The exchange programm Concept and Creation starts twice a year in spring and autumn (February and September). The application deadline for admission for the autumn semester is June 1st and for the spring semester is November 1st.

Credits back home

This programme accounts for 24 credits. 6 more credits can be earned with elective courses. As an international exchange student at Windesheim, you will get study credits that may count towards the qualification you are studying for back home.

Hundred ideas

In the student teams you work together on a self-made concept in digital media. A hundred ideas are thought up after a group brainstorm. Two of those will be developed further, these will be researched on feasibility, target group and marketing potential. Both ideas then will be presented to a Dragon’s Den. The winning idea will be further developed during the semester. Each group will end the semester with at least a working prototype but preferabely ‘ready to ship’ product.
