Admissions Procedure / Enrollment

Welcome to the spaceship

For the 2017-2019 academic term, we will accept applications on a rolling basis until all positions in the incoming class are filled. Notice will be posted here when the admission cycle is complete & closed for the academic year, so please check back for updated info. 

We have noticed in recent years that non-EU applicants wishing to register in the Netherlands often need more time to search for funding and to arrange housing, permits, etc. They are advised to apply as early as possible. Read more.

Your application & portfolio will be evaluated by the Admissions Committee. In most cases a decision about your application will be conveyed to you within six to eight weeks. If however, the Admissions Committee is split, we will automatically add your application to the next round and you will be duly informed.

Promising candidates, who passed the first selection round, will be invited for two interviews (with two different members of our Admissions Committee, not necessarily on the same day) via Skype.

Students in their graduation year at one of the Bachelor programs of an art school in the Netherlands are welcome to apply during their final year of study. DAI representatives may consider viewing your final exam presentation so it is wise to contact the DAI about a month or so in advance. We also highly recommend that you first attend a Public Event, and for an even more in-depth view, schedule a visit during a DAI-week (please contact our Co-ordinator Study Trajectory and Student Affairs, Mr. Rik Fernhout to make arrangements in advance).

If the year’s enrollment is already full, your application may be taken in consideration for the next academic year.

Incoming students may only enter our program in September during the official start of a new academic year.  It is not possible to enroll in January at mid-term.

After the selection procedure:

If you are accepted as a student into our program, you must register via Studielink as soon as possible to officially complete your enrollment.

Studielink is the Dutch government's digital enrollment and re-enrollment site, especially developed for higher education. As a student, you will manage your own data on Studielink. You will arrange for each year's re-enrollment through the Studielink website and can also enter any changes of address or other data.
