Admission Requirements:

Applicants holding a Bachelor of Architecture degree, obtained from the Namibia University of Science and Technology or any other recognised institutions, at NQF level 7 worth a minimum of 360 credits or holders of an equivalent pre-NQF 3-year qualification in the field of architecture, of a recognised Tertiary Education Institution are eligible for admission for the B. Arch. Hons programme. Qualifications from other institutions will be evaluated by the Departmental Postgraduate Selection Committee to determine equivalence in terms of core competencies, acceptable to the Department.

In addition, candidates must have obtained a minimum average mark of 60 % in Year 3 courses. Candidates, who fail to obtain the required grades in Architectural Design, are advised to gain a minimum of one year work experience in an architectural office in order to develop a portfolio of works, with which they are encouraged to re-apply in the next available academic year.

The admission of students will be by means of a selection interview with the Departmental Postgraduate Selection Committee, during which candidates will be required to present a portfolio of work, which might include work from previous studies as well as industry work.

The results of the selection process are final and no discussion or correspondence will be entered into.
