Bachelor of Architecture

Course Overview

Successful completion of the Bachelor of Architecture will enable registration as Candidate Architectural Technologists with the Namibia Council for Architects and Quantity Surveyors (NCAQS) in terms of Act 13 of 1979, and Act 11 of 1992.

Admissions Requirements

At least 30 points in 5 subjects of which 12 points must be in English and Mathematics and 18 points for any three subjects out of the following: Technical Drawing, Physical Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Fine Art, Arts and Crafts, Literature, Carpentry and Economics on NSSC Higher or Ordinary Level. No symbol must be lower than a C. The admission of students will be by means of a selection process, involving three stag¬es as follows: First Stage: Candidates are to be assessed on academic merit only. Candidates apply for this stage with their latest Grade 12 / NSSC Ordinary Level (NSSCO) and / or NSSC Higher Level (NSSCH) results. Candidates are required to meet the following minimum academic criteria to be considered: • At least 12 points on the NUST evaluation scale for English and Mathematics using a combination of NSSCH and / or NSSCO, provided that no symbol lower than a C on NSSCO will be accepted. • A minimum of 18 points on the NUST evaluation scale for any three other subjects out of the following (or their equivalent): Technical Drawing, Physical Science, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geography, Fine Art, Arts and Crafts, Literature, and Economics, us¬ing a combination of NSSCH and NSSCO, provided that no symbol lower than a C on NSSCO will be accepted. Second Stage – Selection Test: Candidates who meet the minimum academic requirements for admission will be invited for a selection test set by the Department. The selection test will assess candidates in terms of their general knowledge, knowledge of technical and scientific principles, free hand and technical drawing skills as well as English language skills. Based on the outcome of the selection test, the Department will compile a selection shortlist. Prior learning in technical / geometrical drawing provides an extremely advantageous foundation for students entering all programmes leading to an architectural qualification. Final Stage – Selection Interview: Shortlisted candidates will be invited for selection interviews with the Selection Committee, after which a final selection list and ranked waiting list will be compiled. The results of the Selection Process are final and no discussion or correspondence will be entered into. If the final Grade 12 results of candidates, who were selected provisionally, do not meet the mini¬mum requirements, then final admission to the programme will be withheld.
