Entrance examination

The entrance exam takes one day. During the day, you will work on an assignment at the academy. In addition, you will also have three to five interviews spread out over the day with one of the lecturers of the admission committee.

Every lecturer in the committee will meet a number of candidates one-on-one. The interview will start by going through your completed questionnaire and having a personal interview about who you are and what you wish to accomplish. After this, the lecturer will go through your homework assignment and portfolio with you.

At the end of the day, the admission committee will convene to prepare a unanimous recommendation as to whether or not you will be admitted. Your work on the day will be taken into consideration in their decision. The examination committee will decide whether or not you will be admitted.

Result and validity

You will be notified of whether you have been admitted within three working weeks. If you are not admitted, we will attempt to provide you with insight as to the reasons for this. 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.
