Hello everyone,

Did any of you apply trough uni-assist so far? I am having a trouble to select online documents for each subject. Uni-assist didn't ask me to pick the online documents at any step of the application and without my portfolio my application looks done.

Did any of you face the same problem?

Hello, you don’t get to assign certain files to certain courses or programs in the new uni assist portal.

 · 
mostafaelghazawy

However you can upload all the files u want through the pull down menu under my application in documents.

 · 
turanziaiemehr

Hey, did you include the cover of your portfolio in the 8 pages? Or is it the nineth?

 · 
mostafaelghazawy

I e-mailed them and they told me I get to include one page cover and one page for content with a maximum of 10 pages front only.

Hello everyone, 
Turns out that portfolio is not looking mandatory for the application and before I upload my portfolio to uni assist system they forwarded my application to the school. I sent my documents by post beforehand to make sure they arrive on time but they went earlier than I expected and accidently my application is done without my portfolio and other additional documents. I don't understand how uni assist pick the online documents for each application but turns out they pick the documents from the pool we put our documents to. Make sure you upload everything carefully.
Good luck

Hi, for the 2020/2021 winter semester is clearly stated on the website of the M-ARCH-T that the hard copy to send by post is not needed due to the sanitary emergency.

 · 
turanziaiemehr

on http://www.m-arch-t.tu-berlin.de/how-to-apply: [...] Furthermore, the application process has been modified. For the winter semester 2020/21 you can submit your application online. Thus, the application documents don’t have to be submitted as hard copies but only in electronic form as PDF files. The required application documents are a ll to be submitted as PDF files by the application deadline. Any required document (including the language certificate) that is submitted after the end of the application period can unfortunately not be considered.

​Thankyou! However, I was talking about the email we're supposed to get in order to log-in in the TUB Website. The one where the answers will be shown, like they talked about in this thread last year.

 ·

I think that since the deadline has been postponed to june 15th, also the mails with any further informations will arrive later... But I'm not sure about it!

Finally! Finally I found something related to this programme. Even I'm interested in applying for M-Arch-T winter sem 2020. I've been trying to find any students or graduates of this programme for a while now. Just to know about their experience.

hey guys,


I’m from Melbourne and am planning to apply to the M-Arch-T program when I finish my undergrad this year. Was just wondering what grades should you be getting for them to accept you? Is it an average of 70% etc? If anyone could tell me what the acceptance rates are as well that’ll be amazing!


Kind regards,


Jarel

I am applying with my undergrad degree. Does anyone know the process of becoming a registered architect with this degree, say in EU or UK? I heard that MSc, unlike MArch is not a professionally qualifying.


Jul 30, 20 8:03 am  · 
 · 
yashdeepahluwalia

In Europe you'll need to work for 2years as an architect under someone to qualify for registration, after this or the hogeschule (M.Sc) . For example in the Netherlands they have clubbed the 2year MSc and 2 year experience into a part time course of 4 years which gets you into the Dutch Archi register directly.

Jul 30, 20 8:20 am  ·

kevin12dra

Thanks! So with this degree, and after the work experience, I can qualify to be a German Architect. Do you know if gained the title a German architect, can apply as a registered Architect in EU and UK? Thanks a lot!

1  · 
yashdeepahluwalia

No idea about the UK....but I think in Europe it would be okay.... considering that you aren't from Europe if you are not registered after a bachelors, for example to practice in Spain you might have to be very familiar with the langauge and work culture there. Thus it's better to study where you intend to practice. Just a thought.

In the website is says the deadline for the winter semester is tomorrow (31st July 2020). Does anybody know if tomorrow is included or not? Thanks! 

Jul 30, 20 12:09 pm  ·

The deadline is at 12pm. That was mentioned in the 'unanswered questions section' in Uni assist website. I think it is safer to upload by morning.

kevin12dra

Hey, did you receive any notification that the application was forwarded to TU Berlin or not?

 · 
ann_

I didn't receive any confirmation. If I log into my Uni Assist portal, it only says "in evaluation". I thought I'd get an email, but nothing. What about you?

