Exchange programme

Study programme and enrollment 2020-2021

Especially for students who want to broaden their horizon, the faculty offers an intensive Exchange programme. A good way to get acquainted with new technical knowledge and creative ideas from abroad. The TU Delft Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment offers a wide variety of courses to foreign students. 

Exchange students choose their programme from fixed packages offered by the faculty. During the Autumn semester (starting in September) the incoming master students have a choice of our Master 1 packages and for Bachelor students we offer English taught bachelor Minor programmes. During the second semester (spring) we will offer a choice of MSc2 design course + 3 elective courses.

Course catalogue

Please note:

The course catalogue for the academic year 2020-2021 will be updated around May 2020. Students should base their study plan on the current version of the course catalogue, bearing in mind that changes may occur next year. 

We do not offer any Minors in the Spring semester! So BSc/undergraduate students can only apply for the Autumn semester.

We only work with fixed course packages. It is not possible to choose other courses than offered or combine packages. It is however possible to choose only part of the courses in one course package as long as you meet the minimal requirement of 24 EC. The exact content of the courses for the Spring semester 2021 will be available from September 2020 on. 

Exchange students

Exchange students are students participating in the Erasmus+ programme, or students from a university that has a bilateral agreement with TU Delft.

To see if your home university is a partner, please check following website.

Exchange students:

  • are 'non-degree' students, which means that they do not receive an academic degree or a diploma. The study period at TU Delft is part of the study at their home university; credits gained at TU Delft are transferable;
  • can be registered at TU Delft for an uninterrupted maximum period of 12 months. However, the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment prefers a stay of only one semester. During their studies in Delft, they remain registered at their home university as well;
  • do not have to pay tuition fees at TU Delft. If you wish to continue your studies after the exchange period, you will have to follow the regular application procedure for international Master students. Please be aware that, if you apply for the full-time master programme and thus wish to receive a master’s degree, you need to be enrolled here as a regular student for at least three semesters.
