Admission to 4th year (Specialisation)

CONDITION OF ADMISSION

To access the 4th year, the applicant must be in possession of a BACHELOR or LICENSING in an equivalent discipline.

SELECTION PROCESS

The selection is a personalised interview during which the candidate will present his complete course program (year by year), academic record of each year, and a book or portfolio for possible inclusion in the suitable level curriculum. Additionally, he may be asked to complete a task to better gauge his knowledge level.

The CAD expects the student to have creativity, motivation and maturity to undertake studies that require personality, creativity, curiosity and openness. In fact, we select young people who have passion and desire for what they want and who have a real personality with “something to say.” In addition, during an interview, the candidate’s level of general and artistic culture will be considered. The selection process will continue until the limited available positions are filled.
