It is now decided that we next year will offer one summer course
in performance called "Performance, Happening, Action, and Social
Sculpture". At the moment the existing course syllabus is just
a working copy but as soon as it is decided who is going to teach
and we will get more information about the content it will be
published on this page.
Forms of instruction
Usually our summer courses follow the structure of two mandatory
two-week periods of teaching, one in June and one in August, with
students' own artistic work in between. The course then ends with
an exhibition over the weekend of the second teaching week. The
course is worth 15 ECTS credits and is study entitled.
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
Academy of Fine Arts
Att. Jeanette Nilsson

If you want your usb-stick back after the application please
include a stamped and addressed envelope.
Upload/Send in the right papers to
In order to prove your eligibility you need to send
in copies of your previous studies. Here you may find useful links in
terms of what type of documentation is needed and how it should be
submitted. If you don't submit all documents that is required the
processing of your application will be delayed or worst case not
processed at all. Therefore it's very important that you take the
time to read all instructions carefully. Remember that all copies
of original documents must be certified as true copies of the
original. Here you can find out how you should
certify your documents. If you for example upload your documents,
you must scan in your original documents, not copies. Scans of
copies are not accepted.
Application- and study fees

in Sweden for higher education for non EU/EEA, and
Swiss, citizens. Here you may find out if you are
