Admission process

(The following applies to students starting autumn 2020)

Admission tests

Apply to the Master's program in Contemporary Performative Arts with a personal project idea in the field of acting/dramatic performance The project idea should be written on max three A4 pages.

In addition to the project idea itself, you should also enclose a CV and describe how you want to complete your project in terms of form, timetabling, presentation etc.

You can also add audio files, video clips or other material to your application, if you wish.

If the admission group so decides, the applicant is then called for an interview. At the interview, the applicant is expected to account for her/his artistic practice and to give a more detailed description of the project idea. This can be done by providing documentation or a shorter performance. The personal project idea forms the basis for the independent work (degree work) of the students who are accepted.

The admissions group takes a decision based on an overall assessment of the applicant's merits, artistic project idea and performative skills.

To Work With a Project Shared by Several

It is possible to apply for the programme with a project that is, for example, related to other applicants' projects or which is part of a work outside the school. Perhaps you belong to a group where several people are interested in applying for our programme or you have a project idea that is part of the work of others.
Note that you are applying for the programme as an individual, and as a student you will be examined in the different courses and in the education as a whole based on your own work.