 · 
kevin12dra

Me too! I haven’t gotten any confirmation. Was worried I was the only one.

antoniamorales

Hi all,
Is your portfolio single pages or double pages?  I got confused last minute because the requirements says to keep in mind the A4 format.. 

Thanks


Jul 30, 20 9:05 pm  · 
 · 
ann_

Someone on here said A4 pages, front only, so I guess it's single pages.

louis_h

Hi everyone! Just curious, what do you think about the fact that the deadline of the application for the winter semester was postponed so many times? I was thinking maybe they didn't get many applications this year? I mean, I know the reason is Covid-19, but I felt like it wouldn't make sense to postpone deadlines last minute, if the applicants had already outnumbered the available positions.

Aug 4, 20 9:05 am  · 
3  · 
yashdeepahluwalia

Yep, felt the same. I guess as the course is new, they are trying to push deadlines so as to get a certain standard 'quality' in their applications and not quantity. It is not first come first serve basis, and they've just had the open house and discussions online so it is like they don't think that the contents and ideas of the program were shown as well as they could...just some thoughts.

 · 
fabihafairooz

Hey all! Just wondering if anyone is feeling anxious about how late interview dates are vs when classes begin. How is everyone holding up? Anyone know an estimated date of acceptances after the interviews?

​I’m just anxious about applying for visa so late and getting the apartment in case I get admitted.

From what I’ve read before in this thread people got a response within a week or two. I just got an email from TU that they got my application. That’s something at least haha.

 · 
ann_

Did anyone else get an email? I haven’t received anything yet.

 · 
anastasiapopova

Did you get an “okay” on your uni-assist or only “in evaluation”? Cause if second it may have not gotten to TU yet

 · 
elsadtl

Same here than Anastasia, but because I sent my application ages ago like in March.

1  · 
ann_

My application is still in evaluation, but it’s probably because I sent it last minute. Thanks for the info :) and good luck to everyone!

1  · 
amaria

Even my application says In Evaluation on uni assist. Even I sent it in the last minute. By when do you think we'll receive a response?

 · 
anastasiapopova

I think if uni assist received it by the deadline you should be fine, even if they are still evaluating it. Once they are done you will probably get an email from TU, I would say like a week or two after uni assist approved it.

 · 
sushimita

For people who had applied in the last minute, has your status been updated to 'Okay' in Uni assist?

 · 
amaria

Yes, it has been updated.

defnebuyurman

Hey guys I checked my application status page and there is an N but nothing else is written under the status. Do anyone else have the same situation? Or any information about what it means? Is it normal or is it bad news?

Aug 7, 20 4:39 am  · 
 · 
anastasiapopova

N is fine, I have it too, nothing will change until September 8th, that’s when they will email people with the interview dates if you got to the next round. What it says on your TU berlin page is that “N” and any other letter is fine and only “Y” means you got accepted. But it doesn’t really matter cause they will also email you. So we shouldn’t be anxious guys! It will all work out:)

defnebuyurman

Thank you!

 · 
amaria

Has anyone uploaded any document on uni-assist after the deadline? Will they be considered if uploaded?

Aug 7, 20 5:54 am  · 
 · 
anastasiapopova

I would say no, especially if they already forwarded you application to TU it means if you want to provide some extra documents you will have to email TU directly and it has to be before the deadline.

 · 
amaria

Yeah, I mailed the university and they said no.

 · 
yashdeepahluwalia

If anyone is in touch with an alumni or student of the program, please ask them/yourself to share some experience and information about it. It is anyways story time now.

Hello everyone, i got a question about the language certificate and i hope you guys can help me out. In May the minimun requirement for the TOEFL IBT WAS 90 but they raised it to 95 when they postponed the deadline.

If you applied before the deadline was extended and the requirements were changed, I think they might consider. Meanwhile you can write to the admission coordinator explaining your case.

Hi Everyone, 

Long time reader first time poster lol.

