Admission can be made through an entrance exam for the first year of studies or an interview with a jury for the following years.

Pedagogy in Art schools is very specific and not suitable for everyone’s needs and character. Selecting students through exams and commissions is a way to spot the candidates with enough motivation and a desire to engage in studies that require at the same time liberty, autonomy and rigor.
