In order to apply for the education program, the applicants are requested to submit the application form via the link below. The applicant must attach a motivational letter, and possibly a link to an online portfolio. If the application is accepted, the applicant will be invited to a personal meeting with the teachers, where it will also be possible to get a tour of the school and ask questions.
If it is deemed necessary, the applicant may be requested to fulfill an admission test. If the application is successful, the applicant is required to pay a registration fee of 5.000 DKK. This fee must be paid no later than three days after the enrollment at the education has been offered.
We currently welcome applications for start in August 2018 and admission meetings are held ad hoc.
Admission to the 3DDA education requires that the applicant has a completed a secondary education (in Danish it is called ‘ungdomsuddannelse’, e.g. tenth grade, gymnasium, professional education (teknisk skole) or a comparative education). The students are also required to possess a basic understanding of 3D graphics and animation as well as practical experience in applying this knowledge. Furthermore, the students must be able to follow instructions in English, and have a level B exam in English or similar.
Applicants with relevant material and prior experience can submit a portfolio / showreel along with their application. The portfolio must represent the applicant’s artistic and technical skills in 3D as well as in 2D. The portfolio must be no longer than five minutes long, and it should only contain the applicant’s best work. It should include animated pieces, turntables showing best-practice models, stills and pieces of conceptual art. The submitted material will be evaluated according to the style, humor and technical skills shown in the material. The portfolio can be submitted for example by providing a link to the applicant’s website, YouTube or Vimeo, or by using FTP. Remember to add personal information to the portfolio.
If the applicant does not have any prior experience or material to present in the application, the motivational letter must focus on dedication, determination and themes of interest.
