Selection Days

Selection days through Skype interviews
In April and the beginning of May, 2020

Please make sure you have the following ready for the Skype interview:

Before:

  • Send your portfolio beforehand via Wetransfer to admission@designacademy.nl (1 day before the interview at the latest).
  • Set up a table with some of your work at home (presenting the home assignments and 5 or more other (3D) works/projects).
  • Set up your computer or laptop to receive the Skype request.
  • Practice your Skype interview beforehand, and make sure your presentation is no longer than 8-10 minutes.

During:

  • Your interview will take a maximum of 15 minutes. You will meet one or two teachers.
  • They will start with your home assignments. Make sure that you explain your assignments short and to the point.
  • You also need time to show other projects, but do realize that it is impossible to present everything. Select the work which contains your personal story and which also shows the process of making. The teachers will have a copy of your portfolio.
  • At the end of the interview there is always time to ask questions.

Results
Mid May 2020 at the latest we will send you the results of your application by e-mail. Possible outcomes are: 1) admission, or 2) placement on a waiting list (which stays open until the end of August 2020), or 3) rejection. Admission is valid only for the academic year for which you have applied. Only in exceptional situations (and after a written and well-reasoned request) the academy can decide for your admission to remain valid for another year. Definite admission is always on the condition of having passed the necessary diploma/test and having paid the tuition fees.

Note for visa students
For visa students there is an extra requirement. Once admitted you need to obtain at least 30 ECTS (European Credits) per year of your study. If you do not reach that minimum result per year, your visa will expire. In that case re-registration will not be possible. For more information about studying in The Netherlands, visit Pathfinder.
