Additional Information on DAAD Study Scholarships in the Field of Architecture

To apply for a DAAD study in the field of architecture, applicants must submit by post a portfolio of work samples (together with the printed "cover sheet to application" of the "application summary" generated in the portal and the reference).

Depending on the specific field, the following work samples are required (maximum 20 DIN A4 pages):

  • Architects, including interior designers and landscape architects:
    • at least three drafts on a scale appropriate to the object (ground plan, layout, elevation and perspective, on separate sheets). These must include at least one independent (non-group) project (draft, analysis, plan).
  • Urban and regional planners and landscape planners:
    • at least three draft plans. These must include at least one independent (non-group) project (draft, analysis, plan).
    • work (such as class papers) demonstrating that applicants have already worked on planning processes.

Important information:

  • Please do not submit commercial work (from the office). An exception are own works for prizes.
  • The authorship of the designs must be made clear. The focus should be on student projects. In the case of collaborative work or projects, the contribution made by the applicant must be marked or appropriately described.
  • Please submit the work samples as bound portfolios in  DIN A4 size.
  • Samples on digital media unfortunately cannot be considered.

The submitted work samples will be returned on request after the selection process has been completed.
