We accept only application documents with confirmed application forms by your international office!
Notes of acceptance will be sent to the students and their coordinators within 20 days after the deadline by email. Letters of acceptance follow by normal mail if desired.
We consider motivations, language skills and portfolios of incoming applicants. The selection process does not aim at a final judgement on the artistic value of your work or talent. The crucial factor is if we think that you can make good use of our educational offer for your purposes - no matter if you come from a school with a very different approach - and make a contribution to the learning process at Kunstuniversität Linz you will be a part of.
