Advice on your application materials:

Digital portfolio of artistic work - What you have already done

Please focus on recent work and make a clear edited selection relevant to your research proposal. Time-based fragments (audio or video) can be shared via links in the PDF file. In the initial selection round, we will not listen to more than 10 minutes of time-based files, so please edit accordingly and make smart decisions about which clips you definitely want the committee to watch and/or listen to.

File specifications: PDF, max 20MB

What do you intend to explore in your studies, and how?

Tell us about the work in your portfolio and the research direction you intend to pursue in the coming two years.
Be specific = write about the topic, why you are interested and how you will approach this as an artistic project.

Please answer the following question in your artistic research proposal as well: Why do you want to do this course of study and not another?

File specifications: PDF, max 400 words

Please include a list of exhibitions, events, publications, grants, prizes, or nominations, and any other information you think is relevant to your application.

File specifications: PDF, one A4 page.

If your application is shortlisted, we will invite you for an online interview with the teaching team.

Application deadlines

Priority deadline: 1 March

We recommend you apply before this priority deadline.

We especially recommend that non-EU/EEA applicants apply by March 1, as arranging financing, official documents, and a study visa can take considerable time.

Final deadline: 1 May

Applications sent in after this date will not be considered.

Note: Meeting the application deadline means successful registration via an online portal called Studielink, and submission of all required documents, including your portfolio, via a second portal, called Osiris. In the 48 hours prior to the deadline, this can take some time, and we recommend you complete the application process in a timely manner.
