Selection tests

The selection to the Master Programme New Performative Practices is made by selection tests. The selection process is divided into two parts, described below. The assessment is made by a jury. The selection process focuses on your proposal for presenting your artistic practice.

Selection Test 1 – no participation of applicant needed 

A selected part of the jury will make a first scrutiny of the eligible applicants based on the documentation sent in by you. Selection test 1 takes place in early March. No participation of applicant is needed. 
 

Criteria

In selection test 1 the jury will look at the following materials related to your previous experience, your artistic articulation, method of work, communicability, craftsmanship and:
− the presentation plan
− the problem/-s raised by the presentation plan
− the chosen method
− the artistic approach in relation to your primary artistic practice, training/background and professional experience
− idea/-s about the documentation and its form 

DOCH can only accept presentation proposals that fit the capacity of the school to provide qualified training within the artistic field concerned. This will also be considered a criterion to be taken into consideration by DOCH during the selection process.

Content

No participation of applicant is needed since the selection is based on documentation uploaded by the applicant together with the application. The jury will look at all the uploaded documentation with special emphasis on your proposal for presentation of your artistic practice, CV, biography, statement on artistic practice, letter of motivation and previous work on film. 

Assessment 

The assessment is made on a scale (1-5) where 1 is the lowest assessment and 5 the highest. The assessment relates to the criteria. The result of the selection tests is judged and assessed on the following scale: 

1. The applicant does not meet the criteria.
2. The applicant to some extent meets the criteria.
3. The applicant meets the criteria.
4. The applicant meets the criteria well.
5. The applicant meets the criteria very well. 

After selection test 1, the jury makes a selection of applicants that proceed to selection test 2. You will be notified of the result of selection test 1 by e-mail in the beginning of March.


Selection Test 2

Selection test 2 consists of an individual interview held by the jury. Invitation to selection test 2 will be sent out in the beginning of March. 

Time and Place

Interviews will be held individually at DOCH in Stockholm. Each applicant attend for his/her interview (maximum 40 minutes) during one of the following days:

Date                                    Time

Aim

The jury wishes to discuss your presentation proposal and your ability to accomplish the project. The jury also wants to learn about your working methods and artistic choices as well as your previous/current work, artistic practice and activities.

Assessment

The jury will make an overall assessment on the information received at the interview based on what’s stated under Aim. After selection test 2 the jury will suggest which applicants that should be admitted and which applicant should be put on the reserve list. The dean of DOCH will then make the final decision about admission and reserve list. Decisions will be sent out in the beginning of April.
