PREVIOUS EVENTS: Masters Talk & Tour and/or Live Admissions

On Tuesday, 15 January 2019, Design Academy Eindhoven will open its doors for a Talk&Tour, giving prospective graduate students the opportunity to get a sneak peek of all four of its Master's programmes. There will also be a Live Admissions.

The Master’s Talk&Tour programme will start at 10 a.m. and offer tours, in-depth seminars and talks. Tours of the Academy building will be led by current students, and will include visits to DAE’s workshops, the library and our Master Space. Want to get a real taste of what classes are like at DAE? Come to one of the in-depth seminars, hosted by our ID and DC&W departments. If you’re curious to find out more about what it’s like to be a student at DAE, join one of the talks given by our current students and alumni – they’ll also gladly answer any questions you might have. Throughout the day, staff from Student Administration will be available to answer practical questions regarding visas, diplomas and the application procedure.
Please note that there will not be one, fixed programme. Visitors can put together their own programme for the day by selecting components that are relevant to their interests. Find the full programme here
