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 a minimum 10 works made with different techniques, preferably colour drawings and paintings made in the past 2-3 years,
  • Skype interview.

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. Presentation of work created at home: 10 pieces of study (drawing, painting, created with different techniques in colour if possible). Five of these may be presented with teacher’s corrections. These should demonstrate the applicant’s professional activity in the 2-3 years prior to the entrance exam.

The aim is to assess the applicants’ ability to shape form, colour and space, their sensitivity in understanding the observed phenomena and the in the use of visual linguistic expressions. The committee also examines their individual artistic inventions, their knowledge of art history and contemporary art, as well as aptitude for a career in art.

The portfolio should therefore include:

  • nude with object environment, drawing
  • head study, painting
  • creative task (drawing, painting or collage)

The oral interview covers the following topics:

  • art history,
  • presentation of work created at home: 10 studies (including full-length nude drawing), croquis and composition experiments (drawing, painting, photo, collage, etc.), of which 5 can be presented with teacher’s corrections
  • career aptitude interview,
  • assessment of general knowledge,
  • knowledge of art journals, media, national and international museums,
  • knowledge of contemporary culture,
  • awareness of universal and contemporary arts
