Direct entry in Year 2 or 3

It’s never too late to change your life. As a private and flexible fashion academy, we are able to offer new students a transfer from their current university to the Amsterdam Fashion Academy with direct entry into the second or third year in both Bachelor’s degrees; Fashion Business and Fashion Design. We do not want anyone to have regrets, so we invite students who are not enjoying their current course to side-step into ours where they will find themselves in a more informal, friendly, student-centred learning atmosphere.

We accept applications for the 2nd and 3rd year of the Bachelor’s degree Fashion Design and Bachelor’s degree Fashion Business.


Please, visit this page and fill out the form. You will be asked for the following information:

  • Name of current university;
  • Name of programme and year of study;
  • Official transcripts of ECTS credits;
  • List and description of the module you have studied.


We will be more than happy to check if your studies and credits are compatible with our programme before proceeding with the admission interview.
