For Dutch students that applied for the international Art & Technology class

Voor de studierichting Art & Technology 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. Heb je vragen over de procedure? Neem dan contact op met academiebureau.act@saxion.nl.
