The Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts programme is only available to candidate students who have passed the artistic entrance exam.
Per academic year, the academy organizes 2 artistic entrance exams for admission to the Bachelor of Visual Arts. The artistic entrance exam assesses your artistic insight, cultural knowledge, creativity, skills and motivation. This two-day test consists of different assignments and an interview during which we will also discuss your curriculum vitae, possible home assignments and your portfolio.
This year's trial will be (partially) digital and or physical (except fashion: for this department, the trial will be entirely digital). So be sure to take a look at item 4.2. Description: Portfolio, Assignment and Interview to see how the artistic trial will go for your chosen department.
You can only participate once per academic year in the artistic entrance exam for a particular graduation direction and selection process within the Fine Arts program.
However, it is possible to take part in the artistic entrance exam for various specializations and selection processes.
