Online application for the master's program in architecture

In addition to the written application made to the Admissions Office, electronic documents must be submitted as part of the online application.

Deadlines and dates for online application 2024

Two consecutive application procedures are offered for each semester. We recommend completing the application procedure as early as possible, otherwise you will only find out very late whether admission to study at TU Wien is even possible.

  • Online registration from Monday, April 1, 2024 12:00 to Friday, June 7, 2024 23:59
  • Upload portfolio by Friday, June 7, 2024
  • Assignment: Publication: Wednesday, June 5, 2024, upload by Friday, June 7, 2024

The second procedure will take place afterwards.

The portfolio for admission to the Faculty of Architecture is a crucial component of your application. It should demonstrate your creative and constructive potential as well as your understanding of architectural concepts.

Therefore, please submit a selection of work that reflects not only the various aspects of architectural education, but also your design and construction skills.

This may include architectural sketches, drawings, models, photographs of projects, digital image syntheses or other relevant work. It is important that as many areas of architecture as possible are represented to demonstrate your ability to clearly communicate complex ideas.

In any case, please submit works of different scales (urban designs, projects with detailed, constructive elaboration, etc.), as these skills must also be determined in equivalence to the Bachelor's program at the TU.

The size of the portfolio is limited to 15 pages and 20 MB file size.

As part of the assessment procedure for admission to the Master's degree program in Architecture at TU Wien, you will independently complete and upload two assignments from fundamental areas of architecture within a reasonable period of time.

One of these tasks involves the creative elaboration of a given standard floor of a building, while the other task involves the description of the structural layers of a detailed drawing.

Both tasks reflect essential skills that are expected of graduates of the Faculty's Bachelor's degree program in Architecture and of those who are aiming for a Master's degree in Architecture at the TU.

For the assessment of your requirements for admission to the Master's program

  1. the documents you submit to the study department and
  2. the submissions from the "Portfolio" and "Assignment" sections

will be taken into account.

In addition to the general requirements, up to 30 ECTS credits may be required for admission to the Master's program. This may be necessary if, on the basis of the documents submitted by you, significant subject-related differences to the Bachelor's degree program in Architecture at the TU Vienna are identified.

If such differences cannot be compensated with a maximum of 30 ECTS, admission cannot be granted.

As soon as the conditions have been decided, you can apply for admission at the Admissions Office. You will then begin your studies.
