Prerequisites, registration and admission

for studies at space&designstrategies 

We greatly value people with energy, curiosity, and a desire to work and experiment at the same time. The program is aimed towards exploratory research for a better world. To this end, all students should acquire a high degree of flexibility and improvisational skills in strategies for a vehemently changing society. 

Upon completion of the bachelor's degree program space&designstrategies, no admission examination is required.Upon completion of another equivalent bachelor's degree of at least 6 semesters or after consultation with the director of studies, an admission examination is required.

The portfolio for admission should reflect one's own interest and represent the artistic, creative, or manual skills one feels like working on or developing further during one's studies.
