and practical skills necessary to study Architecture. Therefore, most programs in Architecture require their applicants to hand in a portfolio with their previous work or demonstrate work experience. You can also expect to hand in standard certificates (first degree certificate and a transcript of records). These typically include your CV, a letter of motivation and sometimes letters of reference. Additionally, you will have to prove your English language abilities with a language certificate.
