Because of the recent developments around the Coronavirus and accessory protocol: all admission exams for Crossmedia Design, Fine Art and Moving Image will be a Skype interview instead of a visiting interview this year.
Dates for the admission exams will be published in January.
Participating in this interview is a mandatory part when you want to study at the AKI. During the admittance interview, the lecturer will judge whether this course will be the right fit for you. The admittance interview will have to prove that you have enough talent and motivation to succeed in this course. During the interview, you will give us an insight into your creative capability and interest, and you are able to explain your work.
In the Skype-interview of circa 30 minutes, you can show us what you are capable of – and tell us what you dream of. Find an explanation of this procedure down below.
