    In the email I got back from the school administrator it read
    and I converted the euro to the dollar and it was 607,170.00 EUR = 769,641.30 USD. So I think thats about the right number if I am not mistaken.

    so, i have some questions about this school, in case anyone has any ideas about it.
    1st, do they provide lesson in english? and whether they have a master degree? i saw their 4 years course, and seems like their last year is a MA? or just a BA but they call it "master"? i've graduated in BA for fashion design.. i was wondering whether it'd be possible to take their last year (if it's indeed an MA degree) thank! :smile:

    All courses are taught in Dutch.

    Language of teaching
    In the first year, however, foreign students are given facilities, fore instance in the way of taking exams (e.g. oral in English instead of written in Dutch). In the artistic studios, and theoretical courses, most teachers speak and understand English and/ or French.
    Our policy is to give first-year-students the opportunity to learn Dutch during their first year in Flanders. In different institutions in the city of Antwerp, there are courses Dutch for foreign students. Talking Dutch with the teachers and colleague students and friends helps quit a lot. From the second year on, every student is supposed to understand, speak, read and write Dutch, not necessarily perfect, but understandable.

    Degree or certificate

    Foreign
    − a degree of higher education with full curriculum − a degree or certificate that by virtue of or pursuant to a law, decree, European directive
    or international agreement is recognized as the equivalent. If such recognition is lacking, the college of higher education can, in a reasoned decision, admit students who obtained a degree in a country outside the European Union that allows them to enrol for the equivalent higher education in that country, to enrol for the basic training.
    − a Dutch VWO or MBO degree (min. 4 years) or a certificate of a successfully passed proaedeutic examination.
    − a High School degree (USA) with a record of transcripts (credits) specifying at least 4 Advanced Placements
    − Diplôme du Baccalauréat (France) − Zeugnis der Allgem. Hochschulreife (Germany).

    The result of the test will be notified after the deliberation following the examination period.

    Hey,

    Anyone has a clue on the books/tutorials/videos or any form of educational tool used by the Fashion department of the Antwerp Royal Academy?

    I am specifically interested in the design books and not the technical ones!

    Tools ?

    What a joke, there are no tools. You get a few xeroxes which are not translated for the foreign students. This school is broke and has barely 15 sewing machines haha and nothing more.

    I always wondered what are the chances of even getting accepted into this or something like Central Saint Martins or Parsons. I couldn't get into any of these schools and it broke my heart very much. I've always wanted to learn fashion design by the best classes.

    I flew from America to Belgium to try getting accepted into the school. I did not get accepted, despite building a portfolio for a year and practicing illustration skills that I did not have before. It was extremely competitive, with mostly younger students taking the entrance exam. They only accepted like 12 students out of (I'm guessing) 200-250 students the week that I was there.

    The exam took place over two days. The first day I drew for 8 hours - impressionistic drawings of student's garments and life drawings of people. The second day was about 6 hours of drawing, drawing only garments. After that we were interviewed.

    I was pretty devastated about not being accepted since I spent so much of my time, money, and energy just even trying to get into the school. But I was not shocked since it is a prestigious design school. I am also 30 years old which I no doubt played a huge factor in not getting accepted. I honestly think I'm just not going to try getting into a fashion school anymore. I keep getting rejected - either I don't have the talent, knowledge, appeal, youth, or all of the above.