I submitted my application to uni-assist back in June but my application status is still "In Evaluation". The site says to wait 8+ weeks as I am applying from Europe but Im getting worried now as interview time comes closer. 

Is anyone else in the same situation? I cant seem to reach uni-assist through phone or email.

Has anyone else been accepted into other universities? I sent the application to other universities to have a back up plan and I’ve been accepted to 2 of them, but Berlin is my first choice.

Here is what they told me in the email: "We will inform all applicants on the 8th September if they (and when) get invited for the interviews. The Final decissions will be at the end of september/beginn of october.

Sep 20, 20 12:00 pm  ·

marcogiudicianni

I think so, they told they will announce the results within 2 weeks. About how it's going to be announced, I'm guessing by email since we're supposed to accept the offer by clicking on some link which they are going to provide us in case we get accepted.
However this is a second hand information so i think we just need to sit tight and wait

I've also received e-mails (and when I chceck my status at the portal it's a "J"), but still, there's no admission letter even in "notices and certificates". It's weird, it would all make sense only if I were accepted but somehow I feel this may not be the case. Have any of You contacted the university to clarify the situation?

where did you find this?

7th October

 · 
louis_h

Has anyone's status changed to an actual rejection? On the portal it says that until the status indicates a rejection with a date, it's not definitive, but since admission emails have already been sent, I think this is final.

Sep 24, 20 1:58 am  · 
 · 
kwakkwak

Maybe they only send out rejection letters once they fill all of their spots, instead of just waitlisting people

Sep 24, 20 6:30 am  · 
1  · 
Geel

Personally, I got the acceptance email but I will not enroll because I have already started my studies at another university this month. Maybe they will wait for people who will reject the admission and then inform the ones in the waiting list.

Sep 24, 20 6:41 am  · 
1  · 
kubachrząstek

Have you received an admission e-mail per se? I've only got some e-mails with my ID and some instructions on how to log into the university portal - which works fine, but still, there's no official offer and I'm not able to accept / reject anything

 · 
Geel

If you got the email with instructions for further enrollment, it means you have been accepted (my opinion). If you check the QIZUL website thing, you will probably have a "J".

 · 
kubachrząstek

Yes, it's a J with a date (23-09) so I guess its allright. My main concern is probably the waiting list - with the admission process going on so late this year and a limited number of students it feels weird that I can't confirm I'm still interested in the program - earlier comments on the forum seem to imply that in previous years, accepting the offer was the first step towards enrollment.

 · 
Geel

Idk, I didn't try to register at all. But in the email they ask us to register with our TUB ID, and also to pay the tuition fees as soon as possible. In my opinion that seem s like you've already been admitted. But for further questions maybe send them an email?

1  · 
louis_h

So you don't have any way to reject the offer? That probably means the waiting list will be open until after the enrollment deadline, right? Sorry, I'm trying to figure out what to do lol. I'll probably just email the university.

 · 
Geel

No worries! I have no idea about the waiting list or the deadline tbh, but since I won't go there, there should be a free spot now. Plus, there could be other students in the same situation as me... I emailed them earlier that I won't proceed with the enrollment.

1  · 
kubachrząstek

I guess waiting for the 7th October is a way TUB may check the number of enrollments and then invite other candidates as the free spots appear. I'm not sure whether there's anything that could happen before that date. The process is really confusing tbh, hope You receive some more detailed answer. And good luck in the next round of admissions!

Hello guys, i wanted to inform you that i  received the 2 emails with the details about my student id and the enrollment process yesterday, however only now i received the acceptance letter through email and i confirmed my partecipation to the program by clicking on a link that you can find on the acceptance letter itself. So this is the process, this is how it works, Therefore for those who are not interested in taking part to the program, i recommend to do the same and formally reject the offer, so that the position can be offered to  someone else

congrats on everyone who got their acceptance letter! I’m from Australia and was thinking of applying next year, would you guys be able to share how you got accepted? What grades are they looking for particularly ?

this year I think they selected applicants with a GPA that went from 1 ( which is the maximum) to 1.7 as I know, but it changes every year I guess.
