Admissions Procedure / Enrollment

1st round application deadline:

17 MARCH 2019 __ before 23:59:59 (NL time)


Non-EU applicants who wish to be considered for an ArtEZ Scholarship and/or Holland Scholarship nomination must apply to the DAI by the March 17 deadline.

Plus we've observed in recent years that non-EU applicants often need more time to search for funding and to arrange housing, permits, etc. Read more.


2nd round application deadline:

05 MAY 2019 __ before 23:59:59 (NL time)


EU applicants and self-funding non-EU applicants are welcome to apply for either deadline, but applying sooner rather than later is advised.


Your uploaded application materials & 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.

Promising candidates, who passed the first online selection round, will be invited for interview(s) via Skype.

We highly recommend that you first attend one of our public events, like a Roaming Assembly, which in the upcoming year are scheduled for March, April, May and June 2019. If you are up for an even more in-depth view, schedule a visit during our DAI-week on location (please contact 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/ October during the official start of a new academic year. It is not possible to enroll in January at mid-term.

For further information, you may contact our senior Admission co-ordinator Rebecca Sakoun (who usually reads and responds to emails approx. once a week). 


After the selection procedure:

AFTER you've been accepted as a student into our program, you must register via Studielink as soon as possible to officially confirm and 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.
