If you obtain your University Entrance Certificate only after the application deadline, you must submit a certification of enrolment from your school and the last two school reports. If you do not have a University Entrance Certificate at all and do not expect to obtain it in the year of your application, you may apply for admission based on outstanding artistic aptitude.

After you handed in the complete applications documents you will receive an invitation for the Presence Examination. The Presence Examination is carried out in the Rooms of the Expanded Realities Department end of June and beginning of August. It consists of practical and creative tasks and an interview with the Examiners Board. More information on the Expanded Realities Entrance Examination can be found here.

Please note that a holiday trip is not an acceptable reason to qualify for Distant Examination.
