Request for admission

The Departmental Admission Board (FTC) of Industrial Design decides whether you can be admitted to the ID (pre)master’s program. Although the department doesn’t apply strict rules (e.g. a minimum average grade), the results do count. Special attention is paid to your final project and internship (content, result and feedback).

Aside from investigating your previous education, the FTC looks at your experiences, skills and knowledge in the 'areas of expertise': creativity and aesthetics, technology and realization, user and society, business and entrepreneurship and math, data and computing. 

Request for admission

A request consists of the following components:

  • Motivation letter 
  • Portfolio with examples of your work
  • Copy of diploma and transcript of records (if already available, can be send afterwards as well)
  • List of courses plus descriptions, scope and results
  • Description of (plans/ targets for) your graduation project, including a qualitative assessment (result/feedback, if already available)
  • CV
  • Reference letter

Please deliver these documents in English. You can send your request for admission to Make sure your entire request does not exceed 20MB.
