You apply for the programme on and submit all documentation that is needed to show that you fulfill the entry requirements. It is very important that you submit complete documentation.
If you are not a Swedish citizen, or you are a Swedish citizen living abroad, you either have to provide proof you are exempted from paying the application fee, or pay the application fee.



Information on how you create and submit your portfolio will be published here November 24.


All complete applications are assessed by a jury consisting of the Programme Director and representatives from the department. The jury choose a number of applicants who will proceed to the interview process. If you don’t proceed to the interview, you will get a message at, saying that your application is cancelled. After the interview week, the jury will rank the applicants.

The University’s Admissions Office will decide if you meet the general entry requirements for academic studies. If you don’t, your application will be regarded as unqualified. If you are not formally qualified, the jury could make an exemption from the formal requirements, if they have ranked the portfolio high and they consider the applicant having a great artistic development potential. This is done on the initiative of the jury and you cannot ask for this assessment to be made.


Key Dates for the application process will be published here November 24th
