Masters Talk & Tour and/or Live Admissions

On Tuesday, 15 January 2019, DAE 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.


Kicking things off are our current Master's students, who will take you on a tour of the Academy building, including the workshops, the library and the Master Space. Then, at noon, we continue with an introduction to Design Academy Eindhoven's individual departments and Master's programmes, with talks by our heads of department as well as several of our alumni. (For more details on the speakers, please keep an eye on this page.) To round off the day's events, in the afternoon, two of our departments (ID and DC&W) will host in-depth seminars. Here, 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 four 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.
To get a sense of what we expect from a portfolio and motivation letter, read points 6 and 8/9 of our Application Procedure.
