Admissions come on a first come, first serve basis. We admit participants based on the earlier artistic practice (demonstrated by a short portfolio, website, CV), motivation and professional dedication.

Participants do not require an bachelor's Degree. Proficiency in (spoken and written) English is important. A TOEFL or IELTS score or language certification is not required.

An online interview can be part of the admission. 

Obtain an ArtEZ Certificate of Participation

Your research essay will be assessed and provided with feedback from qualified ArtEZ staff, after which it can be published online. Finalizing your research essay is required to obtain the Certification from ArtEZ. This is the proof of the pudding and the acknowledgement of your research and final exibition work. The Community Research Programme does not have formal ECTS/credits attached to it.
