How to apply?

The application process is done through the Dreamapply website, where you can submit information and documents in multiple sessions (requiring signup). A more detailed description of the process can be found here.

In addition to an official transcript of records and proof of English proficiency, we request a motivation letter in which you can explain why you find D&TF interesting and what in particular motivates you to come study with us. Gives us insight into your ambitions, what you could offer to your fellow students, as well as how much you might learn from the programme.

Depending on your background, you are required to either:

– submit a portfolio of your previous works to show us your working habits and skill level (expected from candidates with a design background)


– complete a short test that shows your general understanding of engineering and technology (expected from candidates with an engineering background).

The final step in the application process is an interview with the applicant. We will assess how well you are suited for the kind of work that we are doing in the D&TF programme, how good a team player you might be, how you might react under stress and what is your general understanding of the world around us.
