About the course
This year we will offer a summer course in performance called
"Performance, Happening, Action, and Social
Sculpture" (still the existing course syllabus is just a
working copy). Teacher will be Pawel Kruk, a Polish film- and theatre
actor. Here's a description of the course and
its content. The course is in English and the dates for the
teaching periods are June 4-15 and August 6-17 with your own
individual work in between. Here you find additional information
about the course and a link to the syllabus.
How to apply
You apply to the course via universityadmissions.se and with
work samples that you send to us. We want 3-5 work samples and a
short description of them (production year, title if any and
background). We need the work samples in order to determine your
artistic experience and so they are essential in the selection
process. You can either mail them or send them by post. If you mail
and the files are rather large please use Dropbox or WeTransfer.
E-mail them to email@example.com
If you send them by post we want to have them on a usb memory
stick to this address:
Academy of Fine Arts
Att. Jeanette Nilsson
SE-901 87 Umeå, Sweden
If you want your usb-stick back after the selection please
include a stamped and addressed envelope.
Tuition for international non-EU citizens
In 2011 tuition was introduced in Sweden for higher
education for non EU/EEA, and Swiss, citizens. Here you may find out if you are
required to pay tuition (=application- and study fees) or not. On
Umeå Universitys website you also find all there is to know about
tuition, fees and funding, see here. If you belong to the group that
needs to pay fees the cost for participating in our summer courses
is 83 750 SEK.
Remember that even if you have citizenship in a European Union
(EU), or a European Economic Area (EEA) country, or Switzerland and
are exempted from paying fees you must send in proof of your
citizenship in order for your application to be processed. See
here what you need to send in if you
are an EU citizen.
The Swedish Institute (SI), a government
agency, administers scholarships each year that cover tuition, as
well as living costs, for selected non-EU/EEA students.
Unfortunately however, there are very few scholarships available
and competition among the few existing is fierce, so you will
probably have better chances in finding scholarship opportunities
in your own home country.
What happens after you have applied?
Last ordinary application date: March 15.
The notification of selection results is published on your
account on universityadmissions on May 2. You do
not have to reply to that but please inform us at the Academy of
Fine Arts if you do not wish to keep your place.
