Applications 2020 – 2021

The Piet Zwart Institute’s admissions committees review applications, interview, and accept candidates on a rolling basis from December 2019 to May 2020, until all positions in the cohorts are filled.

Due to the quantity of applications the Piet Zwart Institute Master programs receive, regulations regarding immigration, and international opportunities to apply for study funding, we strongly encourage you to apply early and to attend our February 1, 2020 open house if possible.
Once a committee has reviewed your completed application, you may be contacted for an interview.
NON EU applicants: Please pay close attention to information regarding tuition fees and details for international students, should this apply to you.

Applicants from the United Kingdom can check the website of the Dutch government for the most updated information about BREXIT and what this might mean for your status and tuition fee.


In compliance with the Rotterdam University of Applied Sciences and to respond to the ongoing situation with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), educational activities and offices of the Piet Zwart Institute are operating differently.

The deadline for applications for NONEU applicants has been extended until 31 March, 2020. The final EU deadline has been also extended to May 18, 2020.
