Masters Talk & Tour and/or Live Admissions

On Tuesday, 14 January 2020, DAE will open its doors for a Talk&Tour, giving prospective graduate students the opportunity to get a sneak peek of all five of its Master's programmes. There will also be a Live Admissions. Below you may find a concept of the programme.


Kicking off at 10:00, you’re welcome to join the Master’s Talk&Tour, a day where you meet the DAE Masters via tours, seminars, and talks. Tours are led by current MA students, they will show you the Academy building, including the workshops, the library and the Master Space. In-depth seminars are hosted by our departments. Join one of our meet & greets with current students or alumni, and ask them everything you want to know about studying at DAE. Staff from the student administration will be available for any practical questions regarding Visa, diplomas and the application procedure.

During this day, you will get a real taste of what it's like to study at DAE.


In the morning, you can hand in your hard-copy portfolio and motivation letter as part of our Live Admissions. Your application will then be reviewed by a number of selected tutors from each of DAE's five departments and the heads of department. If you pass this first round, you will be invited for an interview later that same day, in the afternoon. At the end of this interview, the selection committee will let you know straight away if you have been accepted.

REGISTRATION for the Live Admissions is mandatory.

To get a sense of what we expect from a portfolio and motivation letter, read points 6 and 8 of our Application Procedure.
