Diploma Requirements for the Master

1. Direct access to the initial master is granted for graduates of academic bachelor programs in the visual arts.

2. For graduates from other academic programs a preparatory program may be organized. The list of Bachelor's programs that allow access to a preparatory program will be published in the study guide annually.

3. If you possess a Bachelor but not an 'Academie Bachelor degree, other intake flows and/or bridging programs do exist, depending on your previous educational career (see different flows subsequently). In that case please send your educational CV and proof of it (official translated copies of the diploma's into English) to the Educational Board for further evaluation.

A student can simultaneously enroll in a preparatory or bridging program and with it in the corresponding Master (under the conditions determined by the Educational Coordinator).
Obtaining the diploma of the Master's program is however linked to the successful completion of the preparatory or bridging program. The competent examination commission may for this reason deliberate sequentially.
