Digital portfolio

In addition to applying for courses you need to send your digital portfolio and motivational letter to us (same deadline as the course application). It should consists of approximately 5 samples that shows your recent artistic work. After the deadline our teachers will look through the applications and do the selection based on the artistic quality of the portfolio along with the motivational letter. In addition we constantly have to adapt to the number of studio places accessible so whether or not we're able to offer a place may also depend on how many students, BA/MA, we expect to have when the term starts.

Send your work samples and letter of motivation to international.art@umu.se
with WeTransfer (if large files).
 

Courses

We offer two course packages per semester (one on BA level and one on MA level) each corresponding to 30 ECTS. Follow the links for information about them and what courses are included. The course packages we offer for the autumn semester 2022 are:

Artistic practice, bachelor's level, term 3

Artistic practice, master's level, term 1

The number of credits a student can be admitted to is restricted to 30 ECTS per term, which equals full-time studies. Students who require a residence permit must be admitted to 30 ECTS. If students are admitted to 30 ECTS the exceeding courses that the student has applied for will be dropped, with the exemption of Swedish for International Students, Beginners´ Courses. These courses can be selected in addition to 30 ECTS in other subjects.

Besides the courses in your course package you have the option to sign up for several workshops that we offer. These will not give you any extra credits and therefore they will not be shown on your transcript of records nevertheless they will hopefully provide you with new skills and would you like to have them documented when you leave you may ask responsible teacher to confirm your participation with a certificate.
