Exchange yourself! Exchange at DAE, study year 2017-2018, first semester.
For the Fall semester 2017 (beginning of September till the end of January) Exchange at DAE means that you will have the opportunity to participate in either our 4th year Studio programme or in our 3rd year Minor programme (both on Bachelor level).
The Studio is a full-time bachelor programme (30 ECTS) in one of our Design Departments in year 4. This DAE Studio programme is open to all DAE students and the accepted exchange students. We recommend that you first check the DAE Design Departments before you actually apply for Exchnage at DAE; it is wise to adjust your portfolio to the top 3 of DAE Design Departments you are thinking of choosing. We will place you in the Design Department that best matches your work and your preference. This can be different from the departments you applied for. It is not possible to change your Design Department, since the number of available places is limited. To be able to participate in the Studio programme you need to have obtained at least 120 ECTS. Exchange is possible for a maximum of one semester and only at Bachelor level.
The Minor is a full-time Bachelor programme (30 ECTS) in one of our 6 Minor programmes in year 3. To be able to participate in the Minor programme you need to have obtained at least 60 ECTS and for some of the programmes you need to have a basic level.
Exchange is possible for a maximum of one semester for the Fall semester only and only on Bachelor level.
Are you a Master student? Please, feel free to apply, but you will be placed in the Bachelor course.
Design Academy Eindhoven has a specific selection procedure for exchange students. We have three reasons for this selection procedure:
Compared to most design academies and universities, Design Academy Eindhoven is structured differently. DAE’s main focus is on conceptual design. And DAE usually receives more applications than there are places.
The academy has a long tradition of accepting exchange students and it boasts many bilateral agreements with design academies and universities from all over the world (within the EU for Erasmus+). Experience has taught us the importance of finding the best match between student and academy / design department. To do so, our selection is based on the candidate’s portfolio. The portfolio has to be uploaded for review, together the other application items.
The deadline for the Fall semester is May 1st.
You can apply via our digital application procedure. Scroll down for the online procedure. Open between April 15 (12.00) and April 30 (23.59).
Procedures start immediately after the deadine. As soon as we have received all application items and as soon as the deadline has passed, we will take your application into account. Normally, we will let you know whether you have been selected for an exchange semester within six weeks; dependent on the number of applications it may take longer.
Please take into account you may need a visa during your stay in the Netherlands.
Design Academy Eindhoven does not offer any kind of scholarship for exchange. EU students can contact the international department of their own academy to ask if Erasmus+ scholarships are available. If your exchange application is accepted and an Erasmus+ scholarship is needed, this is only possible on the basis of a bilateral agreement with your home university. The international officer of your home university will have to contact Design Academy Eindhoven if such an agreement has not yet been established. Here you will find further information about Erasmus+.
