The Talent Exam
The talent exam has two rounds where the first part is carried out remotely and the second in attendance.
In the first part, the studio committees evaluate the submitted electronic portfolios. This part serves for indicative raw classification. Almost half of you will be invited to the second round to test your skills in more detail. In the course of three days, you will be performing the assigned tasks directly at the faculty. The studio committees will also examine your portfolio of electronically submitted work. Of course, this only applies to work that you are able to bring by yourself. This is firstly done for “authentication” purposes and secondly because electronic information is often distorted. The faculty committee then decides on the study admission.
Every study applicant and Sutnar Faculty student is eligible to apply for dormitory accommodation. The application must be submitted for each academic year separately. The nearest dormitories are about a 15-minute walk from the Bory university campus.
Please refer to the International Office webpage for incoming foreign students for more information.
If you prefer a higher standard of living, you can find private accommodation anywhere in the city or use the Unicity Living residential complex located near the university campus.
