Here you can find links to the application forms for the three specialisations and a general guide for how to fill out the application.

You will choose between three specialisations in ’Design for People’, ’Design for Planet’ or ’Design for Play’. You must also express your preference for one of the five professional clusters you want to focus on: Fashion Design, Textile Design, Industrial Design, Communication Design or Accessory Design.

There will not be any clearly delineated boundaries between the three specialisations – rather, there will be a focus on cross-disciplinary courses.
