Through our admissions test, NABA seeks to evaluate your level of commitment and determination in approaching the chosen BA program.
NABA offers two options for taking the admissions test.
You may choose the one you prefer:
- Distance evaluation (artistic statement + project assignment)
- On-campus evaluation (project assignment + personal interview to be held September 18th and 19th, 2017)
In both evaluations, NABA will consider our attitude to be especially relevantâ€”that is, your level of motivation in choosing NABA, taking on your specific program, and working toward the related professional role. If you lack educational preparation in some subjects that are part of the admissions test, this will not have a negative impact on your admission, provided you demonstrate enthusiasm and passion.
You will be asked to write an artistic statement and work on a project assignment according to your program of choice. NABA will use these to evaluate your attitude, creativity, and project skills.
STEP 1 - ARTISTIC STATEMENT
Write an essay (maximum 500 words) answering the following questions:
What job would you like to do after you graduate?
Why did you choose NABA to achieve that?
What are your favorite means of creative expression?
What or who inspires you?
How would living and studying in Milan positively influence your work?
STEP 2 - PROJECT ASSIGNMENT
To complete your project assignment, please follow the guidelines below, which vary according to each BA program. If you have a portfolio of projects that you would like to submit to NABA faculty so they can become better acquainted with you and your work, feel free to mail it to along with your application. You may submit digital, paper, or Internet-based works. Please note that submitting a portfolio is optional and does not replace the artistic statement or the project assignment described below.
So that we can evaluate your attitude to research and your way of handling a given project, you will be asked to work on a simple project. The topic will be sent to you in advance so that you can think about it and gather any necessary information. We are not asking you to create a definitive solution; rather, this exercise gives you the opportunity to research on the topic and collect information and materials.
ADMISSION TEST DATES: September 18th and 19th, 2017
PART 1: Research on the topic
Two weeks prior to the admissions test
You are asked to conduct research on the topic by collecting images, information, newspaper/magazine articles, photographs, and anything else you consider relevant.
PART 2: Project development
Day 1 of the on-campus admissions test
According to your desired degree program of your choice, you will be asked to develop a project. Your project might include freehand drawings, sketches, or digital drawings, accompanied by text explaining your choices. You might find new images or take images from your initial research. The purpose is to assess your current expressive and creative abilities, as well as gauge your potential.
You must also submit a motivation statement explaining why you wish to study at NABA and your reasons for choosing your desired degree program.
PART 3: Personal interview
Day 2 of the on-campus admissions test
The examination board will interview you about your passions and motivations, as well as your general knowledge of the arts, design, communication, and new technologies. Throughout the interview, you will have the opportunity to discuss your finished project and the examination boardâ€™s evaluation of it.
