Information and deadlines for digital portfolio submission

    The Department of Visual Communication takes the special situation into account this year and has completely revised the concept of the aptitude test. The aptitude test takes place in 3 phases, which even under the current difficult conditions offer good conditions for making one's own potential visible. As far as technical requirements are concerned, we recommend a smartphone with photo or video function and a computer with Internet access. We are looking forward to your application!


    • After successful online registration for the aptitude test, you will receive the link to the upload portal and all the necessary instructions for digital portfolio submission via Campuscore shortly after the application deadline ends on December 10, 2020. Together with the invitation, you will be given an artistic-practical homework assignment to be worked on.

    • Digital portfolio submission deadline: 18.1.2021

    • Based on the uploaded digital works, the next step will be to decide on admission to the digital qualifying examination in February. You will be informed on 9.2.2021 whether you are invited to the interviews on 10.2. or 11.2.2021.
