Admissions Requirements

Applicants holding a Bachelor of Architecture degree, obtained from the Namibia University of Science and Technology, will be evaluated by the Departmental Postgraduate Selection Committee on academic merit, based on the minimum average mark of 60% for their third year courses, and with regards to the maximum intake per academic year. Candidates who do not meet the above requirements are advised to gain a minimum of one year work experience in an architectural office, to develop a portfolio of work experience, with which they are encouraged to re-apply in the next available academic year. Such candidates will be invited for an interview with the Departmental Postgraduate Selection Committee, including a portfolio review, as per requirements set out by the Department. Applicants holding a Bachelor of Architecture degree obtained from any other recognised Tertiary Education Institution, 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. Such qualifications 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 do not meet the above requirements are advised to gain a minimum of one year work experience in an architectural office, to develop a portfolio of work experience, with which they are encouraged to re-apply in the next available academic year. Eligible candidates will be invited for an interview with the Departmental Postgraduate Selection Committee, including a portfolio review of relevant study experience, as per requirements set out by the Department. The decision of the Departmental Postgraduate Selection Committee is final and no discussion of the results with the candidates will be entertained.
