First phase of the Admissions Trajectory: pre-selection (read only) based on the digital application that you have submitted.

It may take some time before we can inform you via e-mail if you are selected or not selected for the:

Second phase of the Admissions Trajectory:  this entails an in-depth (online) interview with one of the assessors.

After the interview it may take some time before we can inform you via e-mail if you are selected or not selected for the:

Third phase: you will be invited to engage in an in-depth (online) conversation with  another assessor.

It may take some time before we can inform you via e-mail if you are invited to enroll in the 2023-2025 academic study trajectory. If you are indeed accepted into our program you must confirm your placement.

Optional: when invited to enroll you are welcome to meet with one of our Practical Counsellors to discuss finances and other practicalities that must be faced when enrolling and later studying and roaming with DAI. Prior to the conversation you will receive an e-mail with some questions to prepare our counsellor for this meeting. This is the moment to share your financial plan for the upcoming two years and/or to share other concerns or questions. 

During the interviews:

We see the various stages as the hopeful beginning of a fruitful and perhaps ongoing dialogue between DAI and you, prospective member of our student body.

We will not only have questions for you to respond to, we also heartily extend you the invitation to bring up your own questions (as far as they have not been answered by our website) about the DAI's ways of studying and living together.

After each round, the Admissions Committee will decide about the next step. The third phase maybe a good moment for yourself to decide if it is realistic to enrol in September 2023. Some people may need another year to arrange their funding and other practical matters. Read more about deferral.

In general, the outcome of the final decision in regard to your application will be communicated within 2 - 6 weeks after your submission (depending on the number of applications that have to be processed). Applications from candidates eligible to apply for the ArtEZ and Holland Scholarships will be processed with top priority so that the decision will be taken well before the deadline of May 1, 2024. 

Please note that the decision to accept someone into our program rests entirely with the DAI's Admissions Committee, but will be controlled and validated by the Central Exam Committee of ArtEZ University of the Arts. ArtEZ (not DAI) will ask you to send in copies of your official documents such as your passports and your BA or MA certificate. A diploma evaluation will be part of the formalities.
