Applying for the Wood Program

The application period for the Wood Program 2018–2019 is from March 17 to April 14.

The tuition fee is EUR 7200 per year.

We may accept applications after the final deadline if vacancies arise. Applicants applying to several programs sometimes cause cancellations and places may become available. If you are interested and have missed the deadline, you may inquire about such vacancies.

The Wood Program studies cover the entire academic year from early September until the end of May.

The principle language of the Wood Program is drawings and models, but we rely on English to communicate. Although we do not require an English language certificate for admission, students who do not speak English as their first language must be ready to follow courses, participate in discussions and express themselves verbally.
