What should the application contain?

Step 1

In universityadmissions.se, you upload documents to show your basic qualifications.

If you have grades from Swedish upper secondary school, they can already be found in the portal. If you have other documents that are not already there, such as grades from another country or supplementary education that you want us to include in the assessment, they must be uploaded here.

If you do not have full grades, it is important that we get to see the subjects and educations you have read anyway, so that we can make an assessment of whether we think you have the capacity to carry out our education. In that case, there is an opportunity for us to grant exemption from complete high school grades. In order to pass our education, it is primarily important to have knowledge of Swedish and English.

It is possible to do our five-year programme completely in English. Some parts that are given in Swedish then has to be completed through addition assignments.

Step 2

In our application portal, you upload work samples and text.

Work samples

  • You must upload 6-8 work samples, such as paintings, drawings, photographs, graphics, objects, sculptures, videos, etc. Each work sample can contain up to 5 images.
  • Each work sample must show one (1) work. What you count as a work is up to you. A work can be a painting or a sculpture that you choose to display with one or more images (up to five), such as overview images, close-ups, installation images. A work can also be several images that belong together or photos that are, for example, an account of an installation, a performance or still images from a video next to the video.
  • If you have films or video works longer than 3 minutes, you also need to upload a short trailer of 1-2 minutes of the complete work.
  • Accepted file formats for movies are MOV, MP4 (MPEG4) or AVI, max 45MB / min, however no more than 2GB / movie, JPG for picture and MP3 for audio (2 channel stereo is used during recording but there is a possibility for 7.1 channel audio).

The application can only be made on your own merits. If you work collectively, you need to specify what is your part / your task / your contribution to the work.

An attached link to a website is not accepted!

You must also enter the works

  • dimensions (size)
  • material
  • playing time (about moving images)
  • year when you did the work (year of creation)

You can also choose to write a short description of each work. You should do this in the field for description, not directly in the pictures of the work sample.

Text

You are also welcome to write a personal text for your application. The text should be a shorter description of your artistic work. You can also tell about other things that affect your creation, such as experiences or knowledge from other contexts.

Since we have English-speaking people on the admission board, the text can be in English, or both in Swedish and English. If you feel more comfortable with Swedish, you can write in Swedish with a shorter summary in English.

For the five-year program, however, the text is not mandatory.
