You can apply for the selection procedure of the Orientation Course 2022-2023 by filling out the application form here.

The admission round is in the beginning of June 2022.

The deadline to submit your application form = extended to 25 May 2022.

PAY ATTENTION: O-Course students are not eligible for Dutch study finance (Studiefinanciering), and attending the O-Course does not give you the right to apply for a Dutch residence permit. So, non-EU/EEA applicants can only apply for the O-Course if they already have a Dutch residence permit on other grounds than full-time studies!

Submitting portfolio (instead of admission interview)

The Orientation Course (on Saturday) is preceded by a selection round, for which you present a selection of your visual work, and the outcome of the home assigment,  which you can upload in our online portfolio machine, for assessment by the admissions committee of the course. Next to the work, your motivation is crucial. The work you show may consist of, for example, sketches, doodles, photos, videos or three-dimensional work - in short, enough information on your visual capacities (at least 10 and no more than 30 pieces).
