The admissions procedure

To enrol in this master's degree programme, submit an enrolment application through Studielink ( On the enrolment form, under the master's programme, select 'Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design' and then either 'MADtech', 'Painting' or iRAP. You will receive by email a login link and details for the 'Hanze Apply' and details of the documents we require from you.

Answer the questions and upload the requested documents:

  1. Under "Entrance Minerva" you have to upload the portfolio and other requested documents. The application form and additional information can also be found in the Hanze Apply. 
  2. Under "International students"  you have to upload your passport/ID card, diploma, etc.
  3. After everything has been filled out and uploaded, click on the "submit application" button

After we have received your application form and portfolio, the admissions committee will criticize your application documents and decide whether to invite you for a meeting with them.
If you live abroad and cannot come to Groningen for this, we can conduct the interview by Skype.

Admission evaluation

When evaluating your suitability, the admissions committee will assess your theoretical skills and ability to use knowledge to deepen and enrich yourself as an artist. In the interview, you will discuss your work, motivation, bachelor's thesis and the importance of the theoretical component of the programme. The admissions committee is made up of theory experts and art professionals, including a practical lecturer, a theory lecturer, a student and the head of the Frank Mohr Institute.
