Admission to the master programme Architecture is contingent on the completed bachelor programme Architecture or an equivalent completed university curriculum. Bachelor programme graduates who have not yet demonstrated artistic aptitude must submit proof of this in a two- to three-day oral and written admission examination before a board of examiners.
In the first part of the examination, the prospective students present and expound on their own artistic work in the field within the context of an admission interview. The examiners grade the quality of the concepts submitted, the presentation of these samples and the student’s manner of communicating his/her ideas.
The second part, an on-site work on a set topic, explores the candidates’ artistic and conceptual articulation skills and their awareness of the problems of architecture on the basis of a specific task (text, freehand drawing, etc.) and moreover tests their talent for spatial and networked thinking by charging them to develop an architectural design to be networked/integrated with specific sub-areas of architecture.
If a student has not previously attended the (introductory) courses on scientific work methods (4ECs), he or she must catch up on these classes in the course of the master programme and in any case before registering for his/her master thesis.
