In all cases, the international relations coordinator forwards the application materials to the relevant admission committee. If the committee decides that on the basis of the application material the applicant should take an oral exam, the applicant will be interviewed in person or via Skype. A Skype interview will be conducted if the applicant's attendance is impeded and the examination committee offers them the opportunity to be interviewed via Skype. Applicants are given two possible dates for the interview, taking into account any time zone differences.

If the applicant does not have a language proficiency certificate, but on the basis of the oral entrance examination their language proficiency is sufficient to complete the relevant programme, the entrance examination committee may waive this criterion.

If the applicant has a BA in Fine Arts rather than a high school leaving exam at the time of the admission process, they may apply for recognition of their previous studies.

Other requirements:

  • Portfolio with minimum 10 works made in the past 2-3 years,
  • Skype interview. 

During the entrance examination interview, applicants will be asked to present their work created at home. The aim of the entrance examination, which is combined with the aptitude test, is to assess the applicant's spatial perception, sense of proportion, colour and shape, acquired visual linguistic expression and visual creativity based on the presentation of their work, created at home. Work to be presented: study drawings (head, nude), professional (graphic design) works in a folder. The aim is to assess the applicants’ ability to shape form, colour and space, their sensitivity in understanding the observed phenomena and the use of visual linguistic expressions, their individual artistic (designer) inventions. The committee also examines their knowledge of autonomous contemporary graphic design art, as well as their aptitude for a career in graphic design.

The portfolio must include:

  • Head study (maximum: 50 x 70 cm) with freely chosen technique
  • Nude drawing (maximum: 70 x 100 cm) with freely chosen technique
  • Freely chosen creative graphic design work

During the interview, candidates will display their knowledge of art history, contemporary autonomous and graphic design. Presentation of work created at home: study drawings (head, nude), professional (graphic design) works (minimum 20, maximum 30 works). Career aptitude interview: assessing the applicants’ general knowledge and aptitude for a career in graphic design.
