The language of study is English. The applicants must provide a minimum of 6.5 IELTS (with no band lower than 5.0), or 80 TOEFL IBT or any equivalent English language qualification. The admission commission rejects applications without a certificate of English proficiency skills.

  • Required GPA

Applicants with a completed B.Sc. degree who do not have any professional experience must have a 70% or above GPA to be eligible for the MSc program.

Applicants with relevant experience in the field of planning are also eligible to apply (non-consecutive applicants). Their GPA is considered a partial requirement but must be above average for their graduation year. The applicants must submit a personal statement (motivation letter). The applicants must have at least two years of experience in a planning-related public or private institution.

  • Gender Balance

The admission commission takes care of the gender balance. The qualified planner must reflect the gender picture of the society because the planner in the practice must deal with the needs of both genders, which requires working with women and men.
