General admittance requirements & Application Deadlines

To be accepted to study at the Folkwang University of the Arts, applicants will need proof of being qualified to attend a University and must also prove their artistic aptitude by taking the entrance exam. The lack of the obligatory school qualification can be overlooked when the candidate is found to be of exceptional artistic talent.

The Dance study course only starts in the winter semester. Applications must reach the university by 15th March in the current year. The aptitude test takes place at the end of the summer semester (beginning of July) each year.
