The admissions procedure

To enrol in this master's degree programme, submit an enrolment application through Studielink (studielink.nl). On the enrolment form, under the master's programme, select 'Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design' and then either 'MADtech', 'Painting', iRAP or MADAM. 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 and a student.

See here the admission requirements.

Application deadlines

There are several moments you apply to take the entrance assessment.

For EU & non-EU applicants:

Assessments round 1              Deadline to upload application documents: 29 January 2023
Assessments round 2              Deadline to upload application documents: 2 April 2023

Only for EU/EEA applicants:
Assessments round 3              Deadline to upload application documents: 18 June 2023


In the weeks after each deadline, the admissions committee will make a selection based on the application documents and decides whom to invite for an interview.
Applications that are uploaded after the deadline will be assessed in the next/following round.

We strongly recommend NON-EU candidates submit their application documents as early as possible since all procedures/arrangements take time, for example the immigration procedure!
