General requirements

All general information regarding admission and application for TU Delft MSc programmes is available on this site

Please note: 

The portfolio

Applicants must meet TU Delft’s general admission requirements for international applicants, and are selected on the basis of a digital portfolio. A Portfolio is required for all MSc tracks; ArchitectureBuilding TechnologyLandscape ArchitectureManagement in the Built Environment and Urbanism. The digital portfolio should include samples of work from your previous educational programme. Working experience may be added to the portfolio.

Neatness and clarity of presentation are extremely important as they reflect both your attitude towards your work as well as your ability to communicate your work in a comprehensive and deliberate manner.

We work according to these requirements, so please pay attention to them to make sure that your portfolio is evaluated.

Evaluation criteria per programme/track:

Each track in the master programme has specific evaluation criteria that will be used to assess your application. Please study them carefully and make sure that your portfolio is developed in accordance with the track that you are applying to.

Application does not guarantee admission

Please note that you are not assured of admission simply by meeting our requirements and sending us all the required documents. Your application will be evaluated by at least two expert members of the admissions committee for the track for which you apply. They will then decide if you qualify for admission based on the information and materials provided in your application.

Applicants will only be evaluated once during an academic year; it is not possible to send new documents for re-evaluation in the same academic year.

Interviews are conducted by a member of the admissions committee, who will have thoroughly read your entire application package.
