How to apply
Similar as to our programmes you apply via
universityadmissions.se and by sending work samples to us, only you
send them by mail instead of uploading them digitally. We need the
work samples in order to determine your artistic experience and so
they are essential in the selection process. You should send in 3-5
work samples and a short description of them (production year,
title if any and background). Save them on a usb memory stick and
make sure you put your name on it and which of the two courses you
apply to. You may also mail them to firstname.lastname@example.org. If larger
files than 5MB you need to send them with Dropbox or WeTransfer.
If you send us your work samples on a usb-stick this is the
