Apply to the Wood Program

Applications are accepted each spring from February to March

Applications for the upcoming year (2024–2025) will be accepted from February 1 to March 31, 2024. Admission decisions will be given in April.

Studies in the program cover the entire academic year from early September until late May. The tuition fee is 8200eur per year.

The principle language of the Wood Program is drawings and models, but we also rely on English. We do not require an English language certificate for admission, but students who do not speak English as a first language must be prepared to follow courses, participate in discussions and express themselves verbally and through writing.

Applications should include

  1. A completed application form
  2. A motivation letter and short CV
  3. An official transcript of previous studies
  4. A portfolio illustrating the applicant’s design skills and past work
  5. A financial statement form

The portfolio is required for all applicants. This document should illustrate the applicant’s skills and potential as a designer. It should include samples of design work from courses, studios and practice (if applicable) that demonstrate your personal skills, capabilities and working methods. The document should include your name and your role in any work carried out with a larger team.

Send a digital version of your application documents to [email protected]

We may accept applications after the final deadline if vacancies arise. If you are interested and have missed the deadline, you may inquire about such vacancies.
