For the Graphic Design programme at the Design Department, ArtEZ is looking for students with a critical attitude who are not afraid to experiment and push the boundaries of their field.
As of the 2016-2017 academic year, students starting the formative phase of the Graphic Design programme in Arnhem will be taught in English.
All our study programmes have language requirements. You will need to prove your language proficiency by handing in a certificate stating your level. The level for Graphic Design before September 1st is:
To be admitted to the programme, we feel it is important that you can demonstrate your ability to translate your visual and creative capabilities into unique and communicative images. A great deal of drawing practice will help hone your drawing skills, which is an important foundation for this profession.
The Arnhem Graphic Design admission day begins with a 15-minute interview with an admission committee consisting of one or two lecturers and two students.
The admission interview consists of:
Depending on the outcome of this interview you will receive an invitation to take part in the practical part of the entrance examination the following day from 10.00 to 16.00. This practical part consists of two assignments you will complete at the academy. The admission committee will advise the examination committee on whether or not to admit you.
9 and 10 February 2018
23 and 24 March 2018
18 and 19 May 2018
You will be notified of whether you have been admitted within three working weeks.
Admission is only valid for the study programme for which you have enrolled. If you wish to apply for admission to a study programme or specialisation at another location you must register for this separately. The admission is only valid for the academic year directly following the entrance examination.
Enrolment for the Bachelor of Design – of which Graphic Design is a part – is done through Studielink. You will then receive information on the date that you will be expected at the academy. You will also receive a homework assignment and a questionnaire (CV).
