How to apply

Application criteria

There are only two formal criteria for acceptance at the European Film College. You must be at least 18 years old and you must be able to follow lectures and do assignments in English (which is also why both your CV and motivation have to be in English).

Apart from this it is up to the college to decide on admissions, on the basis of how the application form has been used in each case. We look for commitment, personality and potential, and we aim towards an equal distribution of gender. We are also bound by the Danish folk high school law to always have at least 50% Danish students.

The application

Besides the application form (link below) you need to also submit other things, such as a CV, motivational letter, visual presentation etc. You can read the details about the requirements when you go to the online application.

Application deadlines

Even though the deadline for applying for the 2017-18 programme has expired, you are still more than welcome to send us an application as we do get cancellations. And as we have certain requirements to meet (equal distribution of gender, nationalities etc.), it is not first come, first served; we look at the entire waiting list everytime there is a cancellation. You will be contacted immediately if a spot opens up for you.

Next film foundation course starts on 28 August 2017.
