In the Netherlands, it is normal to do an entrance exam before starting at an art academy. The goal is to establish if we are the right academy for you. Being accepted means that you have enough talent and motivation to succeed in our program.

Do I have to come to your academy for the entrance exam if I live abroad?

Yes. We want to meet you in person and get a full perspective on your talent, motivation and skills. We also find it important that you get to know us and our academy. `The exams will take place on Tuesdays from 10:00 – 16:00 hrs. It is possible to visit the academy the day before to meet with our students, get a tour and ask all your questions.
