The entrance exam consists of a general written exam on the following:

-Narrative drawing
-Observational drawing
-Creative drawing
-Image analysis
-An oral interview

The oral interview is the ideal moment to present your portfolio, which should be a resumé of your personal work and those done during your studies.

We’re particularly attentive to seeing a diversity of works, showing both academic skill and an open attitude. Your portfolio must reflect your passion for image-making, art, and creation.

You may come with a laptop or other device suitable for showing your works. If you have large-sized drawings and paintings we advise you to present photographs of them, either by printing smaller formats or putting them on a digital device.

Bring the following to your exam:
-Pencils, eraser, pens, ruler, drawing paper ½ raisin (50×32.5 cm – approx 225 g)
-Any personal material you feel would help your creativity. Gouache, pastels, acrylics,
coloured pencils, markers, coloured paper for cutting up, scissors, glue, ink, watercolours…

Overseas students may be able to take the exam from a distance. Please consult us.
