  • 6-week construction internship
    The construction internship should already have been completed at the beginning of the degree programme. However, this is not an admission criterion!
    The construction internship can be completed in the main or secondary construction trades (i.e. also in a carpenter's workshop, carpentry, in a plumbing company, in plastering, painting, electrics, etc.), NOT EVER IN THE ARCHITECT'S OFFICE. A certificate of the trades or activities and the duration is sufficient, a report or certificate is not required.

Admission requirements for a change of study location

The question of recognition of individual academic achievements depends on their demonstrable compliance with the qualification objectives of the corresponding modules in the B. Sc. Architecture at TU Darmstadt. The necessary case-by-case assessment is only carried out after enrolment. On the other hand, assignment to a semester is based on the CP total of the previous studies as shown on the transcript of records.

There is a numerus clausus for the entire first year of study, i.e. the number of places for students who can transfer to our department is severely limited (only to the extent that places become available due to students transferring from Darmstadt to other places of study!) Therefore, we recommend that you only transfer in the 3rd semester. The prerequisite is proof of at least 60 CP in architecture. How many semesters you have already been enrolled at another university is not decisive.

Applicants who have lost their examination entitlement in architecture at their previous place of study can no longer be enrolled for this subject at the TU Darmstadt. Therefore, please enclose a current certificate from your previous university that you are still entitled to take examinations in architecture.
