Admissions Questions

This page is intended to help you to apply from abroad.

We guide you step by step through our Admission page.
But first let us explain the procedure again.

You have to apply via the Dutch government website and our Admission page. Both are mandatory!

1.

On the www.studielink.nl website select "Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences". Then select the course  'Design' if you choose to apply for any of the following courses: Animation, Audiovisual Design, Graphic Design, Advertising, Illustration, Product Design, Spatial Design, Lifestyle Transformation Design of Fashion Design.*

*Select the course 'Fine Art', if you choose to to apply for Fine Art or Photography.

2.

Then go to our Admission page on our website www.wdka.nl.  See our step by step guide below:

  • After you press submit, allow a few working days to check and process your submission. If something is not clear, we'll send you an e-mail with additional questions or requests.
  • If everything is clear, we will send you an invite to proceed. Then you have  to make a choice whether you attend the admission day (then you'll have to select a specific date) or to apply from abroad (receive your assignment at home).

**No dates in your confirmation? Unfortunately all our time-slots are fully booked already. You have two options left; wait a week and try again - we add extra days occasionally - or select 'apply from abroad' and start this procedure.

Planning to come to the admission day?

  1. Fill in our online questionnaire
  2. Select a specific date
  3. After confirmation, book your travel!

On the admission day please bring your portfolio and one home assignment with you. You can choose your home assignment here, you must choose one. More is also possible if you want to build your porfolio: https://www.wdka.nl/home-assignments. Don't forget to bring your sketchbook and some other analogue work. Showing your work on your laptop screen only does not suffice. On the admission day you will have to make an assignment on the spot while our tutors look at your portfolio. On this day you will be interviewed by two teachers. Within three weeks you will receive an email with the results and feedback.

Not able to come to the admission day?

  1. Fill in our online questionnaire
  2. Upload your portfolio
  3. Upload your home assignment
  4. Upload a second mandatory assignment (you will receive this second assignment via e-mail). You get a time slot to finish and to upload it. Within three weeks you will receive an email with the results and feedback.

Please contact our colleagues at the admission department if you have any additional questions: wdka.admission@hr.nl
