We are looking for students who dare to question the world around them. Curiosity leads to creativity, after all. If you are one who questions the world around you, you probably want to know more about your future studies as well. More information.

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. The program of the day will be published shortly.


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 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 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.
