Only the content of the website, and not the form, will be taken into consideration; it is in no way necessary to use sophisticated presentations with animations or other effects. This site will provide the basis on which juries from the art schools may decide to interview candidates by telephone.
Each school can add its prerequisite: they will be visible on the “prerequisites” in CampusArt Catalog online tab. You should definitely check this tab on each course to see if you can apply or not. If the prerequisites required do not match your language skills, education or age for their chosen course, the CampusArt team can not validate your application online.
