For Dutch students that applied for Game Design & Production

Voor de studierichting Game Design & Production gelden, naast de standaard toelatingseisen van de opleiding, aanvullende eisen voor jouw toelating. Deze eisen toetsen we middels een adviesgesprek en een aanvullende opdracht. We willen met name zien of je voldoende technische en creatieve aanleg hebt. Als jij je voor 1 mei hebt aangemeld in Studielink, dan heb je deze procedure waarschijnlijk al helemaal doorlopen of zit je midden in het proces. 

Wanneer je je na 1 mei hebt aangemeld, kan het zijn dat je in de komende weken nog een adviesgesprek hebt op Saxion.
