One can only participate once per academic year in the artistic entrance exam for a specific specialization and option within the Visual Arts programme. It is however possible to participate in the entrance exam for different specializations and options in the same year.
IMPORTANT NOTE FOR FASHION CANDIDATES
There is no artistic entrance examination for the specialization Fashion in March.
Fashion candidates can participate in the artistic entrance examination in July and September.
We however strongly advise fashion candidates from outside the EEA to participate in the artistic entrance exam organized in July and not the one in September. Candidates from outside the EEA have to apply for a student visa. The visa application procedure can take up to three months or longer. If candidates participate in the entrance exam in July and submit their application for a student visa immediately after having passed the exam, they can obtain their visa in time. In this way they can follow the classes from the beginning of the academic year and can also gain the necessary access to the buildings and facilities of the Academy.
