The requirements for admission to the Art & Science master’s programmes are artistic and/or scientific aptitude (evaluated on the basis of the admissions process) and to have completed the minimum of a domestic (or equivalent international) Bachelor study in any discipline. Candidates should show a special interest in transdisciplinary projects and the ability to deal with techniques that experiment with different methods and media. The 2-year programme is held in English so candidates should also be comfortable in conversing and writing in this language.
