How to apply to Espoo School of Art

The application period for new students for the next academic year 2023–24 has begun on 11 April 2023, and admissions have been confirmed in May. You can also apply throughout the school year, until 9 February 2024, if there is room in the groups.

The school year 2023–2024 begins on 21 August 2023 and ends on 25 May 2024.  

Enrolment takes place in the Eepos system. The teaching groups according to the preliminary autumn 2023 curriculum and their enrolment statuses are shown on the Eepos registration forms. Please read the enrolling student's instructions carefully before enrolling in teaching groups. Also read the frequentely asked questions here.

New applicants can apply to the school by filling in the enrolment form in Eepos. Those who are already students of the School of Art enroll in groups by logging into Eepos using the user details given at the beginning of their studies.

NB! Please enroll as a new student even if you have previously been admitted as a student (for example, you have taken a break for the previous semester or longer). If necessary, please request a new password from the office (

Students are admitted to groups in the order of enrolment, but to ensure the continuity of studies, those already studying at the School of Art are given priority in the application phase. Admissions will be confirmed in May. Those remaining in the queue will also be informed of the result of the application. Please note that the message confirming successful enrolment is not yet a confirmation of admission.

We recommend that applicants apply for several study groups (up to a maximum of three) to maximise their possibilities of getting into the School. If an applicant is admitted to a group they have marked as their second or third option, the student shall remain in the queue for their first option in case places open up in this group later. Even then, those who are already studying at the School will be given priority.

A teaching group shall be set up only if there is a sufficient number of applicants for it. Teaching groups that remain too small may be cancelled or discontinued.

If you wish to withdraw your application or end your studies in the middle of the school year, please contact the office of the School of Art ( The office is also the place where you submit your group change requests or mid-semester applications.

The application periods for the School of Art’s courses and clubs depend on each course or club’s schedules.
