To start the admission process SPD requires the following documents:
- motivation letter,
- copy of transcripts,
- copy of bachelor degree (if you already graduate),
- copy of your id/passport.
You can send us all documents in PDF at firstname.lastname@example.org. Candidates will be contacted for an interview in presence or online.
The portfolio is a fundamental tool to get to know you better: SPD suggests you to send your resume and present all the projects showing your main abilities acquired so far, including the entire creative process and the final version of the project itself.
Students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to secure a place as the SPD programs have a limited number of participants.
