Covers must not be larger than 594mm X 420mm (A2). The applicant's reference number (on your invitation letter), telephone number and the wording "DEPARTMENT OF ARCHITECTURE" must appear on the cover in neat block letters. The portfolio cover is part of the portfolio and should be designed as a reflection of the applicant and their work. The portfolio must contain the following: A single A4 sheet (preferably typed) providing: A summary of the applicant's most recent school results and other studies A brief outline of the applicant's work experience and the results of any aptitude testing A certified declaration that the portfolio is the applicant's own work A certified copy of the applicant's most recent school results and other studies A one-page essay (preferably typed) explaining why the applicant would like to study architecture A letter from a firm of architects confirming that the applicant has spent a full day in their office and has discussed a career in architecture with one of the senior members of the firm. Project 1: Drawing Make a pencil drawing of the entrance to a favourite public building. Use A2 paper (594mm x 420mm). Do this drawing as accurately and as neatly as possible. This drawing must be done free-hand. A ruler, compass or any other technical drawing instrument may not be used, nor may the drawing be traced from a photograph. You may add colour and or any form of rendering. It is preferable that you draw a building that you have visited before. In your own handwriting and words, describe the entrance that you have drawn and why this particular entrance appeals to you. This essay should clearly describe the building; its entrance in totality, including but not limited to, the spaces on either side of the entrance door. Where possible, indicate which architect and/or engineer designed the building. This essay should not exceed 2 pages. Project 2: Mapping exercise Without text, visually communicate a journey from your home to a favourite local destination. Any medium is acceptable. Use one sheet of A2 paper. All drawings must be done free-hand only. A map on its own will not suffice. Project 3: Creative ability Include any five other pieces of work as evidence of your creative ability. This could include photographs, essays, poetry, paintings, dance, sculpture, pottery, handicraft, etc. In the case of items such as pottery, sculpture or activities such as dance, include a clear photograph – do not include the original item. You should preferably include a diverse array, not just photographs or paintings, etc. Project 4: Three-dimensional thinking Design and make cardboard packaging that can securely hold a set of three table tennis ("ping-pong") balls. Your design must be such that it can be made from a single piece of cardboard that can be cut to shape, folded and glued together. The packaging must be "flat packed" (cut out but not folded and glued together) and included in your portfolio in its flat (unfolded form). On a separate A2 sheet of paper, provide graphic instructions on how to assemble the packaging. PLEASE NOTE The size of portfolio may NOT exceed A2 (594 x 420mm). The drawings may NOT be rolled up or put into cylindrical containers. Each item of your work must be clearly marked with your name. While we take every care not to damage items, we cannot be held responsible in any way for the loss or damage to the whole or part of your work. We look for the following in the work: Potential and resourcefulness: Note that candidates with little experience in art or design are admitted where their work provides evidence of good observation, three-dimensional awareness and careful consideration of the presentation of the portfolio, with good, hand-drawn lettering, careful paper selection and careful organisation of the pages. Motivation: This can be seen in the way in which you present your work as a whole, the degree of effort and time invested in your portfolio as well as your written motivation. Initiative: What often separates successful applicants from others is the ability to explore or record something for themselves, working because they are interested – not because they have to. This means that sketch explorations are as useful as finished works. Although supplementary work from school art or other institutions or courses is often received, evidence of this independent initiative does not necessarily lie there. Creative ability: This is an important factor. However, note that expertise in technical drawing, painting, water colours, etc. is not all that is looked at. A sense of design or composition, an ability to observe, communicate clearly, represent accurately and a sense of scale that allows for an imaginative approach to subject matter and attention to detail are all looked for in the work. Academic potential: Strong portfolios often show work that is motivated by original ideas, thoroughness, initiative, faultless grammar and spelling, vocabulary, research, etc. Details of portfolio evaluation are available on www.uj.ac.za/architecture ​ PORTFOLIO DEADLINE Portfolios must be submitted within two weeks of the applicant's attending the selection testing but no later than 30 October 2016. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the assessment in an official letter. Portfolios must be collected by 29 January 2017. The portfolio must be sent via courier or delivered to the Departmental Secretary, Department of Architecture, FADA Building, Auckland Park Bunting Road Campus, University of Johannesburg, Cottesloe, Johannesburg. Contact telephone number 011 559 1115.

Such applications will be reviewed by the relevant HoF at The IIE CAT in collaboration with the Registrar. ​​​NSC: students are required to have Mathematics at least at level 4 or Mathematical Literacy at level 7. For those students who have Mathematics at level 3 or Mathematical Literacy at levels 4, 5 or 6, an intermediate level (38 or above) in the NBT QL-AQL assessment is required. Students who have Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy at levels lower than the above would not be considered; OR, ​​SC: endorsement is required with at least 40% for Mathematics on the HG; OR at least 50% for Mathematics on the SG; OR, a Senior Certificate or equivalent with complete or conditional exemption with at least 40% for Mathematics on the HG OR at least 50% for Mathematics on the SG. For those not meeting the requirements as set out above, a minimum of an intermediate level (38 or above) in the NBT QL- AQL assessment is required. ​​​General requirements for undergraduate degrees: All applicants for The IIE undergraduate degree studies, including international students, are required to write the Academic and Quantitative Literacy (AQL) – National Benchmark Test (NBT), unless they have attained the age of 23 by the time they register. The AQL – NBT is used for placement in student support programmes and does not replace the admission requirements for a specific degree programme. Applicants who achieve a score lower than 64% are required to register for and successfully complete the two Academic Literacy, Introduction to Scholarship modules (ITSA and ITSB). Applicants who do not write the AQL - NBT prior to admission will automatically be registered for ITSA and ITSB whether or not these are credit bearing modules in their qualifications. These candidates may, on provision of an AQL - NBT score of 64% or above, be exempted from one or both the modules if and only if these are not credit bearing modules in their qualifications. For candidates who are completing the modules as a result of the low AQL - NBT score or who did not provide an AQL - NBT score, successful completion of ITSA and ITSB is a pre-requisite for registering for any third year modules and thus any student who has not completed ITSA or ITSB in their first year of study will be required to do so in their second year. Where ITSA or ITSB is credit bearing in the qualification concerned, successful completion of one or both (depending on the curriculum structure) is also a graduation requirement.​ [-]
