Entry Requirements
Candidates are selected on the basis of their academic qualifications and relevant industry experience. An applicant must assemble the following:
1. Evidence of a bachelor’s degree with honours in Architecture, Engineering, Landscape Architecture, Planning/Urban Design, Project and Facility Management or other building-related degree programmes, or qualifications as may be approved by National University of Singapore’s Senate.
   
2. A detailed CV and project portfolio, the former describing at least two years of relevant practical experience and the latter illustrating this with projects in which the applicant has had an active role. The portfolio should be no larger than A4 format and it should highlight, in particular, the candidate’s role in each project.

It is important that the CV and portfolio are used to illustrate the candidate’s interest and experience in the subject of sustainability. This may include non-professional activities, where possible, for instance community and/or environmental activism, contributions to print or online publications, etc.
   
3. Letters of reference from at least two persons who know the applicant well in an academic or professional capacity.
   
4. 4. An essay explaining in what way the question of sustainability is important to the candidate’s home country/city/region, what s/he plans to do after graduation, and why, specifically, s/he has chosen MSc ISD. The essay should not exceed 2000 words.
   
5. TOEFL score of 580 or equivalent for applicants whose first degree is not taught in English.
   
  Shortlisted candidates may be asked to appear for an interview. Where an applicant is not based in Singapore, the interview will take place via the internet.
