    We can consider one student per course.

    HKU offers highly specialized courses that require a strong academic background in the subject area an exchange student applies for. Our experience is that this is not always the case with creative art programmes that allow students to choose from a diverse range of (art related) subject areas or when students choose a more broadening subject area than that of the main course at the home institution.

    We therefore would like to do a screening of the academic compatibility before the nomination of AEN students based on: 
    • Motivation: why the chosen HKU course is of interest and importance for the student’s professional development.
    • A small portfolio that gives a good idea of the work of the student.
    • Curriculum Vitae
    • Transcript of records (GPA/average marks are not needed).
    In general higher art education is smaller scale and a limited number of places is available for exchange students that apply. HKU, as many other higher art education institutions, tend to receive more exchange applications than places available and therefore a content based selection is made. Students take the selection into account when applying and are aware of the possibility of not being selected.

    How does the application and admissions process differ for undergraduate versus graduates?

    Language Requirements

    Almost all HKU undergraduate courses are taught in Dutch and exchange students will be supervised in English as much as possible. Exchange students should realise they will be in a Dutch speaking environment, and a basic understanding of the Dutch language is highly recommended.

    Language test certificate required?

    Depending on the course, exchange applicants can find more or less detailed information at: studentportal.hku.nl/exchange. Most art and design courses have a fixed study programme, of 20-24 ECTS with possibilities for individual projects and seminars of 6 ECTS, that are discussed upon arrival.

    HKU Games and Interaction, HKU Music and Technology and HKU Media (Image and Media Technology, Animation and Audiovisual Media) do not have course units listed for exchange students at our website. Either exchange students participate in a group project or the study program is more tailor made, depending on the student's educational background.
