The students are selected through a two-part examination, of which portfolios form part 1, and interviews/presentation part 2. Criteria for selection are skills and background knowledge, suitability for the program and the field of work the program is built for, and suitability for university studies.

ViCCA explores emerging knowledges and practices at the intersections of visual cultures, curating and contemporary art. We facilitate students to develop and contextualize their own practices within and in between these contexts. The major is open to artists, curators, scholars and practitioners with different backgrounds and experience, who are looking for opportunities to understand, challenge and shift the paradigms of contemporary art and the world around us.
Please note! Applying for ViCCA is possible every second year. The next intake, after studies starting in 2022, will be in 2024 with the application period starting in December 2023.
