Portfolio instructions for programme 2020

You will find portfolio instructions here on September 15, 2019 (by the latest), for the programme starting autumn 2020.

Submit your portfolio

Your portfolio is submitted digitally in our portfolio service/system SlideRoom. applyartsgu.slideroom.eu
SlideRoom closes at midnight (CET) on the day of deadline and after that it is not possible to submit. When you have submitted your portfolio in time you receive a confirmation e-mail from SlideRoom.

Since we review the portfolios anonymously we ask you not to include your name, personal identity number or other personal details in the different parts of the portfolio. Your account details will not be visible to the reviewers.

For the purpose of handling and reviewing work samples, we use an external service provided by SlideRoom Technologies Inc. By using the service, you agree that the University of Gothenburg may handle your personal data and material submitted via SlideRoom in order to evaluate your application for education. The material you upload remains with SlideRoom until you choose to remove it from their servers. The University of Gothenburg may, by individual agreement with the applicant and in a way that the university decides, offer an alternative opportunity to submit work samples.

Application, selection & admission

  • Application

    You apply for the programme on universityadmissions.se 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.

  • Selection and admission

    All complete applications are assessed by a jury consisting of the Programme Director and representatives from the department. The jury selects a number of applicants who will proceed to an interview. If you don’t proceed to the interview, your application is cancelled. After the interviews the applicants are ranked.

    Invitation to interviews will be sent to the email address you have registered on universityadmisssions.se.

    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.
