Everyone who meets the requirements must take an admission test. 

It is the admission test which is decisive for you being offered a place.

If you graduate from KEA, you do not have to send us anything as we have the information already.

The admission test has to be solved online. You can find more information about the test here. The test consists of different exercises and your reply to the admission test must show your creativity and innovative skills and your ability to work from a given inspiration material. When you send the test to us you must at the same time choose which one or two specialisation direction(s) you apply for. It is therefore a good idea to get familiar with the different specialisation directions already now.
